Our History

Medley had humble beginnings in 1941, founded by Joe Medley & his wife Francis as the Joe Medley Scale Co. The original location was 609 N Hudson, Oklahoma City. We moved into the Material Handling field over the years and our name was changed to Medley Material Handling Co., which more closely represented our type of business. In 1956, Medley began a long-lasting relationship with Yale, representing the Automatic Lift Truck division which subsequently was merged into the Yale Lift Truck of today.

Medley Equipment Company acquired all assets of Gammon Equipment Company, Inc. on January 2, 2020. Medley will continue operations from all of Gammon branches.
