Carolina Industrial Equipment, Inc. traces its origins to 1961 when Wade Goin added industrial utility vehicles and sweepers to the offerings of his material handling equipment company. This product group became Goin Equipment Company in 1969 and later Carolina Industrial Equipment, Inc. when sold to David Van Covern in 1977.
The company prospered and grew over the following 23 years and again changed ownership in 2000. Shortly thereafter we added municipal maintenance equipment to our product offerings.
In 2007 the firm moved to its present location in a modern 30,000 square foot facility adjacent to the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. We maintain two product divisions, Industrial and Municipal, with employees specializing in each. We are proud to represent the top brand names in each category.
Today our sales territories have grown to include all of North and South Carolina, eastern Tennessee, southern Virginia and portions of Georgia.
Many of our employees have been with us for over 15, 20, and even 30 years, contributing to the stability of the company and a powerful knowledge base in service to our customers.
