Link-Belt Excavator Company

One-of-a-Kind Customer Experience Center.

Link-Belt has an impressive history of machine innovation dating back to 1880 with the formation of the Link-Belt Machinery Company. Over the course of 140 years, the growing Link-Belt organization partnered with the Japanese conglomerate Sumitomo Heavy Industries and branched into several new companies offering specialized heavy equipment. Today, the off-shoot joint venture LBX Company produces excavators as well as equipment for material handling and forestry.


LBX chose Gray Ohio Valley to design and build an attractive modern space for its new customer experience center in Lexington, Kentucky.
