AmQuip Corporation was founded by Joseph L. Wesley, Sr. in 1967 and was originally known as the American Equipment Rental Company. In the late 1970's and early 1980's, the American Equipment Rental Company developed a major operations center and office in Vancouver and made other regional acquisitions to become a major US player in the crane rental industry. After successfully re-trenching and managing through the early 2000's economic downturn, and refocusing under the name AmQuip "The Crane People", the company grew significantly, organically, and through acquisition.
AmQuip now has facilities in Atlanta, Georgia; Bensalem, Pennsylvania; Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania; Boston, Massachusetts; Carteret, New Jersey; Nashville Tennessee; Murfreesboro, Tennessee; Memphis, Tennessee; Cincinnati, Ohio,Birmingham, Alabama and Mobile, Alabama. Offering Manned and Un-Manned Crane rental and services.
