Daniel C. Heslep

Picture of Daniel Originally from Florida, Daniel moved to the Boulder area after falling in love with the variety of Colorado outdoor activities. He soon became aware of the dissatisfaction his customers were experiencing and how it jeopardized their profitability and efficiencies. This was the deciding factor that ultimately led him to start his own forklift and equipment service company. He knew he could help impact the sucess of his customers. He selected every one of our technicians based on their integrity, willingness to learn, and ability to teach their skill sets to others. He chose people who shared his business philosophy of always doing the job correctly no matter what it takes because their name was on the line. Danny loves to travel and meet new people.
