Back to Top

In the mid-1990s, Marvin Goldman and Kevin Orlofski, both power transmission specialists with over 40 years of combined experience, recognized the need of New York-area manufacturing firms for a single-source distributor of industrial equipment. Such a distributor would have to feature an extensive inventory of motors, bearings, reducers, conveyor components, variable speed drives, and more. In addition, such a distributor would need to offer its customers reasonable prices, quick delivery, and access to a knowledgeable sales staff. In order to fill this need, Marvin and Kevin founded Total Machine Solutions in 1996.

At the time of the company's establishment, TMS was headquartered in the basement of Marvin's home. Quickly outgrowing this small space, TMS relocated to a facility in centrally located Long Island City, NY, where it resided for several years. During this time period, TMS also opened a branch office in Newark, NJ to better serve its growing customer base in New Jersey.

By 2000, TMS had outgrown its Long Island City facility, due to its ever-growing inventory and customer base. Consequently, TMS relocated its main office to its present location in Plainview, Long Island, NY. Several years later, in 2003, the company relocated its Newark facility to an adjacent larger building to accomodate additional inventory. In 2004, the facility was moved once again, this time to nearby Parsippany. TMS ultimately settled in its Fairfield, NJ home in 2010, where the 12,000 square foot facility should be a suitable base for many years to come.

Today, TMS employs fifteen people in its two locations, with total annual sales approaching $10 million. Despite TMS's continued growth, we have never lost sight of what we set out to do in the beginning -- creating the ideal, single-source distributor of industrial equipment for the New York Metro area. Our ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction has earned us a stellar reputation in the industry over the course of our relatively short existence. Give us a call today, and let us know what we can do to help you!
