As time passed, Aaron’s success and ever expanding inventory has caused the company to relocate a number of times to larger and larger facilities.

Aaron also understands the logistics of working in a global marketplace and has the know how to complete transactions in a concise and practical manner.



In 2009, Aaron Equipment Company had a plan to expand it's packaging department due to the booming Packaging Industry. They began looking at successful used packaging equipment dealers to emulate and found Kendell Equipment owned by K.C. Christensen. K.C. had more than 20 years of experience in the Packaging Industry and has personally been involved in over 10,000 machinery projects, toured hundreds of manufacturing facilities, and provided thousands of equipment solutions to his customers.

By combing the best qualities of these two companies, Aaron Kendell Packaging Equipment (AEK) was formed. Today, Aaron Equipment Company and Aaron Kendell Packaging Equipment have one common goal of providing the highest quality packaging equipment with the most dependable service at competitive prices.
