Springer Equipment - Regional Master Distributor

Having had successful sales and forklift dealership management experience since 1976, Annette and Ted Springer founded Springer Equipment Company in February, 1992. Opened as a niche business selling used forklifts including service, parts, rentals and leasing, the company has enjoyed remarkable growth.

And the growth has not been by accident. Over the years, exceptionally qualified employees with years of lift truck sales, service and parts experience have joined the Springer team. Each lives by the Company Mission Statement which reads in part, “. . . we are committed to be the best at identifying our customer’s needs and pledge to provide solutions with values exceeding the cost of the goods and services we provide”.

In 1997, the President of the Linde Lift Truck Corporation, one of the world’s largest manufacturers and distributors of material handling equipment, persuaded the Springers to become a dealer for new Linde forklifts. The Springers’ success in selling and servicing used equipment carried over as new truck sales took off to the extent that today Springer Equipment Company is one of the top five Linde dealers nationwide. Comparable success has also been evident as Komatsu, Hyundai, Combi-Lift and the Big Joe forklift lines have been added to the product mix.

Springer Equipment is also committed to present material handling efficiency enhancements that can result in increased productivity while reducing manpower requirements through system integration with robotics. This would include AGVs, AGFs, ASRSs, automated conveyance systems and auto storage systems all made possible by today’s cutting edge technology

Springer’s current database of over 2,300 active customers includes customers with one lift truck to Fortune 500 companies with hundreds of trucks and nationwide locations. Each depends on Springer for new and used lift trucks of every description, qualified service, new and used parts, certified operator training programs and wide ranging financial merchandising programs. Springer also provides inspection and appraisal services for financial institutions and consults with fleet operators regarding their material handling requirements.
