New LiuGong Dealer IS Equipment Makes its Mark on Missouri-Kansas Market

INDEPENDENCE, MO — LiuGong’s appointment of IS Equipment Sales and Service, LLC, just eight months ago has already turned into a success story based on rock-solid equipment and local service.

The company was founded by Paul Licausi, President of LS Commercial Real Estate, Inc., an industrial real estate company. Through the years, Paul had the opportunity to work with several construction companies and decided that he should expand his company’s services into acquiring a fleet of heavy equipment and machinery. This became IS Equipment Sales and Service.

“For four years we actively searched for just the right equipment,” said Leonard Licausi, Chief Operating Officer of IS Equipment. “Number one, we had to have a quality machine, as good or better than the equipment that was already being used in our market. Number two, the price had to be attractive to our prospective customers. So, you can say we did all our homework before we decided to represent LiuGong.”

Leonard added that price is important too, and he has had success with contractors who were looking at buying used equipment, with all the unknowns that entails, who realized that for just a little more money, they could buy a brand new LiuGong with a full warranty.

IS Equipment services construction and demolition contractors, with a bit of a sub-specialty in demolition. The new dealer recently hosted their first Demo Day in their yard.
