About CES.

The Crudele Story.

It's a family thing... Achille Crudele, President of Crudele Equipment Service started out working for his uncle, servicing forklifts, while putting himself through college. He quickly learned and grasped the fundamentals of the technical side as well as the service side. Taught with work ethics of high standards, hard work, and customer care, Achille stayed in the industry. Having experience working in the trade in the Greater Chicago land area, Achiile found himself creating his own business that ensures all values he believes in. Crudele Equipment comes with over 35 of experience, knowledge and support. Achille has passed this trait down to his son, Nick Crudele, who is now a partner. Make sure you ask about the Crudele Logo...they just may show you their Father & Son tattoo, that was designed by Nick, and is now used as the symbol of Crudele Equipment Services.
