LAST UPDATED: February 24th, 2021

American Material Handling Inc. was founded in 1976 and currently operates a 13,000 square foot facility as a leader in the materials handling industry. The company has two divisions — material handling and facilities — and operates in the Detroit, Michigan area.

The material handling division of the company provides, installs, and services in-plant materials, such as conveyor systems, ergonomic equipment, and production turntables. The facilities division works with aspects of material handling that interact with your facilities, such as overhead doors, truck door levelers, and dock shelters.

In addition to supplying facilities with materials, American Material Handling also services materials from all manufacturers that it sells products from, and can perform on-site repairs in the Detroit area. This sets the company apart from some of its competitors that provide equipment from multiple manufacturers but don’t necessarily service the equipment when repairs or replacement parts are needed.

  • Industrial carts and dollies

This is helpful for you as the potential client to see what the company has done and might be able to do for your business, based on your individual needs.


The Bad

  • Geographically Limited

Geographically Limited

American Material Handling services only the Detroit and eastern Michigan area, so if you are not a client located in this area, the company cannot be of service to you.


The Bottom Line

American Material Handling has been in business for over 40 years and has developed its processes and services to best meet the needs of its customers. It offers a wide array of facilities products and machines, and services these products as well. If you are in the Detroit area, this company could be a great supplier of equipment for you.
