“We’re very excited to begin offering JCB’s quality equipment to our customers,” said Terry Hlavinka, general manager of The Hlavinka Equipment Company. “We’ve always strived to provide quality products and service, and by opening this new JCB division in Victoria, we’re better positioned to give our customers in both the construction and agricultural equipment markets the solutions they need.”

Hlavinka JCB in Victoria will feature JCB-trained construction and ag equipment parts and service personnel, as well as a JCB Operations Manager.

“We’re very pleased to join forces with such a well-established, family-owned organization with a loyal customer base,” said Dan Schmidt, JCB North America’s vice president of agriculture. “Hlavinka’s 75-plus years in the Southeastern Texas market shows the company’s dedication to serving the people of this area, and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship in the years ahead.’
