Today, the main facility stands at 45,000 sq. ft. with a 12,000 sq. ft. warehouse. In addition, three branches have been established in Elmira, Binghamton and Albany, New York, expanding Thompson & Johnson’s reach beyond the central area of the state into eastern New York, western Vermont and Massachusetts, and northeastern Pennsylvania.

Thompson & Johnson has more than 1,000 customers, primarily in warehousing, distribution and manufacturing, ranging in size from large, national chains to local businesses.

Thompson & Johnson is approaching $40 million as a full-service material handling company with 126 employees whose average tenure is 11 years. 

Compact construction equipment users can benefit from our over 35 years of experience with Bobcat skid-steer loaders, mini excavators and utility vehicles.
Whether you need new or used forklifts, lift trucks, pallet jacks, service, parts, rental or leasing, we have the knowledge and experience to help you solve your problems.

We feature Toyota forklifts, Crown forklift, CLARK, Sellick, Cushman Vehicles, Hawker batteries, Drexel, Bendi and Hoist at our NY locations not far from areas like Schenectady, Troy, Rotterdam, Corning, Geneva, Plattsburgh and Poughkeepsie.
