Darr Equipment Co. has reached an exciting milestone as the company celebrates 65 years of delivering material handling equipment and custom service solutions for companies throughout Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. Through Darr’s service first mentality and varied offerings, companies have improved their day-to-day materials handling and enhanced warehouse efficiency and effectiveness.
Darr Equipment Co. recognized a need to provide materials handling through not only new equipment sales but also for customers searching for rental and service solutions provided by a dealer who would strive to treat them like a part of the family. This was the company’s motivation and founding spirit with its original inception in 1954, and remains the same today: to provide the industry’s best equipment and services so that their customers recommend Darr, equipment operators prefer Darr, and their employees are proud to work at Darr. Darr has achieved these goals through its ongoing commitment to excellence coupled with strong customer loyalty.
A fourth-generation, family owned and operated business, it has maintained its privately held ownership throughout its history. This allows Darr to control key strategic and business decisions to ensure a consistent focus on meeting the specific business needs of its customer base.
Darr leadership has reflected saying, "“We started out with a philosophy of listening to the marketplace, delivering quality products and providing attentive customer service. Our founding beliefs remain our top priority today and I believe because of that - our company remains viable, strong and growing. A big thank you to the hundreds of valued customers and strategic partners, but especially to those who had faith in Darr from the very beginning.”
The company’s suite of product and service offerings has expanded over the last six decades in response to customers’ evolving business expectations and industry demands. Today, customers ranging from grocery stores to tiling companies have used Darr as their dealer and service provider of choice for nearly all areas of their materials handling and warehouse operations.
Thanks to our incredible customers and partners, these last 65 years have been an incredible journey for Darr Equipment to take as a business. As a company, we're proud to report that our business is solid, and that we are looking forward to the next 65 years that lie ahead. Darr Equipment remains motivated: we still want to know what’s next in industrial equipment and materials handling products and services, and with our experience, take our customers there.
