RDO Equipment Co. finalized an acquisition of Rocky Mountain Transit & Laser.

RDO says its deal expands the construction technology solutions, service and expertise available to customers out of the eight John Deere construction and Wirtgen Group stores that RDO acquired last December across Idaho, Wyoming and Utah.

“As RDO stepped into the role of being the John Deere construction dealer for the Mountain region, it was a priority to add the technology component so we can provide the full range of tech solutions our customers need,” says Adam Gilbertson, senior vice president of field technology and innovation at RDO. “Rocky Mountain Transit & Laser has more than 30 years of history in the construction technology space. They’re pioneers in construction machine control technology, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome these employees to our team and build on what they have accomplished.”

The Rocky Mountain Transit & Laser locations in Las Vegas and Salt Lake City will rebrand as RDO Equipment Co. construction technology stores.

“Construction technology is evolving faster than ever, and so are the ways contractors are learning to use it to their benefit,” Gilbertson says. “RDO is committed to staying ahead of the curve by finding the right opportunities to invest in our technology teams and knowledge, and that’s exactly the opportunity we saw in Rocky Mountain Transit & Laser. We’re excited by the opportunities ahead of us to partner with customers on a new level in this region.”
