Our History

After being founded in the 1930s Burris Equipment Company was established in 1959 under the name Burris Implement Company. At the time the company specialized in farm and agricultural equipment. It was founded by Linden and May Burris.

In 1965 the name was changed to Burris Equipment Company as the company began to realign itself focusing on construction equipment.

In 1968 David C. Zenner, Sr. became the owner and President. Through his efforts, the company experienced considerable growth. After his retirement in 1995, ownership of the company changed and the company now is owned by his children, David C. Zenner, Jr. and his wife Debra L. Zenner, Deborah C. Heinrichs and her husband Barry A. Heinrichs. Together with the help of many valuable employees they are taking Burris Equipment Company into the future.
