A History of Excellence and Growth

A family-owned and operated business from Day 1, Highway Equipment was founded in 1933 by DL Reynolds and JF Docherty in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh. Today, we are still owned and operated by the Reynolds family, with Thomas H. Reynolds serving as President.
