The foundation for what would become Wood Equipment Company began in 1945 when Tom O’Neill opened O’Neill Pump and Engineering, a manufacturers’ representative for a number of pump manufacturers, in Richmond, Virginia.
With Mr. O’Neill’s retirement in 1965, Wyatt Wood, who joined the company in 1949 as its third employee, became President and changed the company's name to Wood Equipment Company (WEC) to better reflect the diversity of products and services being offered.
Today, Wood Equipment Company continues its pursuit of excellence as an authorized distributor for a wide variety of industry leaders in the pump, drives, mixing, motor, and control fields. Our long history has earned us application experience across a diverse spectrum in the industrial, municipal, and commercial market groups.
