A Few Highlights of the History of Hager Equipment Company

Hager Equipment Company was founded in the late 1950’s as a manufacturers’ representative company serving the underground coal and iron ore mines and steel mills in Alabama and Tennessee. In 1980 the company was purchased by Black Diamond Coal at which time our President, Keith Ginwright came on board as sales/field service engineer. Shortly after, our Senior Vice President Mark Ginwright joined as Office Manager. In 1990 the Ginwright family purchased the company and have owned and operated it since.

Hager Equipment began to transition from manufacturers’ rep to manufacturer at that time. In the mid 1980’s we were instrumental in design and prototyping of the first diesel rail equipment in Alabama. We knew it well, and our earliest manufacturing was along these lines. In addition, we have since begun to manufacture top quality shuttle cars, electrohydraulic loading machines, and swing tail ‘Hopper’ style loaders. Moreover, we have designed and built many custom machines for industries other than Potash and Coal.

In 1995, Hager Equipment Company moved to our current location in Bessemer, Alabama where we continue designing and manufacturing the finest mining and custom need equipment on the market today.
