Alex Power Equipment’s top priority when changing owners was to identify the right steward to continue the 99-year legacy when current owners Allan Buse, Dave Deakins and Tom Townsend looked to retirement.

Alex Power Equipment was acquired by Quality Forklift Sales and Service September 21.

“Our highest priority in this process was to find a new ownership team, one with the same

commitment to customer experience and community,” Buse said. “Quality Forklift Sales and Service is a family organization, customer service is their highest priority. Our shared values are what made this the right mutual decision for our organizations as well as our work families and customers.”

Alex Power Equipment has been serving West Central Minnesota since 1921 with sales, parts and service of power equipment. The company specializes in compact tractors, tractor attachments, skid steers loaders, track loaders and attachments, excavators, utility vehicles, snow removal equipment and yard equipment.
