Leavitt Machinery was founded by Tom Leavitt in 2001. However, his journey in the material handling industry began in 1986 when he joined Finning as the General Manager of the material handling division. Under Tom’s leadership, the division became a huge success generating revenues of $67 million. Finning wanted to focus on heavy equipment and decided to sell the material handling division for a year's worth of revenue. Tom saw this as an opportunity to grow the business, so he decided to buy the division from finning and turn it into Leavitt Machinery.
Since then, Leavitt Machinery has grown into one of the largest material handling dealerships in the industry. Representing over 25 world-class product lines, Leavitt Machinery has grown from 13 branches to over 30 locations throughout North America. Serving British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Oregon, California, and Washington state, we provide full dealership services including parts, service, new equipment sales, used equipment sales, rentals, and training. What differentiates us from our competitors is the years of expertise in the trade and our dedication to exceptional service.
Over the years, our number one priority has been building and maintaining strong relationships with our customers and manufacturers. We carry more equipment brands than anyone else in the market. This means we’re able to help you pick out equipment without any brand bias, so that you get the most effective machine based on your site’s requirements.
We have matched our services with the evolving needs of our clients offering a wider range of solutions via our rentals, parts, and service divisions. Our in-house financing and leasing programs have proven extremely beneficial to our customers, virtually making us partners in their endeavors for success. Over the years, we’ve become leaders in operator training with more than 100 courses on material handling equipment operation and safety. When it comes to operator and safety training, you are in good hands.
At Leavitt Machinery our commitment is to serve our clients in their journey and creating a positive impact on society while leaving the smallest footprint on the environment.
