Hy-Tek forms construction equipment division

Hy-Tek Material Handling, Inc. is pleased to announce the formation of its newest division, Hy-Tek JCB. Dedicated to serving central Ohio’s multi-county construction industry, Hy-Tek JCB provides sales, parts, service and attachments for JCB’s complete line of construction equipment—including new, pre-owned and rental models—at its headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. The Hy-Tek JCB division will be led by President Jim Ripkey; Vice President and General Manager Jason Milligan; and supported by Account Manager Marty Grace and Product Support Manager Gary Steele. Together the new Hy-Tek JCB team has over 90 years of experience in the construction equipment industry. For the past 50 years, Hy-Tek Material Handling has offered full sales and service support for Yale Lift Trucks, including new and used equipment sales, rentals, fleet analysis, customized maintenance programs and reliable aftermarket parts and service. Now, the dealership will apply its half-century of experience to JCB’s wide range of equipment, including the world’s safest and most innovative skid steer known for its patented single-arm PowerBoom and uniquely safe side-entry door. Other industry-leading JCB products now available at Hy-Tek JCB include wheel loaders, backhoes, and Loadall telescopic handlers. Hy-Tek JCB also offers a fully stocked parts department and a full-service maintenance team featuring professionally trained JCB mechanics. In addition, Hy-Tek JCB represents Felling Trailers, a construction industry staple.

“We at Hy-Tek attribute the company’s longevity, in part, to successful relationships with best-in-class industry partners like JCB,” said Jim Ripkey, president of Hy-Tek JCB. “We are pleased and excited to be JCB’s central Ohio dealer, allowing us to offer JCB’s outstanding product line to our growing customer base and extend our reach, relationships and reputation into the construction industry. Hy-Tek has always set itself apart by providing the best parts, service, sales, and rental support around. Now, we’re able to combine those efforts with some of the world’s most innovative and productive construction equipment. It’s truly a win-win for us and for our customers.”

“We’re very pleased to welcome Hy-Tek JCB to our expanding dealer network,” said John Patterson, JCB North America’s CEO and deputy chairman. “Hy-Tek JCB has already built a strong reputation of providing quality sales, parts, and service. I have no doubt that they will serve to further strengthen the JCB brand in the various markets they serve.”
