About Us


Whether you are looking to buy or sell used & unused industrial processing equipment, you can’t beat the top industry experience and personal service of the fifth-generation, family-owned Arnold Equipment Company. Our long history demonstrates an ongoing commitment to the industrial machinery business. Since 1897, from founder Louis to his great-great-grandson Jon, we’ve worked to keep businesses like yours moving, expanding, and growing.

Based in Twinsburg, Ohio, just southeast of the city of Cleveland, Arnold Equipment works with product manufacturers, OEMs & other resellers worldwide to buy and sell new & used processing equipment.

Over a Century of Industrial Machinery Expertise

Louis Sogolovitz launched his original business in 1897 based on a simple premise: to sell machinery no longer needed by one person or company to another who had use for it. His sons began assisting him with dismantling and recycling used machinery in the 1910s, and the business was ultimately carried forward by son Nathan Sogolovitz. Then, upon marrying Nathan’s daughter, Irving Arnold joined the family enterprise in 1936.

When Irving began to specialize in industrial ventures, he left to create Arnold-Roblin Company so he could focus on demolition & equipment specifically for the chemical industry. His son Nate Arnold joined Arnold Equipment in 1960 and, within a few years, refined the company into its present business model. In November 1994, Jon Arnold joined his father’s business and became a fifth-generation leader in industrial machinery expertise.

Arnold Equipment’s rich heritage proves that we are fully capable of applying new and progressive ideas tempered by age-old honesty and fair dealings for all of our customers and suppliers.
