Pearl Equipment History

Pearl is one of the longest standing machinery dealers in the world. 2014 marks our 60th year of service to metal manufacturing industries.

Our reputation of quality equipment and customer service sets us apart as the best source for buying used machinery and the best partner for disposition of surplus equipment assets.

Pearl Equipment has been headquartered in Nashville Tennessee since its beginning in 1954. Nashville is a great place to call home! The Mid-South economy is hungry for manufacturing. Pearl Equipment is a great place to get started if you are looking to plug in a Mid-South manufacturing operation, or just want to get connected with the economic development community.

We do business around the globe, and pride ourselves on our hometown, and southern hospitality. When you are visiting Nashville, be sure to stop by Pearl Equipment, and we will show you around. If you are traveling specifically to Pearl, be sure to check out all the attractions that Nashville and the surrounding area have to offer.

Our mission at Pearl Equipment is to create a positive economic impact on the industrial manufacturing sector, and the communities our customers serve. When we buy a plant, facility, or manufacturing line our first action is to seek out a buyer for that particular operation. Instead of selling a facility piecemeal we first try to market as a going concern, preserving the potential for jobs and tax revenue for the community. Most importantly, we act as a maker of change. When Pearl buys a plant, it creates liquidity in the market; it frees up investment capital, that can then be redeployed into new ventures, and create new jobs, and tax revenue.
