Located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, Special Fleet Service opened their doors as equipment upfitters in 1983, followed closely by a tool and safety division in 1984. Since then, we’ve worked diligently to supply our customers with superior products while delivering exceptional customer service but also innovative new ideas and concepts to make their day-to-day operations better, and most importantly, safer.


Our Equipment Division provides a complete line of equipment and service for railroads, public utilities, electrical cooperatives, transportation companies, line construction companies and general contractors. Whether it’s starting with a bare chassis to build a state-of-the-art hy-rail vehicle, completing crane certifications or simply installing van interiors, SFS has decades of experience. Our service to some of the top Class I railroads in North America has been publicly recognized multiple years in a row.


Our Tool and Safety Division houses the only commercial lineman’s protective rubber testing facility in Virginia and is among the largest Salisbury distributors in the United States. We also complete a wide range of tool repairs in-house as well as customized grounds and jumpers and on-location testing. Our sales representatives work closely with our customers to supply them with the most effective tools on the market as well as personalized and diligent service. We are proudly a NAIL accredited laboratory.

From our centralized location on the East Coast, we proudly serve a superior list of customers; we understand their business demands and know they need a supplier who is as dependable and efficient as they are. We work hard to get what they need into their capable hands so they can complete the job quickly, and safely.
