Ring Power, The Cat Rental Store services Bobcat owners.

On July 29th, the Jacksonville location of Ring Power’s Cat Rental Storeâ opened its doors for an informative luncheon. The purpose of the gathering was to welcome all of Bobcatâ of North Florida’s customers to a show and tell of Cat Rental Store’s equipment Jacksonville Ring Powerand services. Ring Power Corporation wanted all Bobcat owners to know that RPC is eager to help with any and all of their parts and service needs.

These customers and guests were invited by their respective North Florida salesmen to visit the Pecan Park location in Jacksonville. Bobcat owners were encouraged to walk through our Service bays and Parts Warehouse. There were eight brand new Compact Construction Equipment machines brought in for the customers to inspect and demonstrate. In addition to the new Cat Compact Track Loaders (CTLs), Multi-Terrain Loaders (MTLs), Skid Steer Loaders (SSLs), and Mini Hydraulic Excavators (MHEs), a wide array of attachments were on site for the customers to see. Trenchers, Vibratory Compactors, Cold Planers, Augers, Mowers, Hammers and Brooms were all there demonstrating just how versatile our compact construction equipment is. After demonstrations and walk-arounds, guests were asked to stay for a barbeque lunch.

The Luncheon proved to be a great success. Jacksonville Account Manager, Kyle Ryan, said one of his customers was so impressed with our equipment line that they traded-in their Bobcat 325 and bought a Cat 303.5 C CR. This company plans to get all their parts and service needs through Ring Power and their rentals through the Cat Rental Store in the future. Ryan’s customer Clift Pools has also started using Ring Power’s CRS service department for all maintenance and repairs on the Bobcat units they already own.

Ring Power Corporation’s Cat Rental Store has two locations in northeast Florida. You can contact the St. Augustine branch at 904.494.7631 and north Jacksonville branch at 904.714.3517. Please call in for any questions about parts and service on any Bobcat or to rent a Cat machine.
