C & M Equipment was started in 1981 by John Coats and Darwin Mehlbrech. After twenty years of working for aftermarket supply warehouses and manufacturers, John and Darwin opened up shop in John’s garage in Long Beach, California, initially parting out government surplus equipment. They soon moved to their Long Beach warehouse where they remained until 1995. After a few years, John left the business and Darwin continued to do what he did best, aftermarket parts. In the early years, C & M Equipment provided new and used spare parts to repair, rebuild or overhaul all aspects of Clark equipment. As technology advanced and equipment became more sophisticated, C & M Equipment started specializing in Clark heavy equipment transmissions.
In 1995 C & M Equipment moved to San Marcos, California. Originally, the gasket and seal kits were more of an added item to go along with the larger parts. With the high quality of aftermarket Clark gasket kits developed by C & M Equipment, dealers, distributors and repair shops that previously only purchased OEM, started requesting C & M Equipment's aftermarket Clark gasket kits. Since 1995, C & M Equipment has put its emphasis on aftermarket gasket and seal kits for Clark Transmissions and Torque Converters and the related spare parts. Even though we specialize in aftermarket gasket and seal kits, we still maintain inventory and supply other parts for the Clark Equipment. Our gasket and seal kits are shipped and can be found world wide.
In 2005, Darwin retired and C & M Equipment was purchased by Larry Morrison. Darwin and Larry had worked together since 1989. In 2005, C & M Equipment built their own facilities and moved to Fallbrook, California.
In 2009, the decision was made to relocate to the central part of the United States. After looking for the right property with plenty of room to expand, Tarkio, Missouri was chosen for the new location. As of November 1, 2010, we moved to our new location and became C & M Equipment, Inc. Our new facilities are four times the size of the prior location. It has enabled us to increase our inventory, expand our new lines, provide more room for research and development and consolidate some of our manufacturing to on site.
At the request of several of our customers, we have added aftermarket gasket and seal kits for ZF transmissions in off-highway equipment. We now have a large number of ZF gasket and seal kits for the John Deere, Case,Terex, Moxy, Lull, Sky Trak and JCB equipment. We also do a few gasket and seal kits for Funk and Twin Disc. Research and Development is currently working on a gasket and seal kit for the Borg Warner Power Shuttle Transmission for Case 580C, 580E and John Deere 310C. Research and Development continues to add new gasket and seal kits to our product lines.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you might have regarding our aftermarket gasket and seal kits for either ZF or Clark transmissions.
