About UsKeeping businesses moving since 1983.
H&K Equipment provides specialized material handling solutions and exceptional service to our customers wherever and whenever we are needed. To meet this mission, H&K Equipment has grown into a multifaceted, full-service supplier with a wide range of products and services backed by the most competent technicians in the industry. We will strive to earn our place as the leading authority in our field while treating each customer as a crucial partner in our success.
Founded in 1983, H&K Equipment’s corporate roots extend back to 1935, when Oliver Heidenrich opened a small shop in Dormont, Pennsylvania to represent Elwell-Parker lift trucks in the Pittsburgh region. From a modest, three-person outfit working out of a one-car garage, H&K Equipment has grown into a comprehensive leader in lift trucks, container handlers, railcar movers, utility vehicles, tow tractors, industrial floor cleaning machines, and more.
In 2020, H&K Equipment opened a second location in Elkins, West Virginia to serve customers throughout the state, while companies in its network continue to expand around the U.S.
Today, H&K Equipment leads a vibrant group of seven companies with 12 locations servicing 14 states. Our sales, service, parts, and rental network includes the entire mid-Atlantic and Northeastern U.S. and is steadily expanding to encompass much of North America, while our international reach now extends to six continents.
The H&K Equipment Group represents a fully integrated ecosystem of complementary solutions and services. In addition to mobile material handling equipment, our companies specialize in diverse products such as overhead cranes and lifting devices, industrial lifting magnets, terminal tractor equipment, floor cleaning equipment, and even high-end stone surface fabrication and installation.

At H&K Equipment, the rental or the sale is only the beginning. We work 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 technicians 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.
H&K Equipment’s employees have made our company what it is today. They are the engine that powers our success and our growth. From the first three employees in Pittsburgh to more than 350 specialists at 12 locations, our teams cover over 265,000 square miles of territory, an area that includes 25% of the U.S. population. Our employees’ relentless commitment to their craft and to customer service is the reason that we can do what we do in all the places that we do it.
