Seattle, Wash.-based PacWest Machinery has bought Clyde/West Inc. of Portland, Ore., and has been appointed as the Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) dealer in Washington, Oregon and northern Idaho. As part of the transaction, industry executive Andy Wold will become an investor in the company and will serve as the chief executive of PacWest Machinery. "Our affiliation with Volvo CE and the Clyde/West management team provides a platform to pursue attractive long-term growth opportunities," Wold said.
Under the new dealer agreement, PacWest Machinery will be responsible for sales, rental and service for the full line of Volvo equipment, road machinery and compact equipment. “This transition will be absolutely seamless with continued service to the many Volvo customers in the Pacific Northwest,” Wold said. "Our team members will remain in their present positions to ensure all customer needs are met.” PacWest Machinery has four facilities located in Kent and Spokane, Wash., and in Portland and Eugene, Ore.
