The Greater Reading Chamber Alliance (GRCA), announced the sale of 14.4 acres of land to McGrew Enterprises, LLC, d/b/a Crownstone Equipment. The parcel of land sits on the northwest corner of routes 61 and 73 in Ontelaunee Township.

McGrew Enterprises, LLC, d/b/a Crownstone Equipment, was created in April 2018 in anticipation of the acquisitions of the Bobcat of York and Bobcat of Adams County operations. Since then, the company has expanded to Frederick, Hagerstown, Lancaster and now Berks County.

“GRCA welcomes Crownstone Equipment, a well-established franchise to Berks County in which new jobs are created in the industrial equipment sales and service industry. McGrew Equipment Company has a history of excellence and will make a great member of our Berks County business community,” said Landon Bernheiser, Director of Real Estate & Special Projects, GRCA.

The future Bobcat of Berks County will immediately utilize six of the 14.4 acres in a 12,000-square-foot building with 15 to 20 full-time employees. Usage of the additional eight acres is to be determined. The company joins Rutter’s and Manderbach Ford as a new business in the area.

“Crownstone Equipment is excited to add the future Bobcat of Reading to our existing lineup of Bobcat dealerships – Bobcat of Lancaster, Bobcat of York, Bobcat of Adams County, Bobcat of Hagerstown, and Bobcat of Frederick. We look forward to providing the utility of the Bobcat brand to the community with our offering of new and used machine inventory, as well as rentals, parts, and service offerings. We look forward to building new relationships and servicing your needs in Berks County. Stay tuned for more information about our grand opening in the fall of 2021,” said McGrew Companies President Greg McGrew.
