With locations in Iowa, Tennessee and North Carolina, our CustomWorks division gives our dealers the ability to offer more specialized products than are available through the OEM and when finished, a "No-Problem" machine that is sent to your yard - thanks to our quality performance final check carried out on each machine. In addition to saving money on freight, by shipping attachments with your machine, the custom shop also enables the dealers to sell more machines into specialty markets with job specific attachments and machines, knowing exact costs before quoting the customer.

Commitment to Value-Added Design & Engineering
Paladin Heavy Construction goes the extra mile to obtain OEM engineering and approval of the design and quality of each coupler and attachment it offers. This extra effort enables the company to provide the customer with proven products that are closely performance-matched to each OEM machine. This unique, value-added approach includes more testing and evaluation of couplers and attachments than any other supplier in the industry.
One of our primary goals during the design and engineering of each coupler and attachment is to increase the versatility and productivity of the base machine without compromising its performance. A thorough understanding of each base machine's limits and systems is required for quality coupler design, proper attachments and installation.
Several examples illustrate our design and engineering philosophy. First, JRB is the only coupler manufacturer that has obtained OEM engineering approval from CNH, Kawasaki, Kobelco, Komatsu America International and John Deere. All too often, attachment and coupler manufacturers approach OEM's with a job-shop, one-size-fits-all mentality. We believe it is critical to work closely with our OEM's to optimize the design of the tool or coupler – including pin spacing and the hydraulic systems that make it all work – to maximize the performance of the base machine.
