BELLE, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia heavy equipment distributor Cecil I. Walker Machinery Co. has changed hands.

Kentucky-based Boyd Company says it completed the purchase of Belle-based Walker on Wednesday. The acquisition was announced back in December, though terms have not been disclosed.

New owner Monty L. Boyd says he's confident Walker's 700 employees in West Virginia and Ohio have created a loyal customer
base through strong customer service.

Walker Machinery is a Caterpillar Inc. dealer for western West Virginia and southeastern Ohio. Boyd Company owns Whayne Supply, a Caterpillar dealer for Kentucky and southern Indiana.
