BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Toro announces the expansion of C&O Equipment Co., with a new location now open in Houston.

C&O Equipment Co. was founded in 1998 by Lance Clayton and has been serving the Greater Dallas/Fort Worth area. In 2000, C&O established its first physical location in Keller, Texas, selling and renting a variety of products. Since that time, C&O has relocated to Alvarado, Texas. 

The new location will offer Toro's full line of products including directional drills, ride-on trenchers, concrete & masonry equipment, compact utility equipment, walk-behind trenchers and Toro genuine parts.

“Our customers rely on us to provide quality equipment and service, and we're looking forward to being the premiere provider of trusted Toro equipment in the Houston area,” says Jody Clayton, president of C&O Equipment and son of founder Lance Clayton. “Simply put, our partnership with Toro allows us to provide the best equipment solutions for our customers.”

“We want to congratulate C&O Equipment on the expansion of their organization,” says Butch Greeninger, director of sales for The Toro Co. “The growth of their business is in part, a direct result of their dedication to their customers. We're pleased to be part of the C&O story.”
