December 6, 2013, West Fargo, N.D. – Bobcat Company has expanded its dealer network with the
addition of Bobcat of Toronto and Bobcat of Barrie as authorized sales,
service, parts and rental providers of Bobcat® equipment. The dealerships are
located at 35 Claireville Drive, Etobicoke, Ontario; and 614 Dunlop St. W.,
Barrie, Ontario.

With more than 60 years of combined business leadership
management experience, partners Matt DeWitt, Kai Sorensen and Hugo Sorensen
pooled their diverse professional backgrounds and extensive industry knowledge
to form Bobcat of Toronto and Bobcat of Barrie.

From the outset, the partnership trio sought to redefine the
traditional dealership model — underscoring the importance of timely machine
service and parts availability. Although the two locations only recently opened
for business, the new ownership team has already made significant inroads in
achieving their vision: expanding the dealerships’ parts and service
departments.

“Our business model will make us better able to service
equipment at the speed of customer anticipation rather than at the point of
breakdown,” said Hugo Sorensen, president of Bobcat of Toronto and Bobcat of
Barrie. “We truly believe that our forward-thinking service orientation,
combined with our single brand focus, represents a significant shift in the
compact equipment business in the Toronto and Barrie marketplaces.”

The dealerships will distribute Bobcat skid-steer loaders,
compact track loaders, compact excavators and utility vehicles, as well as an
assortment of work-saving attachments, throughout the Greater Toronto and
Greater Barrie areas.  

For more information, contact Bobcat of Toronto or Bobcat of
Barrie at 416-679-4172 or 705-726-2228, respectively, or visit the dealerships’
