About Modern Group
Our Employee Owned Business The Modern Group Ltd. traces its beginnings to 1946 when the Modern Handling Equipment Company was formed. The company grew steadily, acquiring dealerships and offering equipment rentals throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. A holding company, Modern Group Ltd., was established in 1979 for all the dealerships and rental companies that this initial venture spawned.Several new product lines were added, including warehouse products, standby power generators, rough terrain forklifts, telehandlers, backhoe loaders, skid steers, excavators, track loaders, wheel loaders, carry deck cranes, snow plows and pushers, and ice control equipment. In 1984 Modern employees purchased shares in the business after it was converted into an ESOP Trust. Today, Modern’s employees think and act like owners…because they are.
