RVM History

RVM, LLC | River Valley Machine

History of River Valley Machine

Jon Cloyd, Jr., founder of River Valley Machine, initially started off as a consumer around the end of 2009, beginning of 2010. With the recent purchase of a used skid-steer loader, Jon found several mechanical issues with it. After contacting various dealers, he soon found that the price of repair parts was astronomical.

Jon made minor repairs – and several improvements to its original design. A local farmer saw it and wanted to buy it… RVM [River Valley Machine], LLC was formed. Throughout the years, we realized many of the issues equipment users were experiencing were far too commonplace – cheap / light-grade metals, poor manufacturing / welding, unaffordable high-pricing, etc…

RVM’s Solution was Simple…

Design & manufacture our own products with much better, higher grade metals & materials, improved manufacturing, along with outstanding customer service & speedy delivery.

As we are based in Dubuque, Iowa, we reached out and networked to various local area businesses with the abilities to fabricate Jon’s designs and bring RVM’s products to you.
