Intermountain Bobcat's New Location in Idaho Falls

Scott Machinery, one of the leading construction equipment dealers in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming, announced May 12th the sale of assets related to its John Deere and Hitachi business to Honnen Equipment Company, effective May 1, 2009. With a new focus as the area’s exclusive Bobcat dealer, the company will continue to operate as Intermountain Bobcat.

The change reflects the industry trend of consolidation of dealerships nationwide. Brothers David and Jeff Scott decided to sell the assets of their John Deere business to Honnen Equipment of Colorado so that they could focus on their Bobcat business. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Intermountain Bobcat will retain its Utah locations in Salt Lake City (4100 S. 500 West), Orem (1167 Industrial Road), and Cedar City (642 N. 1070 West) and has opened a new location in Idaho Falls, Idaho (3788 N 500 E). Randy Waters and Steve Frei with NAI Commerce One helped facilitate the new Idaho Falls location at the former Bodily RV along Highway 20 across from Bish's RV.

“We’re excited to give our full attention to the Bobcat line,” says David, president and CEO, regarding the ongoing Intermountain Bobcat business. “With 40 years of industry experience in the Intermountain area, we’re well-positioned to become the compact equipment leader by providing excellent service, supporting industry-leading projects and continuing our tradition of total customer satisfaction.”

For over 40 years, Scott Machinery was the exclusive John Deere construction and forestry equipment dealer in Utah, Eastern Idaho, and Western Wyoming. Founded in 1968 by Brent Scott, the business started in an old converted service station in Salt Lake City and established a reputation for quality service and customer satisfaction. Through the years the company expanded its product lines to include Bobcat equipment in its Intermountain Bobcat business, and has opened new locations while maintaining its focus on reliable service and long-term relationships as a locally-owned and operated business. This tradition will continue in the company’s ongoing operation of Intermountain Bobcat.
