BOMAG Americas Inc. and Territory Manager, Larry Keach, announce Finkbiner Equipment Company as the authorized BOMAG Americas asphalt paving and rehabilitation distributor in portions of Illinois.
In a territory stretching from central and northern Illinois into the Chicago market area, including Lake and Porter Counties in Indiana, Finkbiner Equipment now offers asphalt contractors BOMAG’s line of Cedarapids paving and material transfer equipment and the MPH and CMI RS series of reclaimer/stabilizers. Throughout central Illinois, reaching from Springfield to the Quad Cities, Finkbiner Equipment also offers BOMAG’s milling equipment line.
“Finkbiner’s focus is on the road building contractor,” says John Hood, director of sales, heavy equipment for BOMAG Americas, Inc. “This makes them the perfect match for expanding market share of our paving, reclaimer/stabilizer and milling equipment.”
Keach adds, “We, along with many asphalt contractors in this territory, have a lot of respect for the experience and passion Finkbiner brings to the road building and rehabilitation equipment marketplace. They were a top-performing Blaw Knox paver distributor for decades and, more recently, for Cedarapids and CMI equipment as well. Their commitment to parts and service support will bring this same success to the BOMAG equipment line.”
As a BOMAG asphalt paving equipment distributor, Finkbiner Equipment represents the expansive range of Cedarapids commercial and mainline pavers and material transfer equipment. The line includes the extremely versatile CR662RM RoadMix, the market’s only machine that doubles as both an asphalt paver and material transfer vehicle, significantly increasing utilization rates. “BOMAG has a solid paver line now backed by a solid manufacturer, and this has us excited about moving forward,” says Marty Ahrendt, president of Finkbiner Equipment.
For the rehabilitation contractor, the CMI RS series of recyclers feature full-depth reclamation capabilities of asphalt roads with cutting depths ranging from 16 to 20 inches and widths from 96 to 120 inches.

The BOMAG range of utility and half-lane milling machines offer with cutting widths from 11.8 to 98.4 inches in horsepower classes ranging from 125 to 590 hp. “BOMAG manufactures a broad line of milling machines, and we are enthusiastic about the market potential for these machines,” adds Ahrendt.
For nearly 45 years, Finkbiner Equipment has kept an unwavering focus on serving the road building and paving contractor throughout northern and central Illinois from its Burr Ridge, IL, headquarters.
“Over the years, Finkbiner has earned an ironclad reputation for working hard and doing what it takes to keep the customer up and running,” mentions Keach. “Their talented sales and service team members have been renting, selling and servicing this type of equipment for decades, so Finkbiner will face no learning curve for this part of the BOMAG product line.”
