EQI Celebrates 20 Years of Growth and Partnership

Please join us in celebrating 20 years of incredible growth and innovation for EQI. What began as a one-man sourcing venture in Spring Lake, Michigan, in 2004 has transformed into a global metal products powerhouse. With over 375 dedicated associates spanning three continents, we’ve built an expansive international presence fueled by our relentless drive to supply line-ready metal components to many of the world’s most demanding customers.


Initially, EQI focused on gray iron counterweights for forklift trucks and other large mobile equipment. Over the next decade, we swiftly penetrated additional construction, forestry, and CNC machine tool manufacturing markets and expanded our sourcing to China and India. Today, we have become one of the largest diversified metal component companies importers in the US, with multiple manufacturing and service locations globally.

As we expand our industry impact and build exceptional teams, we will remain relentlessly focused on partnering with our customers to achieve long-term success. At EQI, we are committed to solving complex supply chain problems and providing value-add services, tailored solutions, and cost-effective quality. This commitment was our north star during our first 20 years, and it will continue to guide our efforts in the future.

Our 20-year milestone is a testament to the passion and tenacity of our people, and we’d like to thank all the EQI employees and customers who’ve made our success possible over the years. Our true differentiator is the expertise of our people and supplier partners, which, in turn, drives customer relationships built on partnership and trust. We’re grateful to everyone who has contributed to our growth and are excited to see what the future holds!
