Carson Equipment was first established as American Equipment Co Inc. in April, 1974 in NW Portland. In 1984 the business moved to its current location in NE Portland. What started as a pressure washer sales company eventually branched out to include the sale of car washes, wastewater treatment equipment, steam generators, automatic parts washers, tank cleaners, waste oil burning furnaces, and the parts, accessories and cleaning chemicals that go with that equipment. We service all of the equipment that we sell, bringing you over 40 years of service experience and expertise in our product lines. In 2015, Carson purchased American Equipment. Our sales and service coverage extends throughout Oregon, SW Washington and east towards the Tri-Cities.
