AM Equipment's New President

As of July 30, 2019, AM Equipment has a new President. We’re proud to announce the promotion of Vice President Sidney Chase to this new role.


Sidney joined AM Equipment in May, 2018. In one short year, she’s made an incredible impact as a Program Manager, overseeing our Manufacturing and Engineering teams. Sidney improved and expanded our use of metrics and accountability, helped us codify systems, and provided knowledgeable guidance within the leadership team.

Owner Ted Powell says, “President Sidney Chase brings a new awakening of growth goals to AM Equipment. The ground rules have changed, but the culture of customer care and employee care has not wavered. Necessary long-term changes are transformational and, frankly, exciting! We are an old reliable friend with fresh offerings that power new relevant products. We are now showing higher economic value to visionary makers globally.”

We are confident Sidney will expertly lead AM Equipment through our next phases of growth and improvement. We’re also grateful her bottomless candy bowl will stay firmly planted on the President’s desk.

Sidney says, “I’m pleased and honored to accept the responsibility of president of AM Equipment. I’m eager to work with our Board of Directors, and the wonderful AME team to continue to drive our business transformation and growth into the next decade.”

Congratulations Sidney!

Happy Thanksgiving from All of Us at AM Equipment!

We’re thankful for our customers! We hope your holiday is warm, happy, and full of good food!


Don’t forget to check your windshield wipers if you’re driving over the holiday weekend. Equally importantly, don’t forget seconds of Great-Aunt Ruth’s sweet potatoes with marshmallows!

P.S. AM Equipment will be closed November 22 and 23 to celebrate Thanksgiving.

NEW PRODUCTS: Marine Windshield Wiper System Kits (+EXTRA SAVINGS)

How does AM Equipment celebrate boating season?  By offering two new Marine Windshield Wiper System Kits at MORE THAN 20% SAVINGS

Radial Kit

Radial Kit

Pantograph Kit

Pantograph Kit

We streamlined options to make ordering easy:  just choose the radial kit or the pantograph kit according to your windshield size and shape.  (Hint:  shorter, wider glass should use radial and square or taller glass should use pantograph.)

Kits include a 212 single speed wiper motor, a wiper arm, and a wiper blade, plus a pantograph adapter for the pantograph kit.

Whether you're replacing an old system that's no longer running up to snuff or your boat never had windshield wipers to begin with, one of our kits can improve your vision on the water, rain or shine... hopefully shine, though.

AM Equipment Has a New Director of Marketing

AM Equipment's new Director of Marketing may look familiar.  That's because Mike Fiske, formerly AM Equipment's Regional Business Development Manager, was appointed to this position effective April 2. 


We're excited to welcome Mike to this new role, where he will oversee Marketing Managers and Specialists as they put forth a unified vision of AM Equipment.

Mike started at AM Equipment in 2009, and his prior experience includes small business ownership as well as Operations and Marketing Manager positions.  Though he originally hails from California, we have adopted him as an honorary Oregonian because he never complains about the rain.  After all, it's good for business!



AM Equipment's New Satellite Location: LaGrange, Indiana

In early May, AM Equipment opened a new distribution and manufacturing center in LaGrange, Indiana.  From this location, we will better serve the Midwest market with speedy shipping and  quick order turnaround times.


We sent Steve, a long-time AM Equipment employee (and native hoosier!) to head up operations in Indiana.  Obviously he was the perfect choice and our outpost is in good hands.

In LaGrange, we are well-positioned to supply windshield wiper systems for various industries such as motorhomes, RVs, agricultural machinery, etc.  We can also easily ship DC gear motors for RV / motorhome stair steps and accessories, bed lift motors for toy haulers and RVs, and practically any other application you can dream up!

AM Equipment Welcomes a New Vice President

AM Equipment is pleased to announce the addition of Sidney Chase as Vice President, effective May 23, 2018.  In this role, Chase will be responsible for project management, overseeing manufacturing and engineering teams.

Chase joins AM Equipment after two stints at HP (formerly Hewlett-Packard) in Boise, ID, and most recently in Corvallis, OR, where she served as Master Business Analyst / Senior Global Delivery Strategy Manager in support of the PageWide digital printing press organization.  She also brings experience from past positions at ATS Automation where she was Director of Operations, Senior Program Manager, and Quality Assurance Manager.  During her time as a NASA Fellow at the University of Idaho, Chase led a team of mechanical engineers researching the design of the traction system for the Mars Rover.

 “We are excited to have Sidney join the AM Equipment team,” said Gary Pickett, President of AM Equipment.  “We have no doubt she will significantly contribute to greater company value.”

“I’m excited and grateful for this new opportunity. I look forward to joining the team at AM Equipment and leveraging my experience to contribute to the success of the business,” said Chase.

AM Equipment Is Bilingual! ¡AM Equipment ya es Bilingue!

We are thrilled to offer our website in Spanish to better serve our Latin American market as well as our other Spanish-speaking customers worldwide.  

Ever since we launched our new website in February, we've been working hard to translate all of the informational text into Spanish.  Because of the technical language, it wasn't as easy as dropping it into Google Translate!

Estamos felices de ofrecer nuestra página web en español para servirle mejor a nuestros clientes en Latino América e igual a otros clientes que hablan español por todo el mundo.

Desde nuestro lanzamiento de nuestra nueva página web en Febrero, hemos trabajado duro para traducir toda la información a español.  Por lo técnico del lenguaje en el mundo de sistema limpiaparabrisas, no era tan fácil como solo poder traducir todo en el programa Google Translate.


Our translation team included Jorge, Alexander, Rafael, and Pavel, all engineers or market managers at AM Equipment with expertise in our product lines.  We're proud of their work on this project, so check it out, starting with the DC Gear Motor Applications page.

If you need assistance in Spanish, contact us via email or give us a call.

Nuestro equipo de traducción incluye a Jorge, Alexander, Rafael, Pavel y todos nuestros ingenieros y gerentes de ventas en AM Equipment con mucha experience en nuestra lineas de productos.  Estamos orgullosos de todo su trabajo en este proyecto, así que denle su visto bueno, empezando con la página de Aplicaciones para los Motorreductores a CD.
