A Forklift History Rooted in Customer Service

In 1960, Joseph Tynan started the Tynan Equipment Company in a small shop off of North Harding Street in Indianapolis. As an early dealer for the Automatic Lift Truck Company -- now known as Yale – Tynan was one of the first material handling equipment companies in Indiana.  From that shop, Joseph started the tradition of superior customer service that we keep today.

In 1979, Tynan expanded and took our forklift sales and service to a new 33,000-square-foot headquarters on the south side of Indianapolis. With the acquisition of Industrial Energy Company in 1989 and IndyLift in 2010, we were able to add additional facilities to serve Lafayette, Columbus, and Terre Haute.  Now we have become one of the largest forklift service providers in Indiana.

Tynan Equipment Is Still Your Go-To Forklift Company In Indianapolis

Today, we’re in our third generation of Tynan ownership and still keep our people-first mindset when it comes to service.  The leadership of Scott Tynan and John Battiston has made the company well-positioned for an ever-changing business climate. By keeping ahead of the trends, we’re the new-generation material handling and equipment company ready to meet new-generation industry challenges.

We're also proud to be a top full-service equipment dealer for Yale. It's a distinction we've enjoyed for decades, and one we earned by establishing unsurpassed sales, an expansive 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.

With our expertise and customer service, Tynan has become one of the most trusted independent material handling equipment companies in Indianapolis and central Indiana. We invite you to see for yourself.
