This wonderful milestone was celebrated at their Philadelphia, Mississippi branch on May 16th 2016. Surrounded by family, friends, employees, customers, vendors and dignitaries, the Bates family recounted that 40 years ago, two experienced loggers, W. J. Bates and Donald Grantham Jr., founded B & G Equipment. In 2005 W. J. bought the business outright and has continued to grow B & G Equipment. Today, the business employs three generations of the Bates family. Tigercat takes this opportunity to wish the Bates family many more years of continued success!
