Construction Machinery Industrial LLC

GREENSBORO, N.C.  Construction Machinery Industrial LLC (CMI),
the leading construction equipment dealer in Alaska, has expanded its business by becoming a Mack Trucks Inc. full-service dealer. CMI now offers Mack sales, parts and service in its Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau and Ketchikan locations.

The complete Mack product line offered to customers in the state is well-suited for the mining operations, civil contractors and other construction industries that CMI has historically served. The Mack Granite and Titan by Mack models in particular are expected to strongly appeal to CMI's customer base.

CMI was founded in 1985, with current sales and service business of $88 million. With a 43 percent market share in its segment as a Volvo Construction Equipment dealer, the company plans to leverage its reputation for exceptional service into the Mack side of the business as well.

CMI has expanded its service facilities in Fairbanks and Juneau to accommodate the demands of the new Mack product lines.
