Cheers to 75 Years!
We’re excited to announce that Cleveland Brothers is celebrating 75 years in business! Founded in 1948, when brothers Bob and Roy Cleveland took over the Cat dealership in central Pennsylvania, Cleveland Brothers is now a third generation, family-owned company with Jay Cleveland Jr. serving as President and Chief Executive Officer. The future looks bright as a fourth generation of the family–Jay “TJ” Cleveland III and Thomas “Tommy” Kirchhoff–has joined the company.
Since 1948, Cleveland Brothers has grown and expanded to serve 59 counties in Pennsylvania, 17 counties in West Virginia and two counties in Maryland. This expansion included the acquisition of Beckwith Machinery, a Cat dealer based in western Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia, and One Call Rentals, a network of Cat Rental Stores in western Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia.
“Celebrating 75 years as a Cat dealer is a significant achievement, and we couldn’t have done it without our employees and loyal customers,” said Jay Cleveland Jr. “We have a proud history of supporting customer growth and success. I attribute the company’s success to the values my grandfather instilled 75 years ago—safety, integrity, commitment, teamwork and excellence.”
Cleveland Brothers offers equipment sales, rental, parts and service to a diverse customer base, spanning construction, oil and gas, mining, power and transportation industries. To meet the unique need of our customers, we’ve increased capabilities to include a technology division, SITECH Allegheny; a dedicated hydraulics, machining and chroming shop, CB HYMAC; a crushing and screening division, CB Con-Agg; and we’re part of a nationwide truck parts and service network, RIG360.
To meet customers’ needs in 2023 and beyond, we plan to continue to adapt our capabilities and expand into new industries. “From the time Cleveland Brothers first opened for business in 1948, until now, many things have changed, but one thing has remained the same—a commitment to help our customers succeed,” Jay Cleveland Jr. said.
To coincide with the anniversary, we’re planning a year-long celebration with customer open houses and employee appreciation events.
