About Griggs Equipment Company

Griggs Equipment Company was founded in 1997 by father and son Tommy and William Griggs in Cullman, Alabama. We began by refurbishing and servicing restaurant equipment. In 1999 the company moved to Birmingham, Alabama and expanded our operations to selling used grocery store fixtures and refrigeration equipment. In 2001 the company returned to Cullman, Alabama and shortly after Tommy Griggs retired and William assumed the supervision of the company operations. We have continued to expand our operations to include working with companies to remove and recycle their commercial refrigeration units through our refrigeration recycling program.
