Southwest Equipment, Western States Cat and Papé Machinery join Prinoth as dealers

Prinoth Crawler Carriers announced new dealer partnerships in the western part of the United States. In early 2023 both Coastline Equipment, with locations in Southern California, and Nevada; and Western States Cat with facilities in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming Oregon and Washington became Prinoth dealers.

In the fall of 2023, Papé Machinery (with locations in Northern California, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii) also joined the Prinoth Crawler Carrier group.

Coastline Equipment offers dealer services and will handle the sales, leasing and servicing of Panther vehicles. Western States was awarded the Caterpillar dealership service area for southern Idaho. Western States Equipment has a history of acquisition and growth. What began as a four-branch company has grown much larger with 17 general line and truck engine branches, and 15 Cat Rental Stores. Western States will be responsible for Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and regions of Oregon and Washington.

Papé Machinery offers construction and forestry equipment for John Deere and currently operates just under 30 branches located in different Western U.S. states. They provide equipment in many industries including general construction, power electric, oil and gas, firefighting and rescue, forestry and they have a substantial rental fleet for all types of equipment. 

“We are extremely excited to welcome these three industry stalwarts to our dealer group. With their respective footprints and driven sales organizations, we feel confident that these new relationships will enhance our western foothold and brand presence tremendously. All three of these companies are well-established distributors and have extensive knowledge of their dedicated markets. That should reflect in our crawler carriers sales and rental opportunities,” said Jody Beasley, vice president of sales for Prinoth.
