Bandit Industries is pleased to welcome Atlas Bobcat (www.atlasbobcat.com) as the newest Bandit authorized dealer. Atlas Bobcat is a full service dealer with five locations, serving Bandit customers in Chicago as well as all of northern Illinois and extreme northwest Indiana. They will provide sales, parts and service for Bandit’s full line of hand-fed chippers and stump grinders.
“We’re very happy to have such a well-known and trusted dealer in the Chicago area working with us,” said Jason Morey, Bandit’s small equipment sales manager. “We’ve always had a lot of Bandit customers in and around Chicago, and finding a good dealer to serve them is something we’ve been working on for quite some time. Atlas Bobcat is everything we could ask for in a Bandit dealer and we know they’ll take care of our customers.” Atlas Bobcat first opened its doors in 1965, making it one of the oldest Bobcat dealers in the country. Over the years the company has opened five locations through Chicagoland, including Yorkville, Wauconda, Mokena, West Chicago, and the corporate headquarters in Schiller Park.
Atlas Bobcat will also provide full parts and service support for Bandit machines, and they will also stock Zenith knives for chippers from numerous manufacturers.
"Everyone at Atlas is ready to provide the kind of service Bandit customers expect," said Morey. "They've taken care of Chicago's equipment needs for over 45 years, and you don't get that kind of track record without treating your customers right. Everyone at Atlas is excited to be on-board with Bandit, and we're excited to have them in the Bandit dealer network."
