Company Profile: General Equipment & Supply was founded in March 1986, in Greenville, South Carolina with two employees and has grown to over 70 employees whose primary focus is to supply reconditioned and new equipment, tools and supplies to electrical, mechanical, and general contractors throughout the United States.

 From our Simpsonville, South Carolina headquarters, we ship to customers nationwide.

We offer reconditioned or new tools and equipment for sale and rent, and offer attractive rent-to-own options on all of our equipment.

General Equipment & Supply is a distributor for over 100 product lines, including Greenlee, Ridgid, Ensley, Miller Electric, Ingersoll Rand Winch Products, Marklift, Genie Industries, Pettibone Michigan and Sullivan Industries. We are also a Greenlee Authorized Service Center.

In concentrating on the electrical and mechanical contractors, our specialty equipment can be called:

 "BLT on White":
ending - Lifting - Threading - Welding

Rental Fleet

Our Rental Fleet is comprised of specialty rental items for the electrical and mechanical contracting industry, air compressors, air tuggers, conduit benders, pipe threaders, material handling equipment, welding equipment, and much more. Over $3 million dollars of new equipment has been added to provide our customers with the most reliable equipment with which to complete their projects. General Equipment & Supply currently offers over 1,000 items for rent on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. We also specialize in providing the hard-to-find rental items, including: 25-ton chainfalls with up to 70' of lift; 6" Ridgid conduit benders; Hydrostatic test pumps to 1,000 PSI; "duct lifts" to 24'; hundreds of cable pulling sheaves; roll groovers; tubing benders; and propane-powered welders for industrial applications.


“Over 35 of the top 50 electrical contractors in the United States, as ranked by Engineering News and Review, have done business with us.”

General Equipment & Supply's list of customers includes Fluor, BE&K, Rust Constructors, Davis Electric, Spartan Constructors, Bechtel, The Shaw Group, and TIC, just to name a few. With profit margins on new construction shrinking, and equipment costs continuing to rise, more and more contractors are starting to realize,  “WHY BUY NEW WHEN RECONDITIONED WILL DO?!"



All of our reconditioned equipment is warranted against mechanical failure for 90 - days from the date of shipment.

Our "No Problem" return policy allows the return of any item within the warranty period for full credit. Even if you don't like the paint, we'll honor your request for a full refund or replacement, at no cost to you.

Our vast inventory of replacement parts allows for immediate shipment, and significant savings in the case of reconditioned items, resulting in real savings that go directly to your bottom line.

General Equipment & Supply provides full protection against shipping charges incurred to initiate a warranty repair.

We pay all freight charges should a reconditioned item need to be returned for repair, in addition to our paying freight for the items returned.
