History and Vision

Founded in 1989, Wastequip has grown to become the leading manufacturer of waste handling equipment in North America.

Wastequip was created to consolidate the highly fragmented and regionalized waste equipment manufacturing sector. Our vision was to provide the large and growing base of national haulers with a single source for their waste hauling needs, including standardized equipment, highly durable products, inventory availability, faster delivery and outstanding customer service.

Over the course of three decades, Wastequip strategically purchased the top companies and best brands— from refuse and vacuum trucks, to hoists, carts and tarping systems — uniting them under the Wastequip name.

Thanks to hundreds of customers and the dedicated efforts of our 2,000+ employees, we have established an extensive North American manufacturing and service footprint as a one-stop shop for all your waste handling needs. 

A Strong Commitment to Innovation

Many of our technologies were the first of their kind and others remain patented, giving us a distinct competitive advantage. We invest heavily in research and development, with a mandated number of yearly hours devoted to product improvement, new product development and relevant product sourcing.

Wastequip and its affiliated brands have a strong track record of innovation and new product development. With deep industry ties and knowledge, our team members excel in identifying market needs and delivering new technologies to fill product gaps.
