Honnen Equipment Company, Grove crane distributor for Colorado and a large part of Wyoming, celebrated its 40th anniversary with a big party at its headquarters in Commerce City, Colorado.

The company was founded by Pete Honnen in 1962 as a John Deere Construction dealer. Pete presently serves as chairman and his son, Mark Honnen, is president of the company.

Said Dave Birkhauser, Grove’s senior vice president for sales and marketing: ‘Their second-generation ownership, led by Mark Honnen, has continued the pattern of solid management with great people and excellent sales and service support.’

Honnen Equipment Co. has been a Grove distributor for 32 years and carries the complete line of Grove cranes.
