TW Equipment is a family owned and operated company based out of Brackettville, Texas. We value family business as we have been involved with heavy equipment and ranching for four generations. Joe York Sr. ranched in Kinney county and supplemented with a water well drilling business. In the late 1950’s he bought his first dozer and began working the land. He always loved Caterpillar equipment and he passed that love onto his son Joe York Jr. Joe York Jr bought two new D8Hs in that mid-sixties and used them in railroad derailment cleanup and ranch clearing and development. Through the years Joe traded in hundreds of pieces of heavy equipment and partnered in York and Hall based in Uvalde, TX which specialized in heavy construction.
In the late 1980’s, Tim Ward a nephew to Joe York Jr and a grandson of Joe York Sr bought his first dozer a Cat D7F creating TW Equipment LLC and began to take over the family lineage in buying and selling heavy equipment. He credits most of his experience and learning to his Grandfather Joe York Sr whom he thought very highly of. He was an honest man who cared about God and family first. His passion for quality work at a fair price is what we have made a cornerstone at TW Equipment. Today, Tim Ward runs the business with his son Blake Ward. As the years have gone by and the dynamics of the business have changed, we have not lost those foundations. We look forward to proudly serving you.
