Wirtgen Group Dealer James River Equipment Now Supports North Carolina

Dealership to carry premier roadbuilding line in the Tar Heel State

James River Equipment (JRE), a leading John Deere construction and agricultural equipment dealership for Virginia and the Carolinas, is excited to announce that starting February 21st, we will begin carrying the Wirtgen Group family of products in our North Carolina construction locations. James River has been the Wirtgen distributor in Virginia since 2008, where the combination of John Deere products and Wirtgen mills, Vögele pavers, Hamm rollers, and Kleemann crushers helped support our roadbuilding and aggregate customers by providing superior products and service.


"Picking up the Wirtgen line was a real game-changer for us. The quality of the products truly live up to their reputation as the leading road-building machines in the world. The Wirtgen Group mission statement is 'close to our customers'- again, so true. Having the line helped us become better partners to our customers and more versatile. We are excited to bring that passion and partnership to the customers in North Carolina," says John Grantier, Vice President of Sales at JRE.

The Wirtgen Group consists of four primary brands - Wirtgen milling machines and stabilizers, Vögele pavers, Hamm compaction equipment, and Kleemann crushers and screening plants. Being an excellent Wirtgen dealer is all about product support. James River stocks millions of dollars in parts, has dedicated parts and service specialists on call, as well as a commitment to 24-hour technical support.

"One critical change we made years ago that is key to our success was appointing dedicated Wirtgen Group specialists. Our technicians became the true partners to our customers day and night while our Wirtgen Group parts personnel became crucial consultants. They make sure we have the right parts on the shelf every day for our road-building customers,” says Andy Lloyd, Vice President of Product Support at JRE.

JRE is excited to offer roadbuilding and aggregate customers this premium product in North Carolina and providing an excellent sales and product support experience, consistently - that keep us 'close to our customers'.
