NMC (Nebraska Machinery) was founded in 1938 by J.J. (Joe) Swanson, a highway engineer for the Wyoming Department of Transportation and W.A. Norris, a Wyoming contractor. The company's first facility was located on West Front Street in North Platte, Nebraska.


In 1987, NMC added 30 counties in southeast Nebraska and the addition of the Lincoln and Doniphan stores with the acquisition of Lincoln Equipment Company. Presently we serve 92 out of 93 (Nebraska) counties and Pottawattamie County in Iowa for our Caterpillar dealership.


NMC opened its first rental store in Omaha, and then expanded the rental store concept across the state by providing a complete line of light construction equipment, aerial lift and other rental intensive products utilized in the building construction industry.


In 2003, NMC constructed a new state-of-the-art corporate headquarters facility in Omaha and recently authorized the construction of a cutting edge dedicated truck shop facility in Lincoln off Interstate 80, which was completed in January 2006.


Today, NMC employs over 600 people. Branch locations in Nebraska are located in Columbus, Doniphan, Lincoln, Norfolk, Omaha, North Platte and Scottsbluff.
