Rokbak Continues US Expansion By Teaming Up With ProSource Machinery
Scottish articulated hauler manufacturer Rokbak has announced the appointment of a new North American dealer, ProSource Machinery. The new dealer will represent Rokbak in Colorado and Montana and will receive its first machines in the next few weeks. Specializing in articulated haulers, Rokbak offers two models: the 31t payload RA30 and the 42t payload RA40. Headquartered in Denver, Colo., ProSource Machinery has offices in Billings, Mont.; Platteville, Colo.; and Williston, N.D. As a representative of other equipment brands, all ProSource locations support customers with parts, servicing, and heavy equipment.
“My company was founded on the core principles of great customer service and quality products for our customers,” says owner Derek Dicks, who launched ProSource Machinery in 2014. “Rokbak is manufacturing some really awesome new products and there is huge interest in what the company is now offering to the US hauler market. With the demand we are seeing there’s sure to be a lot of interest in these new haulers.”
Robert Franklin, Rokbak’s Director of Sales, Americas, adds that ProSource Machinery covers an important territory for the company.
“ProSource Machinery is an experienced dealer with an excellent reputation,” Franklin says. “We are looking forward to a long and productive working relationship together.”
Dicks has always had a love for machinery. He began his career as a heavy equipment mechanic, working his way up the ladder over the course of 25 years at a heavy equipment corporate dealership. During this time, he saw opportunities to create a distribution company that could be made differently and perform better. He started ProSource in a spare bedroom at his home, with his daughter as his only employee. Today, ProSource Machinery has 23 employees and serves a variety of industries across the region.
