In 1944, Highway Equipment & Supply Co. was established in Harrisburg, PA, as a branch office of Highway Equipment Company of Pittsburgh; it sold concrete mixers, water pumps, air tools, and large Lima cranes and shovels. The growing company later moved from its original downtown office to a larger facility to house parts and service departments and on-the-road salesmen.
The newly-incorporated company moved to an even larger facility in eastern Harrisburg in 1951 and became a Michigan wheel loader dealer in 1955. Highway represented more manufacturers over the years, including The Gradall Company (previously Warner & Swasey), Cleveland Trencher, and Allied Steel & Tractor Products.
Highway opened a branch office in Drums in 1960, Lock Haven in 2006, and Brownstown in 2009. The company, a private and closely-held C Corporation incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, employs approximately 85 people across the four locations. Each branch includes service, sales, parts, and service departments.
