Since 1978, Chandler has equipped many industries with the manufactured parts they need to get the job done.
Chandler Equipment Inc. was founded in 1978 as an agriculture equipment manufacturer and distributor in Batesville, Arkansas. The company moved to Springdale, Arkansas in 1982 to better serve the agriculture industry in Northwest Arkansas. As the agriculture industry grew and changed, Chandler engineered and designed a complete line of vacuum truck and tank components to serve the liquid waste industry. At the same time, Chandler also expanded their product offering by partnering with the vacuum industry leading Italian brands Jurop s.p.a. vacuum pumps and Metaltecnica s.r.l. brass valves. Chandler is proudly the North American importer and distributor for both of these brands of vacuum products. In 2015, we expanded our product list to include truck and trailer accessories.
Chandler Equipment is one of the leading global suppliers of vacuum pumps, valves, liquid transport trailer components, and frac tank components. Our manufacturing and distribution center has undergone two major renovations; in 2004 we added 20,000 sqft for manufacturing, and in 2011 we purchased 3.5 acres and added 15,000 sqft additional manufacturing space, making a total of 65,000 sqft of production and warehouse space.
Today, Chandler’s manufacturing facility is state-of-the-art and optimized to provide the needs of our customers with exceptional service and superior quality. We are constantly striving to broaden our product list and streamline our manufacturing processes. We proudly sell to all 50 states and internationally.
