Developing innovative programs and business solutions to help our customers grow and prosper.

Monroe Equipment

Since our inception over 50 years ago, Monroe Equipment has prided itself on delivering not only quality service, but also the best value in heating and cooling products. This philosophy, combined with our belief that our products should be and are sold exclusively through professional heating and cooling contractors, has helped us grow into an industry leader throughout Wisconsin.

As many of our satisfied customers have come to know, Monroe Equipment offers not only products and services you can depend on, but also a partnership, developing innovative programs and business solutions to help our customer grow and prosper.

Design and Engineering

Monroe Equipment’s engineering department is a mix of youthful vision and experienced insight. We have built this department on a strong base of knowledge and experience. We provide over 125 years of engineering design and product experience. Whether large or small, there is no project that we can’t handle.

Unlike many design firms, Monroe Equipment does not over-engineer or over-budget designs. Our mission is to provide every one of our customers with a practical, cost effective and efficient system that meets the end user’s needs. We achieve this by including our customers and their insights in every aspect of the design from conception to state approved plans, by offering a range of services from heat losses to on-site engineering.

If there is any way that we can help make your job easier, please let us know. From multi-family housing and office buildings to medical facilities and industrial manufacturing plants, we would be happy to help. Our best reward is complete customer satisfaction.

Parts

At Monroe Equipment, we realize that your time is valuable. Every hour you spend waiting on a wholesaler to get a crucial part is an hour that you are losing profits. Our goal is to meet your needs quickly and efficiently. Our knowledgeable, well-trained parts staff is up to the challenge with a large inventory of parts, to service not only the products we sell, but also those sold by many of the other wholesalers.

Sales

Our Dealer Development Managers (DDM) specialize in working FOR our customers rather than simply selling something TO them. This effort is backed by Monroe Equipment’s management philosophy of empowerment, which states, “We will back whatever decision you deem appropriate as long as it is in the best interest of the Customer”.

Through on-going training, each DDM is adept in the latest methods of HVAC and business skills. The strategic location of each DDM allows for full service to any HVAC contractor throughout the entire state of Wisconsin.

Technical Support / Training

Is it better to train an employee and have them leave, or to not train that employee and have them stay? Monroe Equipment considers the issue of training important enough to have a full time trainer on staff. By combining the knowledge of an experienced field service tech and employing professional business trainers, we provide our dealers with a vast variety of opportunities to improve the skill level of their employees, as well as management skills aimed at improving the profitability of their company.

Regardless of the amount of training any contractor provides to their employees, a situation may arise that requires additional technical help. While most manufacturers have technical support staff at the factory, Monroe Equipment goes a step beyond with trained support help available in our office by phone or on site if necessary.

Warehouse & Shipping

The right product at the right time delivered in perfect condition. With over 20,000 different items and almost 200,000 total parts, pieces and units in stock, it is not always easy to accomplish this, but a dedicated staff of warehouse and delivery personnel work to insure that our customers are not disappointed. Combining a fleet of company owned delivery vehicles and partnering with a regional freight company enables us to deliver anywhere in the state within 24 hours.

Shop deliveries, jobsite deliveries, coordination with crane lifts and special instructions are just part of our everyday service.

Our delivery team treats our customers and products with so much respect that they are often referred to by our customers as “equipment chauffeurs”.
