About Us

Montgomery Shop Equipment is a sales agency and supplier of automotive machine tools and supplies in Northern California and Western Nevada. The company was established in the spring of 1990 under the ownership of Jim Montgomery. The company’s goal is simple -- supply high quality automotive machine tools and supplies to the engine rebuilding industry and provide unequalled after sales follow-up for warranty and post warranty service. Years of field experience in the trade and in the sales arena coupled with a strong interest in new technologies are, we feel, the only way to achieve this goal. We are uniquely qualified to offer our customers this high level of service.

Jim was trained in the U.S. Navy as a general machinist and worked daily at the craft for his entire four year “hitch”. Following completion of a Bachelor’s Degree he spent the next seven years working as an automotive machinist. Positions included general automotive machine as well as combination responsibilities of general and automotive machine in a racing shop environment.

Jim’s sales experience began in 1985 working in Northern California for the “Crowder-Sullivan Company”, a respected automotive machine tool and supply Agency. Long term relationships with manufacturers and suppliers began here and continue to this day. We are particularly proud of the twenty year relationship with Goodson Shop Supplies and the seventeen year term with AXE Equipment Mfg.

More recently, we’ve formed a sales relationship with Hopper Shop Equipment of Stanton, CA. Hopper Shop Equipment is a long established and respected automotive machine tool sales agency with territories in California, Southern Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona. This new relationship allows us to represent Rottler Mfg., Hines Industries and Stuska Dynamometer in Northern California and further serves to strengthen our offerings and is clearly in keeping with our stated company goal.

In closing it is important to say that we’re proud of our long history, proud of our accomplishments, take a serious interest our industry and are fortunate to have “YOU” as a customer.
