According to a report from Voice of Alexandria, Alex Power Equipment, Rural Lifestyle Dealer's 2019 Single-Store Dealership of the Year, will be acquired by Quality Forklift Sales and Service effective Sept. 21, 2020. Finding the right steward to continue a 99 year legacy was the highest priority when current owners Allan Buse, Dave Deakins and Tom Townsend looked to retirement; the new ownership team is experienced and up to the opportunity.

“Our highest priority in this process was to find a new ownership team, one with the same commitment to customer experience and community,” says Allan Buse, president at Alex Power Equipment. “Quality Forklift Sales and Service is a family organization, customer service is their highest priority. Our shared values is what made this the right mutual decision for our organizations as well as our work families and customers.” 

“The ownership team at Alex Power Equipment has built an incredible organization. They did that not only with strong brands like Kubota, they also did it with a strong team and reputation,” says Todd Doege, president at Quality Forklift Sales and Service. “To purchase a mature company that has a proven model of success and an award winning staff, is an incredible opportunity; we are pleased to add Alex Power Equipment to our family of Kubota dealerships.”
