About Voss Equipment

Our mission is to provide quality material handling products and support services, as defined by our customers, through a partnership environment with a motivated work force, recognizing that profit is essential to our financial success.

With this mission in mind, Voss Equipment was established in the Chicago area in 1940 and we have been serving the material handling needs of Chicagoland for nearly 60 years. Peter Voss Sr., our founder, served as our president until 1980. At that time, Peter Voss Jr. assumed the presidency and has been in the position since. He joined the company in 1961 after college and 3 years of service as a United States Marine Corp. officer. Then in 1990, Peter Voss III joined the company, like his father, after serving 3 years in the United States Marine Corp. Peter Voss III is our operations manager and upon the retirement of his father will assume the leadership of the company. This has truly been a "family owned" company with the sole ownership in one family for over 60 years.
