Feb. 18, 2010 – Paladin Brands has announced the joining of its Paladin Light Construction and Paladin Heavy Construction companies to form  Paladin Construction Group. According to an official statement, the new company can better address the attachment trends today that are being driven by contractors and farmers serving a wide variety of construction, agriculture and related market segments in North America and globally.

Paladin Construction Group provides customers with eight  brands of couplers and attachments—many with histories dating back 30 to 50 years. These brands are Bradco, JRB, Sweepster, C&P, CustomWorks, FFC, Harley and McMillen.

The combined company brings together many strengths for its employees, OEM partners, sales channels, and especially contractors and farmers. Hundreds of innovative and performance-driven couplers and attachments for all makes and models of skid steers, wheel loaders, excavators, tractor-loader backhoes and tractors are now available through one company with more than 2,000 dealer and rental locations.

“The strategic decision to combine the two companies will certainly create efficiencies, but more importantly our sales channels and end users are looking to benefit from a larger attachment manufacturer with broader attachment lines,” explained Michael Flannery, vice president and general manager of the new Paladin Construction Group. “We can offer far greater value in ROI-driven engineered products, strong field sales and knowledgeable product support, and a long-term buying decision comfort level.”

Flannery added that since the company already has hundreds of proven attachments available today with brands that have earned trust in the marketplace, its combined engineering resources, manufacturing capabilities and 20-plus field territory managers are now focusing on pioneering the attachment industry’s next level in product development and support that’s on-par with well-established equipment manufacturers.

Paladin Construction Group, part of Paladin Brands, is a manufacturer of couplers and attachments throughout North America and parts of the world for the construction, aggregate, agriculture, landscaping, land clearing, recycle, mining, demolition, utility, aviation and municipal market segments.
