Tynan Equipment Company was founded in 1960 by Mr. Joseph B. Tynan on North Harding Street in Indianapolis, Indiana. We were an early dealer for the Automatic Lift Truck Company, one of the first forklift companies in Indiana. You know them today as Yale.

In 1979, success took Tynan Equipment and its forklift sales and service to a new 33,000-square-foot headquarters on the south side of Indianapolis. From here, we continued to grow with the acquisitions of Industrial Energy Company in 1989 & IndyLift in 2010, while also adding facilities in Lafayette, Columbus and Terre Haute.

We're proud to be one of Yale’s top full-service dealers. It's a distinction we've enjoyed for decades, and one we earned by establishing market share, a rental fleet inventory, and a reputation for fairness, hard work and integrity that is second to none among forklift dealers not just in Indiana, but in the entire nation.

Today, led by John and Mike Tynan – and with an innovation and service outlook that has the company well positioned for an ever-changing business climate – Tynan is ready, willing and able meet your needs. With an experienced management team leading the way, Tynan is a new-generation material handling and equipment company ready to meet new-generation industry challenges.
