Five Star Equipment
Bill Bochicchio and Frank Gallo purchased Drake Diesel, a certified General Motors dealership, in 1980 and what would become Five Star Equipment Inc. began.
Drake Diesel also sold and serviced various brands of commercial diesel engines, including Detroit Diesel, Caterpillar and Cummins in addition to Dresser-LeRoy drills and compressors. A local John Deere dealership was purchased in 1983, and Five Star Equipment — a name intended to state the new company’s commitment to quality, integrity and overall excellence — was born.
