Bobcat Central, Inc. started in Stockton in 1976 by Louis and Josie Franzia with son Don joining them the next year. At the time, Bobcat® equipment was a new invention made in Fargo, North Dakota. When Lou and Josie Franzia took on the equipment line and opened their dealership, Bobcat®  equipment was a relatively unknown machine but it is perfect for working in small spaces. From Stockton, they expanded into Bobcat of Fresno in 2002 and Merced in 2005. In 2015, we opened Bobcat of Sacramento and Bobcat of Reno.
