A Brief History of Mendenhall Equipment Company

1958 Lee B. Mendenhall founded Mendenhall Equipment. Lee had a small dry cleaning business named "University Cleaners" in Provo, Utah, where he ran Mendenhall Equipment Company.
1972 Mendenhall Equipment became incorporated.
1976 Lee sold Mendenhall Equipment to Dave Call and Dana Jeppson who decided to move the business to Bountiful, Utah, where it stayed until the spring of 1983.
1983 Mendenhall Equipment moved to Centerville, Utah, where they grew to be one of the largest Commercial Laundry & Dry Cleaning suppliers in the West.

At the Centerville location the company went through its share of interesting situations. Right from the start, Mendenhall was lucky to escape the floods of 1983. Mendenhall had also been shot at from a passing car on the freeway. The bullet went through their wall, over the secretary's desk, and into the office supply closet where it was later discovered lodged into a roll of recepit ribbon used on the typical adding machine. This fortunately happened over a weekend when no one was in the building.
1998 Dave Call's interest in Mendenhall Equipment Co. was purchased by Dana Jeppson and Neil Moyes. The company continued to provide top quality laundry and dry cleaning equipment to a wide range of businesses ranging from the small single top load washer to the large automated projects.
2004 In the spring of 2004 Dana and Neil moved Mendenhall Equipment to a new buliding located in North Salt Lake, Utah. Menhenhall simply outgrew the old building and needed to have more space in order to better serve their customers.
1958 - present Mendenhall Equipment Company is committed to providing the highest quality equipment, service and parts.
