Jesco has purchased certain assets of Ditch Witch of Maryland Inc., expanding Jesco’s area of primary responsibility for Ditch Witch, Hammerhead and other products manufactured by The Charles Machine Works into Washington, D.C., and the following counties of Maryland:
• Baltimore (county and city)
• Anne Arundel
• Prince George’s
• Saint Mary’s
These counties are in addition to Jesco’s current responsibility in the mid-Atlantic region for Cecil County, Md., and New Castle County, Del.
Jesco will support this expansion from its facilities in Baltimore, White Plains and Frederick, Md. Future plans include expanding the sale of equipment, parts and service to a new Jesco location in Forest Hills, Md.
“Diversification is crucial in every business,” said Anthony Falzarano, Jesco vice president of sales. “Jesco has expanded our product offering to include Ditch Witch products as to offer our customers a diverse array of options to complete their projects. Our customers can utilize our John Deere products for open cut applications or a variety of Ditch Witch products for jobs that require directional drilling.”
Jesco has five locations throughout Delaware and Maryland that currently service the construction community with John Deere and Bomag products, according to Jon Robustelli, president.
