Our Company

At the heart of Autoquip’s success is our dedicated team of engineers, sales, purchasing, quality assurance, and manufacturing experts. With many having Autoquip careers that span decades, it’s our mission to continue fostering close relationships with an open-door policy of trust and respect.

I have only been with Autoquip for a few years, but I enjoy the every day challenges to solve for something new. As a logistic coordinator, it is my job to ensure our equipment ships on time and in safe conditions to our customers. That can be challenging with all the special lifts we do in finding creative ways to package them. At the end of the day, I find it rewarding knowing that our equipment has arrived to the customer on time and in good condition.

I started with Autoquip August of 1979 as a welder thinking it would be a temporary job, you know get some experience and then move on. As a young adult whoever thinks they will stay at a job for 39 plus years? I soon found out the complexity and challenges of the job peaked my interest. I learn something new every day. I find the advancement of our product innovation, and the creative challenges of meeting our customer demands very rewarding. I have advanced in my career to manufacturing supervisor and love to pass my product knowledge off to the next generation of employees, all while working for a company that cares for its people. It just doesn’t get better than that.
