June 1978, Larry Gibson and John Thomas started Canfield Equipment. Larry was 23 years old, and John was 60 years old. It was a good mix of youth and experience. We started installing shelving in Dodge vans for AT&T/Western Electric (Ma Bell) as it was known. In 1984 John retired and Larry became sole owner of Canfield. Around that time the Bell companies were broken up and Canfield began to install equipment in Dodge vans on a ship thru basis.
Canfield worked closely with Adrian Steel and installed van shelving and equipment on thousands of vehicles on a national level. In 1990 Canfield was asked if we could install police equipment in Chevy Caprice’s. Canfield installed the equipment in 600 Police vehicles that year. In 2015 Canfield Fleet was opened in Dundalk Maryland. The facility there has Ship thru for the Dodge Promaster City and the Ford Transit Connect and handles vehicles for the east coast market. Today Canfield has 100 employees and over 80,000 square feet under roof and over 12 acres of parking.
