While working together at Ingersoll Rand, Frank Gallo and Bill Bochicchio knew they wanted to start their own company. With a background in drilling and blasting Frank and Bill purchased a GMC dealership in Dunmore, PA that sold Detroit, Cummins and Caterpillar engines, Dresser LeRoi compressors and drills, and Driltec rotary drills.

In 1983, Bill and Frank expanded their company when they purchased a local John Deere dealership that represented John Deere in the Construction and Forestry industries and named it Five Star Equipment. Over the years, Five Star Equipment acquired other John Deere dealerships and has grown into its current eight locations in NY and PA.

In 2016, Bill Farrell joined Five Star Equipment, Inc. as Chief Executive Officer. Bill is an accomplished, customer-focused leader with a strong track record of success. Bill and the leadership team are building on the history of long-standing relationships with customers to ensure that Five Star Equipment is the first choice of our customer's equipment needs for many years to come. 

From the beginning, the Five Star Equipment name represented a dedicated team of professionals who partnered with the Construction and Forestry communities. Today, Five Star Equipment continues this commitment and is focused on its Vision and Mission:
