About Us - Great Northern Equipment

Our History

Established over 30 years ago, GNE's beginnings were in a small building in Nisswa, MN. Our base business started with engine sales and expanded to incorporate commercial quality power equipment lines. We have grown from our small company of 8 employees, to our staff today of over 90 talented individuals based out of Rogers, MN. We've been very fortunate to continue to grow and in 2012 we added a branch location in Garland, Texas to better serve the U.S. GNE is poised to continue powering forward and excelling in providing our customers with the best products, prices and customer service around!
