Who We Are

Voss Equipment provides a total Material Handling Solution from space-saving lift trucks, to integrated storage and distribution systems. Voss Equipment offers the technical and product diversity you need to meet you production and budget requirements.


Voss Equipment was established in the Chicago area by Peter Voss, Sr. in 1934, and we have been serving the material handling needs of Chicagoland ever since. Peter Voss Jr. joined the family business in 1961 after serving three years as a United States Marine Corp officer, and assumed the presidency in 1980. In true family style, his son Peter Voss III (who also served three years in the US Marine Corp) joined the company in 1990. Today Peter Voss Jr. is Voss Equipment’s chairman and chief executive officer, while Peter Voss III became president in 2007.
