About RAW Equipment
Founded in 1967

50 Years of Experience & Still Listening to Our Customers

Richard A. Wallace founded Raw Equipment in 1967, located in Flushing, New York. The Company wholesales construction equipment, materials, accessories, tools, and machinery specifically for the concrete construction industry. Products marketed by the company include concrete forms, inserts and accessories; construction chemicals and grouts; geotextile fabrics; reinforcing materials and bar supports; concrete placement and waterproofing materials; expansion joints; curing materials; mason tools and safety equipment. Although the Company markets a wide variety of products from different manufacturers, RAW Equipment has many, well established distributorships with multiple suppliers. We represent manufacturers of Polydrain® presloped area drain systems used for drainage control since 1985; Sonoco for Sonotube® fibre forms; Dayton Superior for form accessories, bar supports and chemicals; Carlisle for CCW MiraDri/MiraDrain®; Propex geosynthetics for Petrotac®, Petromat® and Pro-Guard®; TenCate for Mirafi® geotextile fabrics; Volclay® waterproofing; Owens Corning for rigid insulation; Sika® construction products; Five Star® for cement and epoxy grouts; Scofield coloring, texturing & specialty systems; Marshalltown, as a master distributor of Finishing Tools; and manufacturers of fibre expansion joints. RAW Equipment introduced a line of light construction equipment in 1990, and has established a small area of the warehouse to showcase the equipment to potential purchasers. We have an exclusive arrangement for delivery services with W Trucking, and deliver goods to our valued customers on a daily basis.
