Vestil Manufacturing Corporation is a fourth-generation family-owned and operated manufacturer of industrial material handling equipment. We were founded in 1958 in Albion, Michigan when the owners of T & S Equipment started a new company with the intention of manufacturing truck and rail dock equipment. T & S Equipment started with 20 employees and 11,000 square feet of manufacturing space. The dock seal division of United Tractor was purchased in 1968 for the purpose of expanding the product assortment. During the 1970’s, the company redefined its product strategy to include material handling equipment. A concerted effort was made to focus specifically on custom-made electric/hydraulic equipment. In 1982, Vestil moved from Michigan into a new larger building in Angola, Indiana to allow for future growth opportunities. As the material handling market continued to grow and present new opportunities, Vestil built a new manufacturing facility in Angola in 1989. This addition addressed immediate space needs and laid the foundation for additional growth. 6 expansions followed from 1990-1997. A third plant was constructed in 1998 and an expansion in 2005. A fourth plant was purchased in 2010 to further warehouse and manufacturing within the same industrial park.
Vestil Manufacturing Corporation currently has four facilities totaling over 1,000,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space. We have 15 full-time engineers focusing on mechanical, fluid power, electrical, and industrial disciplines. 17 sales people and 10 support staff members are dedicated to providing the best customer experience possible.
