Letter from the CEO

mike.jpgRoad Machinery & Supplies Co. is a distributor of construction and mining equipment with sales and support operations throughout the Upper Midwest.  We are a multiline dealer, representing the best brands of construction equipment in the industry, and we back up these preferred brands with our commitment to employee training and service excellence. 

RMS business is anchored by our long relationship with Komatsu, the second largest manufacturer of construction equipment in the world.  Komatsu’s commitment to product quality and superior engineering has produced unrivaled products that offer significant productivity advantages.

Other brands represented, like KPI/JCI, Epiroc and Sandvik, give RMS additional presence in the quarry, mining, and conveying industries.  RMS has a significant presence in the road paving and compaction industry through its representation of Gomaco, LeeBoy, Roadtec, Dynapac and Volvo paving products.

Our lifting and high reach segment includes other market leading brands such as JLG, Sennebogen and Grove.  And we offer many other lines of products and attachments.

RMS is a dealer of choice for quality brands, because we have an excellent customer following and a proven commitment to product support.  We invest heavily in technician training, back our service capability with outstanding parts availability, and work harder to maximize customer productivity.  RMS runs shuttle trucks throughout its Minnesota and Iowa operations to provide overnight parts availability to RMS branches, customer locations and to RMS resident technicians, who are strategically located throughout our geography.  We offer customers used and Non-OEM parts options through RMS’ Polar Parts division, full hydraulic cylinder repair capabilities via RMS Hydraulics, and undercarriage and component rebuild capabilities.  We are a one stop shop for almost all of your equipment needs.

As a family business, RMS functions in a family atmosphere.  We hire good people and try not to micromanage employee activities.  Good people will make good choices for customers and the company, and RMS’ employee longevity is a testament to our positive work environment. 

As RMS celebrates its 92nd year in business in 2018 we recognize that while our solutions to customers are complicated, our philosophy is simple:  We represent the best equipment brands in the business and back them up with responsive, knowledgeable product support.  

All of us at RMS look forward to having the opportunity to serve you.
