Moreover, Williams Equipment fundamentally changed the way area contractors did business in two important ways. First, the company pioneered the rental of equipment, which previously had to be purchased. Second, Williams opened branch offices in smaller towns such as Tupelo, Mississippi, and Jackson, Tennessee–places which heretofore had been considered too small for a specialty contractor supply business. By packaging a broad range of equipment, supply, and rental products, Williams Equipment gave contractors outside the metropolitan area advantages in price, availability, and local service.
After the death of James Williams in 2006, Gordon McIntyre was elected President & CEO. Today, Williams Equipment–still a family owned business–is the leader in providing customer service and innovative solutions. We proudly represent many manufactures such as Bobcat, Bandit, Takeuchi and Wacker Neuson plus a host of other contractor supplies you can find on this website, several of whom were in the Finke and Williams catalog 60 years ago! Many thanks to both our suppliers and our customers who have made our success possible!
In May, 2018 both Williams Equipment and Supply Co. and Williams Equipment and Supply of Louisiana were purchased by Construction Supply Group (CSG) which is based in Denver, CO. CSG is a division of Sterling Group from Houston, TX.
