About Our Company

Since 1975, Bode Equipment Company has been serving New England with material handling systems and overhead door/loading dock solutions. Acquired by the Steve Fawcett and his family in 1985, Bode has been a family-owned and operated business for 30 years. During Steve’s tenure, Bode Equipment Company focused on working with end-users solving their material handling needs and contractors who were in need of overhead door/loading dock solutions.

In 2004, the company expanded from equipment sales to add installation and service capabilities.  Today, our Service Department installs and repairs the equipment we provide, as well as existing systems in client facilities. We focus on rapid response to service, quality installations and complete customer satisfaction. In recent years, our service capabilities have extended to preventative maintenance programs, welding/fabrication, electrical, concrete and site needs that provide ongoing facility enhancements to our clients.

In 2010, Bode acquired Massachusetts material handling leader Service Handling Equipment Company (SHECO) located in Marlborough, Massachusetts. Established in 1956, SHECO offered many of the same capabilities as Bode Equipment Company, with an extended reach to southern New England.  As a result of the acquisition, Bode Equipment Company now services the northern New England states (NH, VT and ME) while our SHECO division concentrates in the southern New England area (MA, RI and CT).

Over the last 39 years, we have built a reputation as New England’s leading providers of material handling and storage solutions, and it is not something we take lightly. Our entire team, which includes 2nd generation family members and team members who have become extended family, is fully dedicated to providing a knowledgeable and friendly experience that you’ll not only enjoy working with, but can depend on for any material handling need. Our consultative approach, caring nature and desire to earn your business, will have you ready to call our team each and every time you need material handling help.

Together, Bode Equipment Company and Service Handling Equipment Company have become one of the dominant companies in the New England market offering layout, design, sales, installation and service. We are proud, active members of Material Handling Dealers Association (MHEDA), providing our team with access to the best training and technological advancements in the industry. Also members of ISNetworld, our safety program is rated one of the best in New England.

“Over my 22 years of work in this industry, this is one of the best projects I’ve had the pleasure of be involved in. The constant communication and the desire to keep us informed throughout the entire process along with the flexibility to accommodate change orders while still keeping our project on schedule is why I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Bode again and again.”
