About

The story of Goldman Equipment L.L.C. begins in 1946 when, after leaving military service, Harry Goldman, Jr. recognized the local farmers in the Tensas Parish area’s need for a readily available local equipment supplier. In an effort to fill that need, he established the first Goldman Equipment. store in Waterproof, Louisiana enabling the area farmers to finally put their mules to pasture and start using more efficient mechanized farming equipment. As yields increased in the area, so did Goldman Equipment. In the 70-plus years since it’s establishment the company has been able to incorporate other equipment dealerships as well as build new locations, swelling the company’s customer base dramatically and resulting in a business footprint that stretches throughout northern and central Louisiana, spilling over into neighboring states. This has been mutually beneficial to the surrounding farmers, commercial customers, residential land owners, small ag, and governmental customers as well as to the company itself. Goldman Equipment's success is built on a strong, stable Service, Parts, and Equipment resource that area customers can feel comfortable relying upon to be there day-to-day as a solid staple in their community for their business and personal needs.

While always holding fast to Mr. Harry Goldman’s ideals and vision he had when opening the doors of that first store, Goldman Equipment has and continues to blaze a trail into the future, keeping our customers at the forefront of technological advances in farming and pooling ever more resources to better fit our customer’s needs. 

In 2021 Goldman expanded into the marine business. You can expect the same quality service that Goldman has provided its agricultural clients for 70 years.
