Fairchild Equipment Announces New Location in Rockford

Rockford, Illinois, July 26, 2023 – Van Clarkson, President of Fairchild Equipment, announces a new location in Rockford, Illinois, which has just opened. “We are extremely excited to have moved into this new facility in Rockford,” Clarkson said. “It brings us closer to some of our larger customers in our Illinois region which will greatly reduce delivery costs for them. The area of Illinois from Rockford down to Rochelle has also seen significant growth in distribution due to its proximity to several major interstates and intermodal rail. This better positions us to serve this important market” he further explained.

The new facility, which is located off of Highway 20 and Kishwaukee Street at 597 Grable Street in Rockford, is now home to a growing team and replaces Fairchild Equipment’s Beloit location at 755 E Philhower Road. The new Rockford branch offers triple the space, enabling Fairchild Equipment to add shop technicians, plus provide additional office space for service writers, customer care and sales teams to support customers.

“This move gives us a presence in Northern Illinois which will enable us to better service our customers in this area to our full potential,” Brent Maurer, the Branch Manager for the Rockford branch stated. “We are thrilled to have substantially more space in this new facility and be able to bring our portfolio of leading material handling equipment brands, in-shop service, parts and rental equipment closer to our customers in Illinois,” he continued.

This new facility marks the third facility expansion since 2020 in Fairchild Equipment’s network of locations throughout the Midwest. It will better accommodate the expansive product line Fairchild Equipment offers, which includes warehouse and materials handling equipment as well as engineered storage solutions and fleet management services. Its diverse line of materials handling equipment brands provide a holistic approach to solving all of organizations’ operational challenges related to moving, stacking and storing materials.
