Expanded dealer network

JCB North America expands in Texas with South Star JCB Lewisville in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The new South Star – Lewisville location is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility serving the entire range of JCB construction equipment, from excavators, backhoes, skid steers and wheel loaders to generators and aerial equipment on its more than four-acre, fully concreted site.

The building also houses eight workshop bays (two are larger, heavy-line bays) and is supported by a 10-ton shop crane, JCB special tooling, and includes a full integrated customer uptime center. To ensure ample availability of parts for customers, South Star JCB has built a 2,000-square-foot parts warehouse with over $1M million in JCB parts stocked throughout DFW locations.

“Since opening our first location in 2019, we’ve seen a significant growth in demand for JCB products and service in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” says Chris Meinecke, dealer principal for South Star JCB. “With the addition of our new Lewisville location, we are able to service even more current JCB customers in the DFW area, and with our new demonstration area, show potential customers firsthand the difference JCB’s purpose-built machines make on a job site.”

“We are witnessing real breakthroughs being made in the United States. South Star is a great start, and it’s just the beginning as JCB continues to grow in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” says Christian Baillie, vice president of construction equipment dealer sales at JCB. “Finding individuals like Chris Meinecke, who share our vision and have the drive and appetite for success, is a key factor in achieving our goals." 

Situated on State Highway 121, South Star JCB Lewisville is the third location for South Star JCB, which also has locations in Dallas and Forth Worth, Texas.
