About the Stewart-Amos Sweeper Company:

Al Amos founded the company in 1938 as a distributor of mineral processing and aggregate production equipment for the limestone quarries located in Pennsylvania. Today, that division has evolved into one of the mid-Atlantic region's premier suppliers of aggregate crushing and conveying equipment.

Bob Stewart started a road building machinery distribution company in 1947. The sales of asphalt pavers, compaction equipment, earthmoving machinery, refuse bodies and street sweepers fueled the growth of this division. Forty years later, the decision was made for the Stewart division to concentrate on providing specialty wear item solutions for the construction and mining industries, as well as to rent a variety of specialized machinery, including street sweepers.

In 2004, the sweeper rental market had enlarged so much as to provide an opportunity to form a separate company to design and manufacture chassis-mounted, mechanical broom street sweeping equipment. Today, that effort has progressed to where the Stewart-Amos Sweeper Company offers a full line of regenerative air and mechanical broom sweepers for the construction, industrial and municipal markets.

Distribution of Stewart-Amos sweepers is through a network of highly qualified dealers, which provide for the local parts and service requirements of the company's customers. More information can be obtained by visiting our website at or by calling 800-482-2302.
