Black Equipment
is About You

We empower your warehousing, 3PL, distribution center, manufacturing, or construction company to consistently deliver value to your customers by providing reliable forklift, material handling, and construction equipment & services. Our business is built around understanding yours.

Peace Of Mind to Help You Thrive

We’re not factory-owned. Rather, we’re part of a network of entrepreneurial dealers that work
independently and in unison “AsOne” to care for our customers and ensure they always win.

Our customer relationships are built on consistent, predictable, and rapid attention to your needs. Our culture strives to build trust by minimizing hassles, addressing your priorities, and being fair in daily business.

Business relationships aren’t built on empty claims. They’re built on respect for the gravity of
customer challenges, understanding those challenges, and reacting fast & flexibly.

Any company can deliver peace of mind in good times. We want our customers to trust that we
have their backs in the best and worst of times.

Like any business, we have standard operating procedures that continually evolve to meet changing customer needs. However, when a customer finds themselves in an unforeseen critical
situation, we adapt what we’re doing from the President on down to rush that customer back on
track . . . which may require pulling people, resources, and equipment from multiple locations. We don’t go get permission. We act.

Black Equipment has been servicing my plant (Continental Tire the Americas) for over 20 years now. I have had the pleasure of working closely with them for the last 15 of those years where they provide a 24/7 technician presence and maintain my fleet of over 300 powered industrial vehicles. Their Premier Fleet software tracks all of my repairs on a per asset level. Each invoice has my vehicle information, parts used, cost, and even the technicians notes who performed the repair.
They have been and continue to be a fantastic partner who strives to meet all the plants needs quickly and effectively. They provide quality work at a reasonable price with speed and efficiency.

Their customer support and easy access to all levels of management within their company streamlines their decision making process and allows them to take actions much quicker than other company's that have multiple layers of red tape to go through. Do not hesitate to contact them for all of your fleet needs.
You will not regret it!
