Thompson Machinery established an agreement with Metso, which it will serve as a dealer of mobile and stationary crushing and screening products.

According to Thompson Machinery, it is the exclusive Caterpillar dealer in middle and west Tennessee, as well as in northern Mississippi. Thompson Machinery says the Metso product line fits seamlessly within its equipment offering, which supports construction, recycling and roadbuilding customers. 

“We pride ourselves in supporting our customers,” says George McClary, product support manager at Thompson Machinery. “The Metso product line is powered by Cat diesel engines, positioning Thompson as a one-stop shop for parts and service needs. Keeping our customers running and getting the job done on time is our top priority.”

Thompson Machinery added Doug Sites, specialty products manager, to its sales team to support the Metso line. With 17 years of industry experience in the crushing and screening market, Thompson Machinery says Sites offers valuable knowledge and expertise to local customers. 

“Metso’s mobile crushing and screening products are ideal for contractors due to their high performance and mobility,” Sites says. “We are excited to take a wide range of Metso products to market, including mobile, portable and stationary crushing, screening and conveying solutions.”

In addition to sales and support, Thompson Machinery will offer select Metso products within its rental fleet.
