Terex Trucks signs new dealer in Texas

B-C Equipment Sales’ first Terex TA400 demo in South Texas.

When it comes to the mining industry, the phrase ‘Everything is bigger in Texas' is most certainly true according to B-C Equipment Sales. With plentiful mineral resources, it is one of the main producers of cement, crushed stone, lime, salt, sand and gravel in America. It is also the leading crude oil and natural gas-producing state in the country. It is thereby no great surprise that construction equipment dealers do so well there. B-C Equipment Sales has been dominating the local market for the past 32 years, ever since Bill Lathrop and his wife Cathy decided to go into business together. With a reputation built on tradition and integrity, the family-run company has a customer network covering four major areas in South Texas: Corpus Christi, San Antonio, LaFeria and Laredo.
