General Equipment & Supplies Expands Link-Belt Sales to Minnesota

General Equipment & Supplies, Inc., Link-Belt's authorized dealer in North Dakota, has expanded its territory into the state of Minnesota. General Equipment & Supplies will serve Minnesota from branches in Hibbing and Shakopee.

General Equipment & Supplies began in 1984 in a down economy and since then its business has grown exponentially. The company became a Link-Belt distributor in 2009.

"General Equipment is excited about our appointment to be the Link-Belt dealer in Minnesota," said Don Shilling, General Equipment's president. "We feel it is a perfect fit for us and a perfect fit for what is happening in this region. The synergy between the oil boom of western North Dakota and the migration of many Minnesota customers into that market will make crane sales and sharing of inventory between the two states not only wise but also very practical."
