From Levan Machine & Truck Equipment: Levan Machine and Truck Equipment (Fleetwood, Pennsylvania) is celebrating their 85th anniversary. Levan Machine and Truck Equipment is a third-generation, family-owned business and is a one-stop, full-service machine shop and custom fabricator for all things related to manufacturing and repair machining, welding and fabrication, and commercial vehicle upfitting.

“Levan Machine and Truck Equipment was started by Walter W. Levan, my grandfather,” said current CEO and President, Brian V. Levan. “In the early years, our machine shop catered to local mushroom farmers and townships, providing machine, general repair, and welding services.”

Since 1936 the machine shop has serviced customers throughout the United States, and Levan Machine and Truck Equipment is a job shop that specializes in custom work. Levan also provides after-market truck equipment, accessories, and parts. In 2010, Levan launched their Commercial Truck Upfit division which services the municipal market throughout Pennsylvania, and the commercial and fleet market throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland.
