RTL Equipment, Inc. was initially formed as RTL Machinery in 1989, in order to purchase and sell construction equipment in Iowa. The company evolved into RTL Equipment Inc. in 2000, and has grown from a small company selling used equipment into a full-sized regional dealership selling several brands of new equipment including Terex, Kobelco, and Mantis cranes, Doosan construction equipment, Lull forklifts, and XL trailers. The company also deals in all types of used machinery in addition to maintaining a full service and parts operation.
Recently, a major focus of the company has been concerned with wind energy development. RTL Equipment, Inc. currently provides cranes to some of the largest builders of wind towers nationwide.
The company headquarters are currently located in Grimes, IA with additional facilities in Cedar Rapids, IA, and Moline, IL.
