The Original A & K Equipment
Our company was originally called A & K Equipment. The “A” and “K” stand for Al and Ken, the company’s founders. A & K started in a single-room warehouse building in 1988 and expanded to multiple larger locations in MN, and PA.
In the year 2000, A & K Equipment was rebranded as AK Material Handling Systems and has retained this name ever since.
