Kirby-Smith Machinery Inc. acquires Dallas-based Continental Equipment Company.
The move allows for OKC-based Kirby-Smith to retain the Komatsu construction equipment line as well as maintain additional construction-related product lines.
Continental has five locations throughout Texas, all of which Kirby-Smith will operate under its own name.
At completion of the deal, Kirby-Smith will operate nine branches in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Kansas City, St. Louis, Dallas, Fort Worth, Amarillo, Lubbock and Abilene, Texas.
The company will employ more than 300 people.
