Al Stewart loves to communicate. He also loves to help people. And after a five-year stint with State Line Machine, Wilmington, Del., he’s also come to love the construction industry.

As of June 9, 2009, he turned that love into his own business – Stewart’s Parts and Services, based in Newark, Del. Stewart’s territory will include Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware, as well as Internet clients nationwide.

As the sole operator/employee of Stewart’s Parts and Services, Stewart will be selling mufflers, cylinders, buckets, cutting edges, rubber tracks and undercarriage parts for all types of heavy and construction equipment, including pavers, milling machines, dozers, excavators and skid steers.

“I will be evaluating undercarriages and offering free estimates and recommendations on the findings — pins and bushing turns, and track work is available. Also, I’ll be measuring worn out buckets and dozer blades for new bottoms or skins,” Stewart said.

Stewart worked in the banking industry, the education sector and tire sales before a life-changing meeting with State Line Machinery founder Fulton Owensby Sr.

“I started with State Line as the inventory/warehouse manager. This position gave me a great chance to learn the business from the ground floor up, because I was totally new to the industry. Mr. Owensby believed in me and that I could learn it and excel at it all at the same time. The Owensbys taught me the construction side of the job because the sales side and people skills were at the top of my asset list.

“After a few months on the job learning parts and running the warehouse and inventory I began to help out inside with phone orders and helping customers over the counter. And not long after I got my chance, I was told I was in sales now and I was on the road to service our customers door to door.

“In the past three years I have led the sales team at State Line in production as I grew the existing territories and new territories to new levels,” Stewart said.

In addition to everything he learned at State Line Machine, Stewart also participated in a four-day training program, Blackcat U, in Edmonton, Canada.

“We learned about steel, cutting edges, the make up of teeth and the overall process involved,” Stewart said.

Stewart’s Parts and Services currently is being operated from Stewart’s home, with parts being located off-site at a storage facility.
