We customize environmental equipment solutions for every situation by putting our customer’s needs first. Standard’s greatest ability is dependability.

Incorporated in 1969 by Thomas Donlon, Sr., Standard Equipment Company’s initial goal was to sell Elgin Street Sweepers and Leach Refuse Bodies to the City of Chicago.  Within ten years, Standard Equipment Company was the City of Chicago’s preferred vendor for street sweepers and refuse trucks, carrying 80% of the market share and growing.  This was accomplished by having a superior level of support in our Parts and Service Departments, delivering over 95% uptime. 

Sales sold the first order and service sold from then on.  The formula is still valid today.

For 50 years Standard Equipment Company was located in Chicago.  In June 2020 we moved to 625 S. IL Route 83, Elmhurst Illinois.  The new location, near 4 major interstates, is proving much more convenient for our customers. 

After 50 years in service we are still family owned by Jerry, Dave, and Joe Donlon. 

Standard Equipment Company currently represents Elgin Street Sweepers, Vactor Sewer Cleaners, Truvac Hydro Excavators, Envirosight Sewer Inspection Systems, Autocar Trucks, and New Way Refuse Trucks to name a few.
