New Lift and Equipment Supplier Enters Market

Workshop Depot, a new company based in Simi Valley, Calif., has dubbed itself a "national, total garage equipment provider," offering everything from lifts to hand tools and other equipment.

"The name ‘Workshop Depot’ is a confirmation of our vision and attitude,” said President Dave Shedlock, an former nine-year veteran with Am-Pac Tire. “We’re on a mission to provide consumers and dealers a wider range of lifting products and quality shop tools and equipment. Listening to the needs of customers the last nine years has helped us to shape our new company’s direction and focus.”

Workshop Depot General Manager Jim Caputa says the company hopes to be a premier provider of shop equipment.

“While other companies are scrambling to source cheaper products, our goal is to provide better products that provide real value," he said. "And we feel strongly that cheap and value are worlds apart when it comes to quality and safety."

Workshop Depot is a supplier of surface mounted vehicle lifts for automotive and commercial applications. Its shop equipment division broadens its product offerings to include wheel service equipment and a variety of specialty shop equipment, including jacks, tool storage, parts washers and more.
