Bobcat Company introduces new authorized dealer in Batesville/Southside

Bobcat Company has expanded its dealer network with the addition of Bobcat of Independence County as an authorized new and used sales, service and parts provider of Bobcat equipment, according to a press release. The dealership is located at 1525 Batesville Blvd., Batesville, Arkansas.

For over 40 years, owner Steve Merritt has been providing customers with a diverse inventory of equipment, including rental services, at Merritt Equipment Co., started in 1973, and Venture Equipment, LLC, which opened in 2006. A growing economy paired with a dedication to serving loyal customers in north central Arkansas led Merritt to open an additional dealership, Bobcat of Independence County.

“We have a rich history in the light construction equipment business and loyal customers in the area,” Merritt says. “Bobcat is a marquee product line that has few, if any, gaps in their lineup. Customers have different needs, and we’ll have the opportunity to serve them with options that other brands simply don’t have.”

The dealership serves a variety of markets, including agriculture, construction, landscaping, mining and quarry operations, and offers customers many services, such as financing opportunities, free delivery within 10 miles, competitive pricing, and parts and service personnel availability 24/7, 365 days a year, the release noted.

“Bobcat is the leader in skid-steer loader technologies, being the first company to build the unit, and the name in itself explains what the unit is,” Merritt says. “Customers are looking for a Bobcat skid-steer – why not give them exactly what they’re asking for?”

Bobcat of Independence County distributes Bobcat equipment throughout north central Arkansas. For more information, contact Bobcat of Independence County at (870) 569-1198.
