about us

A-L Equipment Co, Inc. was incorporated in 1955 by Art Nelson and his wife Gerry.  After Art Nelson's retirement in 1988, Dean and his wife, Sue Nelson, continued to expound upon its growth. In 1996 Michael Nelson joined the family business with his wife, Mercedes, joining in 2010. 

   In its 3rd generation of family owners, A-L Equipment has grown to become a full service stocking distributor to provide solutions to our customers liquid handling needs with the finest liquid handling products available.  A-L Equipment has partnered with world-class manufactures to insure that you get only the best products on the market.  In 1998 we moved into our current 17,000+ square foot custom built facility in Glendale Heights.  Our extensive inventory of over 4 million dollars is one of the largest in the world for the industry. This allows A-L Equipment to deliver new equipment and spare parts to you when you need them.  If you are in need of service, A-L Equipment has factory trained personnel as well as dedicated service vehicles.
