In 1968 Beck Construction was founded by Roger Beck. The company was primarily an excavation and grading contractor. Now, more than 50 years later, our company (now known as Beck Equipment Inc.) takes pride in a commitment to provide good, used construction equipment. With years of industry experience under our belt, we focus on the value of quality used machinery to our customers.
The Beck Equipment story began soon after Roger Beck returned from a tour in Vietnam, where he served in the Navy's construction battalion. Roger holds an engineering degree from Cornell University. He purchased three CAT D8 2U Series dozers and used them in pond construction and site work. As Beck Construction achieved many successes, the company expanded its inventory to include a fleet of scrapers and worked out of a building in McLean, NY.
Our current dedication to used construction equipment came soon after, when the company began to branch out into selling and renting used machinery. Beginning in the mid '70's and throughout the 80's, sales and rentals became an increasingly large part of our total sales. leading us to the decision to drop the contracting part of the business in the early '90's. With a primary focus on rentals, we provide our customers with an extensive variety of rental equipment - all available on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
Our Company's 25,000 sq ft (2,323 sq m) facility in Preble, NY is home to twenty one employees and more than 200 machines and 400 buckets and attachments in an inventory which includes dozers, loaders, excavators, loader backhoes, compactors, graders, scrapers, screening plants and haul trucks.
We have excavators up to the 100,000 lb (45,359 kg) category and dozers up to the D9 size. We also have a fleet of service trucks that play an important role in quickly servicing the equipment we rent.
Our sales market is not limited to just the northeastern United States. As equipment transactions take place nationally and internationally it is not uncommon to sell packages of five or six pieces of equipment to a single buyer. One achievement we are very proud of is that we have managed to develop a strong reputation for reliably representing our equipment. Because we rebuild, repair and test the equipment we sell, we are able to offer a warranty on most of our equipment.
Roger Beck's commitment to quality products comes from his years of industry experience, during which he has seen many changes.
Throughout our history, contractors continue to rent more and more. They don't seem to keep equipment for nearly as long as they used to. It's not uncommon to see a contractor purchase a piece for a single job and then turn it over. Many contractors don't want to get involved in serious maintenance or service programs anymore, so the trend is to keep newer equipment in their inventory.. There is certainly a greatly increased demand for reliable equipment these days. … Roger Beck
