Wilson Equipment in Arkansas

Wilson Equipment becomes newest full-line Tigercat distributor.

PARIS, ON, March 18, 2004 – Tigercat Industries is pleased to announce that Wilson Equipment in Sheridan, Arkansas is now a full-line Tigercat forestry equipment dealer.


Owner, Phil Wilson started working for his father, Bully Wilson at Wilson Equipment in 1972 and has been president of the company since 1986. Wilson also recently acquired JNS Equipment in Monticello, Arkansas.

"I chose to pursue the acquisition of JNS primarily to gain access to Tigercat's full line offering of quality forestry equipment," explains Wilson. "Buying JNS has allowed me to get re-acquainted with a number of fine people involved in timber harvesting and forest products in southeast Arkansas and northern Louisiana. I am also excited that I now have the Tigercat line to offer from Wilson Equipment at Sheridan."

Wilson Equipment was the first Barko dealer in the southern United States and a leader in the Arkansas forestry equipment market for many years. Bully Wilson emphasized customer service. "We don't close, we just doze" was a favorite saying of the elder Wilson.

It is Phil Wilson's hope that Wilson Equipment and JNS customers always feel free to call on the dealership anytime, day, night or weekend. Says Wilson, "Although I can never fill Mr. Bully's shoes, I hope to wear his hat and continue as a leading force with Tigercat."
