History

Lano Equipment, Inc. is a second-generation, family-owned and operated equipment dealership established by four brothers just out of the military service in 1946.

The firm’s original location was on First Street in Chaska, MN. In 1978, Lano Equipment, Inc. moved to a new 16,000 square foot, six-acre facility in Shakopee, MN. In 1991, Lano Equipment, Inc expanded into the north metro area with a new 18,000 square foot facility.

As the case with many distributors, Lano Equipment, Inc. had its roots in agriculture, but has since grown into one of the largest light industrial equipment distributorships in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Hauser, Joe, Dick, and Benny Lano are the brothers who made up the first generation of the company. Joe Jr., Roger, Gary, Rod, Brad, and Kurt, represent members of the second Lano generation.

Lano Equipment, Inc. currently lists 62 employees on its payroll between three stores. In addition to Bobcat, the firm represents Kubota, Doosan, Toro, Sany, Stihl, Felling Trailers, Load Trail, EBY Trailers, and other significant lines of attachments.

“Melroe continues to be number 1 in skidsteer loader sales,” observes Lano. “Lano Equipment, Inc., along with Melroe Company, continues to provide a consistent partnership that gives customers the very best in skidsteer loaders.”

“Melroe Bobcat has played a big part in the success of this dealership. From just a few machines sold a year in the early 1960s, we have grown to be one of the largest Bobcat dealers in the world.” – Company founder, Hauser Lano.
