Dave has been in the foodservice industry for over 45 years, and has been with the same family owned company for 44 of those years. He started in the business in 1973 while still in high school and over the years has been involved in every aspect of the business, from a route salesman to onsite installer. Dave has also worked with customers on restaurant design and layout, rounding out his skills to provide the best service in the industry.

UEQ Corporation (UEQ = Used EQuipment) was established in 1985 solely as a pre-owned foodservice equipment company, with first year sales reported at $180,000. As the company grew, Dave could be found coordinating equipment purchases, refurbishing equipment in the shop, and selling and making deliveries himself. Dave’s love for the business prompted him to purchase UEQ Corporation in July 2002. Unable to continue using the Schweppe name, he renamed the retail end of UEQ Corporation “March Equipment Company,” and helped drive sales to almost 4 million dollars in one year! As the business blossomed, he added new equipment to the UEQ portfolio making UEQ a one stop shop for the foodservice industry. In January of 2015, Dave celebrated 30 years of UEQ Corporation and in 2017, he celebrated 15 years as March Equipment. Today you can find Dave on the road visiting customers with equipment to sell, helping customers in the showroom or pitching in helping his staff!
