With the acquisition of S&L Liftmasters in 2020, Darr Equipment Company successfully extended their family-owned and long-running material handling equipment dealership into South Texas. S&L Liftmasters was a perfect fit for the Dallas-based Darr Equipment, since both companies have stellar reputations in the material handling industry in their respective areas, as well as both being family-run enterprises with decades of service in their communities.

With this acquisition, Darr extended its service territory into the South Texas market. Because both companies operated with similar tenets – to offer only the highest of standards of excellence – the merge was smooth and existing customers did not experience any disruption of the service they’ve come to know and depend on in San Antonio and surrounding areas.

Darr Equipment is offering the same level of quality material handling equipment and service in South Texas as the company has been known for in the North Texas and Oklahoma market for years.
