Heil® Dealer

Bell Equipment – Michigan and Ohio heil dealer

Bell Equipment was founded in 1951 by Dorman Bell and has been one of Michigan’s most trusted names in refuse equipment, and is the premier municipal and refuse equipment dealer for the states of Michigan and Ohio since that time. Shortly after being founded, a small shop was opened in the city of Detroit, providing sales, service, and parts support.

In 1965, Bell Equipment built a new facility in the city of Troy, Michigan, a suburb north of Detroit. At that time, Dorman’s son, Jim, joined the company. Jim quickly moved up in the service, parts, and sales ranks and eventually became the company’s first Sales Manager.

Upon Dorman Bell’s retirement in 1979, Jim became President and Owner of Bell Equipment and continued the family’s legacy of outstanding products, expertise, and customer service.

Jim’s son, Jimmy, joined the company in 1989 as an Outside Parts Sales Representative. Jimmy bought the company from his father in 2000 and now serves as the company’s President and Sales Manager. This represents the third generation of Bell family ownership in the business. Jimmy’s brother, Dan, joined the company in 1999 and serves as Vice President and Outside Sales Representative.

Bell Equipment’s 20,000-square-foot sales, service, rental, and parts facility is located in Lake Orion, Michigan, and serves as the company’s headquarters. A brand new 13,000-square-foot sales, service, rental, and parts facility was built in 2018 in Gahanna (Columbus), Ohio, to serve the Ohio market.

Today, Bell Equipment employs over thirty-five individuals between its two locations. Bell represents the finest manufacturers in the environmental and municipal equipment industry and is proud to be the Heil garbage truck dealer for the states of Michigan and Ohio.
