Over 50 Years of Experience




The Joos Equipment Company was founded in 1955 by Robert Joos, a Chemical Engineer from the University of Pennsylvania. Originally, the Company was a distributorship for Allis-Chalmers whose products included mechanical drives, motors, pumps and controls. The primary marketplace was industrial and primarily to the paper converting industry.

In 1957, Joos Equipment was appointed the manufacturers’ representative for Hoffman Air & Filtration Systems in Syracuse, NY (since bought out by Gardner Denver). At this time, Hoffman expanded their line of multistage centrifugal blowers and exhausters permitting considerable penetration into many markets. Most notably, Joos Equipment began to sell into the water and waste water markets.
