Sewer Equipment Achieves Production Milestone

Sewer Equipment proudly celebrates 82 years of business this year. Our company’s history began in 1941 in a garage in Park Ridge, Illinois, with a simple idea of a tool to unclog kitchen sinks. In the 1970s, the second generation of O’Briens developed several machines in Chadwick, Illinois. The company has continued to evolve developing safe, simple, and reliable solutions for municipalities, plumbers, and industrial contractors from its home in Dixon, Illinois. In June 2023, Sewer Equipment manufactured its 10,000th unit, a Sewer Equipment Co. of America Model 900 ECO combination sewer cleaner truck – a production milestone for the company.

“My grandfather’s philosophy was that the simplicity of the product was critical. A more simple machine was safer, easier to operate, easier to maintain, and thus more productive and cost effective. The combination of this philosophy and our great employees are the reasons for our success. We are humbled to reach this important milestone, 10,000 units produced!” said Dan O’Brien, Third Generation Owner.
