A History of Excellence and Growth

Welcome to Highway Equipment Company of New Jersey, formerly Harter Equipment. 

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.

Through the years, Highway Equipment has grown steadily. With the acquisition of Harter Equipment, on July 1, 2019, we now have 7 locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, and North Carolina including Machinery Rental (MRC), a division of Highway Equipment, and now New Jersey.  Continued expansion is part of our overall strategy.

Highway Equipment Company is a one of America’s leading sales, rental, parts and service providers of highway, construction, oil and gas, mining, quarry and industrial material-handling equipment. Highway Equipment’s real advantages stem from our dedicated people, a long history of industry experience, and the breadth of products and services we offer.
