Construction Machinery Industrial, a construction equipment dealer in Alaska, has expanded its business by becoming a Mack Trucks Inc. full-service dealer. CMI now offers Mack sales, parts and service in its locations in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau and Ketchikan.

The Mack product line offered to customers in the state is suited for the mining operations, civil contractors and other construction industries that CMI serves. The Mack Granite and Titan by Mack models in particular are expected to appeal to CMI’s customer base.

“Representing Mack allows us to expand and strengthen our brand and market share in Alaska,” says Ken Gerondale, president of CMI. “Our customers know the Mack name and will gladly consider the Mack product when it’s time to make a new purchase. I also know that current Mack owners are very excited to have a local dealer that can help them with parts and service support.”

CMI, which was founded in 1985, plans to leverage its reputation for exceptional service as a Volvo Construction Equipment dealer into the Mack side of the business as well. “CMI has had great success as a Volvo construction equipment dealer and really knows the vocational market,” says John Thomas, Mack west region vice president. “Expanding to add the Mack product line is a natural fit for them and for us. CMI’s customer support and Mack equipment will be a powerful combination in the Alaskan market.”

CMI has expanded its service facilities in Fairbanks and Juneau to accommodate the demands of the new Mack product lines. The first Mack trucks were introduced to CMI customers during its Customer Appreciation Day event late last year, and additional events will be held at each location to promote the Mack lineup.
