Tampa, FL — Craft Equipment Company, a Southern states regional material handling equipment, waste reduction and construction specialty equipment distributor, announced today that it has moved their corporate headquarters to 1820 Massaro Blvd, Tampa. The move, a result of company growth, became effective August 1, 2013. The new 44,100 sq. ft. facility will allow the company to house more equipment, inventory and personnel to better serve the needs of customers.
“The move reflects the significant growth at Craft Equipment over the last three years and is long overdue,” said Craft President and CEO Don Mays. “This will allow us to triple our productivity, enhance our commitment to customer support, and significantly improve the process of installation and repair. I’m excited about our opportunities going forward.”
This moves comes on the heels of the recent purchase of American Waste Control based out of Fort Lauderdale. Currently, Craft Equipment has over 20 locations which services customers throughout Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Established in 1971, Craft built their previous facilities in 1973 located on E. Adamo Drive, which consisted of 17,000 square feet of combined office and warehouse space. The new facility will provide Craft Equipment with a two story, 12,200 square foot suites of offices,
