Titan Machinery last week announced that it has closed on the previously announced acquisition of Western Plains Machinery Co. and WP Rentals, consisting of nine construction equipment locations in Montana and Wyoming. The acquisition closed on Jan. 1.
Founded in 1940, Western Plains Machinery has Case Construction dealerships in Billings, Great Falls, Missoula, and Kalispell, Mont., and Casper and Gillette, Wyo.
