DAYTON, MN — Ziegler CAT has completed construction on a 17,200-square-foot rental store located in Dayton, Minnesota. To showcase the new branch, the company recently celebrated with a customer appreciation day at the store.

“The biggest thing we want to accomplish here today is to not only get the word out about the new rental store, but just to show our appreciation to our loyal customers," said Juan Peralta, the Ziegler Dayton Branch Operations Manager. "We have a lot of local customers in the area, and this is just a way for us to say thank you to them.”

Strictly a rental store for Ziegler CAT that will serve the entire Twin Cities area, this location will offer the full line of Caterpillar construction equipment for rent, as well as full lines of rental equipment from MEC, JLG, Skyjack, Vermeer, Polaris, Gorman-Rupp, and Magni. Vender representatives from all these manufacturers were available at the open house to answer questions and offer advice regarding increasing contractor efficiency and performance on the job.

Those attending the open house were also offered a first look at the new, next-generation Caterpillar 265 Compact Track Loader, with new features and capabilities. The loader received significant interest at the show.

Another piece of equipment that Ziegler CAT will be renting at this location is trench shoring equipment from Groundworks. “Trench shoring is a huge part of what this location offers,” Peralta said.

“The majority of contractors that are renting and buying excavators and backhoes are going to need some sort of safety equipment to work in the ground, and that’s why the Groundworks line of trench boxes that we offer for rent is so important," said Chris Edwards, Ziegler CAT’s Pump and Trench Safety Specialist. "Our slogan here is, ‘Rent the Best, Rent Ziegler,’ and I feel these are the best trench boxes out there.”

In addition to all of the equipment that was on display, attendees were treated to grilled meats from Von Hansons, as well as free beverages and giveaways.

With more than 100 years in the business, Ziegler CAT has 2,400 employees in 29 locations in Minnesota and Iowa, making it one of the largest Caterpillar dealers in North America.
