Working closely with customers and suppliers has helped Abel Womack become a major Northeast material-handling equipment dealer and distributor.
Operating since 1922, Abel Womack understands that change has always been a constant. Headquartered in Lawrence, Mass, Abel Womack is a dealer, designer and service provider of material-handling equipment. With additional offices in Edgewood, NY, and Wallingford, Conn., the company provides solutions to clients that help them move materials and optimize their warehouses or manufacturing facilities.
Founded as Robert Abel & Co., the company was initially an overhead crane distributor before expanding offerings to include lift trucks, conveying systems, storage and retrieval systems, robots and many other types of automation. In 1998, it acquired Womack Materials Systems Inc. and subsequently rebranded as Abel Womack. Today, its clients include companies in the grocery, retail, apparel, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, parcel delivery and third-party logistics sectors.

This allows them to engage our customers in ways that consistently create positive customer experience.”
