With its corporate headquarters in Rochester, NY, ADMAR Construction Equipment & Supplies is the largest independently owned construction equipment sales and rental company in New York state and northern Pennsylvania. Established in 1972, this family business has flourished for over 45 years and is part of the DiMarco Group.
ADMAR Construction Equipment & Supplies is proudly headed up by President Joel DiMarco and Richard DiMarco II, Executive Vice President. According to the company’s website, the DiMarco group has more than a century of construction experience, allowing clients to benefit from generations’ worth of knowledge and old-fashioned work ethic – tailored to modern industry needs. ADMAR offers a wide selection of over 10,000 equipment choices from more than 50 manufacturers. It is an exclusive regional dealer in Kubota Construction Equipment, STIHL, Wacker Neuson and Topcon – for whose equipment it offers free training, lunch included. It also offers training in various other fields, like 3D Machine Control; the Occupational Safety & Health Association’s (OSHA) required Safety Training; and classes in aerial work platform (AWP), which includes training for scissor and boom lifts, amongst others.
The company is so stable in its perpetual growth that it has made it onto the Rochester Chamber of Commerce’s Top 100 list for 27 years. It supplies many different industries with equipment, including the concrete, earth moving and landscaping trades. It does an annual upgrade of its equipment stocks to guarantee customers of only the best and latest designs and technology.
ADMAR Construction Equipment & Supplies prides itself on superior customer service and punctual equipment delivery. Clients name the site and ADMAR ensures that everything from aerial work platforms, rough-terrain forklifts, excavators, compressors, pumps, generators, concrete solutions, and compaction equipment arrives on time. The company also offers both rentals and sales and will even arrange financing.
When the time comes to have equipment serviced, or in the event of repairs being required, ADMAR’s manufacturer-trained service technicians are ready to take care of the work. Its extensive service and parts departments minimize machinery downtime, and as a one-stop construction equipment supplier, ADMAR stocks a vast range of supplies. Its product lines include everything from small hand tools to portable heaters, fork lifts, light towers, boom lifts, excavators, saws, road signs, and high-tech survey and positioning equipment.
The company was founded by two experienced contractors. The brothers John DiMarco, Sr. and Richard DiMarco, Sr. built ADMAR Construction Equipment & Supplies from a fledgling enterprise in a small garage to what has now become the largest independently owned provider of construction equipment and supplies throughout New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Its outlets stretch from Binghamton, Albany, Buffalo, Canandaigua and Syracuse, NY to Erie and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
The company is also an official and very proud supplier of construction equipment to the Buffalo Bills. ADMAR Construction Equipment & Supplies provided equipment for its Ralph Wilson Stadium renovation in Buffalo and for the construction of its training camp at St. John Fisher College in Rochester.
At the time of publishing last year, Rochester Chamber’s Top 100 website noted that ADMAR’s staff counted a healthy 278 in total, of which 90 were based locally. The company holds military applicants in high regard, and takes pride in recruiting qualified veterans. It values the leadership skills, teamwork capabilities, diversity and disciplined work ethic instilled in the military and welcomes all eligible candidates – even those who are transitioning from active duty and seeking to settle in a new career. ADMAR’s website has a dedicated section in which it guides candidates through the application process. It offers tips on how to go about writing a winning résumé and how to handle the interview. It even has a Military Skills Translator link to support applicants in translating military terms.
The company also welcomes college graduates and genuinely encourages diversity within its ranks. Some of its benefits include health insurance, dental/vision coverage, 401(k) plans, paid holidays and vacation, and myriad other perks.
ADMAR Construction Equipment & Supplies is a member of a host of professional affiliations locally and in the state, including the Associated Builders and Contractors, the Association of General Contractors (AGC) and the NYS Association of Professional Land Surveyors. It is also instrumental in assisting customers in understanding and getting equipped for compliance with OSHA’s respirable crystalline silica standard for construction, which came into being on 27 September 2017. The standard aims to minimize human exposure to this harmful chemical and ADMAR is there to help employers protect construction staff from this potentially debilitating substance.
The company is as generous with its donations as it is with its time. The DiMarco family has been a part of the greater Rochester community for over 100 years, and as proud members of this community, regularly contributes to local charities and cultural events. There are few things in business that beat such generosity of spirit.
And the dynamic team is as visible within its industry as it is within its community. ADMAR has a busy year ahead with numerous trade shows scheduled for 2018. This month, clients and potential clients can look forward to seeing the company represented at Dig Safely New York and the Rochester Home & Garden Show. It is also hosting the ADMAR Wilkes-Barre Equipment Expo.
One of its top concepts, which will no doubt boost future sales significantly, is the company’s OnSite™ service. With this protection in place, the company dispatches technicians and other service personnel to clients in need of assistance. Technicians and other support staff travel to any location at any time of day to ensure that ADMAR clients’ operations remain as productive and as profitable as possible. OnSite™ teams perform all services required – from routine maintenance to sophisticated repairs. With such high-level security and quality service built into its equipment sales, ADMAR Construction Equipment & Supplies is certainly set to soar in the year ahead.
