ROMCO Equipment Co. and its Parent Company, SMT, Acquire Sierra Machinery

EL PASO, TX — ROMCO Equipment Co., a division of SMT, is expanding its footprint in the Southwest with the acquisition of Sierra Machinery. The closing of the sale represents the transfer of ownership of Sierra Machinery Inc., and its two locations in El Paso, Texas, and Artesia, New Mexico.

Founded by brother and sister Al Teran and Maria Teran in 1981, Sierra Machinery is a full-service distributor of construction, mining, and industrial equipment. Sierra Machinery represents Volvo Construction Equipment, Doosan, Gradall Excavators, Chicago Pneumatic, Gomaco, Terex MPS, Etnyre, and Epiroc, Superior Broom, Bomag, and SkyJack.

"Sierra Machinery has been an employee-focused company offering premium products and outstanding customer support for over 40 years," said Steve Passmore, ROMCO President. "These core values align with ROMCO Equipment Co., and we are excited to welcome Sierra Machinery and their customers into the ROMCO family."

Maria, who had been President and CEO of Sierra Machinery, will continue in a leadership role while ROMCO and Sierra integrate their operations. “We look forward to working hand and hand with SMT and ROMCO to continue the excellent service and products we have been known for [for] 43 years," she said. "This team effort will afford our employees and customers the security, sustainability, and long-term assurances they deserve.”

ROMCO has served the Texas equipment market since 1961, with 14 locations providing equipment, products, and product support.
