About Dawson-Macdonald Co., Inc.
Serving the Surface Preparation Industry for Over 85 Years
Dawson-Macdonald Co., Inc. is the oldest and largest developer and distributor of surface preparation equipment in the northeast, with products composed primarily of equipment for abrasive blasting, shot peening, and dust/mist/fume collection. Originally founded in 1925 by Charles Dawson as the Dawson Supply Co., the company's roots were formed serving the monument (i.e. tombstone) industry. On February 27, 1928 Mr. Dawson merged with Messrs. Everett Macdonald and Charles Bates to form, what remains today, Dawson-Macdonald Co.
Dawson-Macdonald operates out of a 20,000 sq.ft. office/warehouse facility in its own 70,000 sq.ft. building complex in Wilmington, Massachusetts, which is operated and managed by itself through a wholly-owned subsidiary, Dawson-Macdonald Realty Trust. Dawson-Macdonald Co. has 15 employees, including four dedicated salespersons covering all six New England states, eastern New York State, the New York City metropolitan area (including Long Island), and northern New Jersey. Additionally, two inside salespersons complement the sales force. The company represents approximately 200 manufacturers of equipment and supplies, and sells to approximately 1,000 individual customer accounts. The company maintains a fleet of rental equipment, has a full-function mobile Service Department (providing repair, service, preventive maintenance, warranty support, installation, and training services), a complete demo / product test lab, and a fully stocked warehouse of equipment, parts, abrasives, safety equipment, ancillary items, and used equipment.
The company serves a wide array of customers in a broad range of markets, including commercial and government applications, manufacturers (from small to large), contractors (from small to large), federal and state agencies, municipalities, schools, and utility companies, among others.
