In acquiring the Volvo and SDLG assets of Woodco Machinery on April 1, Chadwick-BaRoss, which has operated in Maine and New Hampshire as a member of the Volvo Construction Equipment network, will now expand its territory into eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

“We thank the Benard family, who owned and operated Woodco Machinery, for their four-decade partnership with Volvo Construction Equipment, and we appreciate their service and commitment as a Volvo dealer,” said Stephen Roy, president of Region North America, Volvo CE.

Woodco had served as the exclusive Volvo CE dealer for eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island until Chadwick’s acquisition, and the latter company is now the exclusive dealer in the territory.

“I’m excited to grow our relationship with Chadwick-BaRoss,” Roy said. “They offer exceptional experience, presence and customer service, and I know that their strong performance will continue in their newly expanded territory.”

Chadwick, which has provided equipment to the New England customers for almost 100 years, will offer a full lineup of Volvo equipment and services at its already-established locations and future sites.

“Volvo is a highly respected name among our customers, and we’ve had great success with Volvo products in Maine and New Hampshire,” said Jim Maxwell, president of Chadwick-BaRoss. “I’m excited to bring Volvo machines and Chadwick-BaRoss service and support to our new customers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.”
