Our customers matter to us

MISSION STATEMENT

Through a dedicated sales and quality service team, Industrial Equipment and Specialties (IES) strives to be our customers’ single source supplier for loading dock and material handling needs. IES has been a staple in the Mid-South since 1979 and continues to provide customer-driven solutions.

FOUNDER’S STORY

Jim Amann became the Serco dock line distributor in 1983, taking a small one-man company to new levels. The acquisition of Industrial Equipment & Specialties, which was established in 1979, gave Jim a platform for his vision. Through his integrity and work ethic, IES has provided 40 years of service to the greater Memphis community and to the employees of the company. Today, IES offers sales, service, and installation as a supplier for loading dock needs to the tri-state area with a mix of quality product lines that have a national reach.

Our founder, Jim Amann, loved helping people. When he started IES, he made a point of hiring people who others might not. In doing so, he built a company based on service, relationships, and integrity. As a result, our team continues to serve our clients and community in ways that others choose not to.
