Toro / Stone
Toro purchased Stone Construction Equipment in 2012 and moved manufacturing from New York to Nebraska. Toro will support the full Stone product line of previous models manufactured by Stone. They will reduce the product model offering but adapt new features and benefits to the current models in production. They will expand the line into new and updated products over the next coming years.
Toro's position in the growing construction market with a line of branded products in the hardscape space, which include concrete and mortar mixers, material handlers, compaction equipment, and other concrete power tools.
"Stone built a solid reputation around quality," said Rick Rodier, general manager of Toro's Site-work Systems Business. "These products are respected by rental and construction customers, and complement our current line of compact utility equipment and trenchers extremely well. We see great opportunity to leverage our core strengths in innovation, engineering and distribution to grow share in these new categories."
