Leppo Rents, a premier construction equipment dealer and rental company, has acquired Bobcat of Jacksonville in Florida. Bobcat of Jacksonville, will now operate as Leppo Rents – Bobcat of Jacksonville.
Founded in 1945, Leppo Rents is a full-line Bobcat equipment dealer offering sales, rental, service, parts, and training. In addition to Bobcat, Leppo carries JLG, will be the Bandit dealer in North Florida, and will also carry many other top brands. Equipment lines range from compact, heavy construction, and access equipment including track loaders, skid steers, tractors, mowers, excavators, wheel loaders, telehandlers, scissor lifts, boom lifts, and more.
“Tim Stokes, the previous owner, told me the thing he will miss the most is the relationships he has developed at Bobcat of Jacksonville,” said Glenn Leppo, chairman of the board of Leppo Rents. “We are proud that Tim trusts us to take care of customers and staff both as he did and in ways the realities of today's construction equipment industry did not allow him to do as a single-location dealer. We look forward to being the employer and equipment provider of choice for the greater Jacksonville market.”
“With tremendous support from our customers, my team has built something that we are very proud of over the past 13 years,” said Stokes. “With an amazing reputation, I am excited to see Leppo Rents take Bobcat of Jacksonville to the next level.”
Leppo Rents now has three physical locations in Florida – Jacksonville, Tallahassee, and Panama City.
Leppo Group is No. 67 on the RER 100.
