“Our primary mission is to be the premier supplier of quality products and superior services in the materials handling industry achieving mutually rewarding relationships with our customers and vendors while providing our associates with a safe, secure and rewarding work environment.”

Southeast Industrial Equipment is a second-generation, family-owned operation. In 1994, with twenty years’ experience in the material handling equipment business and three years as president of SIE under his belt, CEO Steve Thorne purchased the company from JM Family Enterprises, Inc. In 2006, after several successful years of growth, Steve turned the company over to his son and daughter Cory Thorne and BJ Thorne, President and Vice President respectively. Under Cory’s leadership, SIE has continued to evolve as the premier supplier of quality equipment and products and superior services in the materials handling industry. With an experienced management team and strong regional leadership firmly in place at each dealership, Southeast Industrial Equipment is perfectly positioned to satisfy the forklift, heavy equipment, material handling, and warehouse needs of customers both now and well into the future.
