Southern Field Maintenance, LLC was established in the summer of 1984 as a diesel engine repair facility. Over the years SFM has taken on different faces moving from general diesel repair to tractor/trailer repair and forklift sales, rental, and service.
SFM moved to a larger facility in 1990 and there we began our transformation from general diesel repair to tractor/trailer repair and lift truck refurbishing. Through steady growth SFM now has two distinct areas of expertise: Tractor/Trailers & Forklifts.
We are a full service tractor/trailer service center with computer diagnostic capabilities; 24 hour on call technicians with road side service makes SFM your choice in Tractor/Trailer repair. We can handle anything from an oil change to an overhaul.
Material handling in most applications can be back breaking work if not done properly. SFM has the material handling equipment to move your product from the warehouse to the job site. Handling top brands such as Tailift, Master Craft, Blue Giant and Navigator we have the forklift to fit your needs. Whether you need electric, LPG, diesel, cushion, pneumatic, or all terrain we have the forklifts for sale, rent or lease.
Our service department is second to none with the ability to work on any make of forklift you may have. With technicians that can be dispatched to your location or have your unit picked up with our haul truck we can meet your service and rental needs.
In 2005, the purchase of 12 acres and a larger facility ensured our continued growth in South Texas.
December of 2009 brought many unknowns to us. Our facility caught fire and was completely destroyed. But through this tragedy we were able rebuild a larger state of the art facility that is capable of serving our customers more effectively.
