AID EQUIPMENT began in 1978. Founded on the idea that all companies must continually upgrade in order to compete in the ever-increasing global economy, AID EQUIPMENT started providing conveyor and other material handling products to industry. Mr. Harris' continued dedication to customer satisfaction, and to maintaining the highest quality service in the industry, allowed AID EQUIPMENT to grow and expand. Today, AID EQUIPMENT has grown beyond its material handling roots to include a logistics and transportation division in A-1 Freight Systems and A-1 Transportation, and a financial consulting division that helps individuals start businesses of their own in CST Financial.

    The founder's methodology remains in place today:
    1. Listen to your customer's needs and wants.
    2. Keep the scope of the project well defined.
    3. Always remain on the leading edge of technology.

In general, our vision is to be one of the world leaders in process improvements. We want to provide premier life-cycle products that can grow with your company, solutions that make your company more competitive, and services for our customers that distinguish us above the competition.
