Triple D Equipment, Inc. began its life when the DeLong family purchased the business from Smith Feed and Seed Co. in 1990. In the beginning, there were only five employees: a salesperson, a service person, a parts/delivery person, a mechanic, and a bookkeeper.
In 1993, when the operations were moved from Old New York Avenue to the current 5 acre location on Firehouse Road, in DeLand, FL
next to DeLand Chevrolet, the name was officially changed to Triple D Equipment, Inc
Triple D is a family-owned-and-operated equipment business, with the day to day tasks shared by C. Ray DeLong, President, and Larry V. DeLong, Vice President.
When asked what the name Triple D Equipment stands for, Judy DeLong said, “DeLongs in Delightful DeLand.“
A firm believer in the community, the Triple D family supports FFA of Volusia and Flagler counties, the Volusia County Fair, the Volusia Cattleman’s Association, the Farm Bureau, the DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce, the Lake Helen Saddle Club and Rafter V. Productions Bull Riding Events. Our customers come to us from the surrounding areas of Daytona Beach, Deltona, Sanford, Orlando, and Longwood.
Larry V. DeLong said, “There is no other job in this world that can compare to this one, and not even for a million dollars would I ever leave here. Working side by side with my father is priceless, and that makes me the luckiest man alive.“
The DeLong father and son share the philosophy that the employees and the customers are the most important thing about their business.
