National Equipment Dealers LLC (NED) finalized its acquisition of L & N Supply Co., a family-owned heavy equipment distributor located in Dallas, Ga. L & N Supply Co. earned a strong reputation for servicing customers throughout Georgia over the past 32-plus years.
Established in 1990 by Jimmie Brian Long, L & N Supply Company Inc. began as a distributor of ground-engaging tools and undercarriage components. Over the years the company grew to represent several major heavy equipment manufacturers, some of which are also represented by NED like Manitou, Mustang, WerkBrau and Connect Work Tools.
“L & N was the right partner for NED for many reasons, including their company heritage and values,” said Will Blackerby, vice president of fleet, NED. “They have been in business for over 32 years. You don’t stay in business that long unless you are doing something right, and ultimately that boils down to taking care of your customers.”
L & N Supply Co. will become NED’s 15th location across a five-state footprint. Zach Long, Brian’s son, was just an infant when the company began. Today, as the company becomes a new NED branch, Zach Long will continue to work with NED as the general manager for the Atlanta market.
“L & N Supply flourished over the years because we remained committed to important principles like safety, integrity, quality, and value for our customers. We look forward to continuing this commitment as we move ahead with NED,” said Zach Long.
