Fairchild Equipment Celebrates Ribbon Cutting

Menomonee Falls, WI –On Monday, December 1, 2014 at 11 a.m., Fairchild Equipment, in conjunction with the Waukesha County Business Alliance, celebrated the opening of their new Menomonee Falls facility and expansion into southern Wisconsin with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. The ceremony took place at the newly refinished facility located at N52 W13821 North Park Drive, Menomonee Falls, WI 53051.

“What we say here at Fairchild is, you will never go wrong doing right by your customers,” said Van Clarkson, Fairchild Equipment Southern Division President. “We are off to a great start, not only here in Menomonee Falls, but also in our other Southern Division branches in Beloit, Racine and Sheboygan; and being in the Menomonee Falls community, we will not only be able to maintain our current customers, but anticipate doubling our growth in the area of southern Wisconsin and the metro Milwaukee area over the course of the next few years.”

Fairchild accompanied Waukesha County Business Alliance representatives, Ambassadors and members of the Waukesha community administration through the newly refinished facility that highlighted their full service forklift shop, full-line parts department, new and used equipment for sale and rental, along with their abundant outbound fleet of service vans.

“It is our job to make sure customers stay in production, so if a forklift is down and cannot be brought into our service shop, we’re ready to send a service technician to their facility,” said Gary Fairchild, President and CEO of Fairchild Equipment. “Not only that, but if the customer doesn’t have a unit to use in place of the downed equipment, we do offer rental equipment to make sure they can keep their operation running smoothly.”
