About Us

family ownedMartin Equipment’s commitment to exceptional service was formed with the establishment of Sam F. Martin Implement in Roanoke Illinois in 1926. That unflinching commitment continued for the next three decades as a prosperous and growing business, serving the domestic marketplace. We didn’t know it then, but we were building a legacy.

Then with the historic developments in earthmoving and forestry equipment, a new era began accompanied by tremendous potential for growth. Those new growth opportunities resulted in the formation of Martin Equipment of Illinois, Inc. in 1981. As an authorized John Deere Industrial (Construction, Utility, Forestry) dealership, we’ve lived up to our heritage by taking sales and service to a new higher level.

Today with 250 employees and nine locations we are dedicated to your success with a variety of equipment, parts and of course legendary support in the service area. But Legendary Support doesn’t rest on its laurels.

With the MartinMax & MartinCare Programs, a new standard has been set. Repair cost, scheduled maintenance, oil scan analysis and cost per hour guarantee offer strengthened new equipment purchases and leases.

You can find us in Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri and with over 9 decades of success, our legacy is formed. It’s not complicated. Anyone can sell equipment. It takes integrity to deliver service that’s as strong as the brands we offer. That in turn, has fueled our growth, now nine locations strong because we simply refuse to let you down.
