OUR MISSION STATEMENT
H&K Equipment, Inc. was founded in 1983 to provide specialized material handling solutions and exceptional service to our customers wherever they are needed. To meet that mission, H&K Equipment has grown into a diverse and multi-faceted corporation with a wide range of products, services and the most competent technicians in the industry. With pride in our roots of over 75 years in supplying and servicing industrial equipment, we will continuously strive to remain the authority in our field while treating each customer as a partner in our success.
H&K Equipment is a comprehensive leader in lift trucks, container handlers, railcar movers, personnel carriers, yard trucks, and industrial sweeping and scrubbing equipment. Our sales, service, parts, and rental network includes the entire Mid-Atlantic region and is steadily expanding to encompass much of North America. Our international reach now extends to six continents.
With humble beginnings as a three-person outfit working out of a one-car garage near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, H&K Equipment now leads a family of companies that employs over 200 people in eight facilities across two states.
H&K Equipment's family of companies are more than just subsidiaries; they are part of a growing network that has enabled us to succeed in multiple markets and in changing economic conditions. Through strategic overlap, cross-company support, and creative diversification, we are creating a complete ecosystem that can provide any business with the tools it needs to thrive.

We are an authorized dealer for over two dozen of the most elite brands in forklifts, materials handling and industrial cleaning equipment. Our product lines include lift trucks and loaders by Taylor, UniCarriers, Komatsu, Elwell-Parker, Manitou, Pettibone, Autolift, Schreck, Big Joe, and Tusk; forklift attachments; industrial cleaning equipment by Advance; railcar movers by Rail King; and aerial work platforms by JLG. We also represent products from A&G Mecury, EnerSys, and many more.
H&K Equipment is also a primary supplier of parts and service for older and out-of-production machines. Our print files, historical data, and specification records enable us to repair, maintain, and preserve many rare and highly specialized vehicles that are still in use around the country. As part of our commitment to these vital working pieces of industrial history, H&K Equipment is now the OEM for Elwell-Parker, Autolift, and Schreck.
At H&K Equipment, the rental or the sale is only the beginning. We partner with our customers for the entire life of the vehicle, starting with preventive maintenance and service plans that maximize uptime and reduce operating costs. And when equipment does break down, our quick-response road mechanics are among the most highly trained in the industry.
We understand that speed, accuracy, and convenience are critical for smooth operations, which is why we maintain an extensive parts inventory with over 30,000 items in stock. We also believe that there is no such thing as an unavailable part. Whether it's fabricating a component for an obscure custom vehicle or tracking down hard-to-find items for antiquated equipment, our professionals can solve any parts issue for any machine.
And for heavy-use or aging machinery, we are one of the most experienced industrial refurbishing and remanufacturing shops in the nation. We tackle the toughest projects and tailor cost-effective solutions to any situation for any vehicle, no matter how specialized.
