Meet the staff at T.W. Reiss, Inc.

Tom Reiss - Owner

Tom Reiss

I grew up in Warminster and graduated from William Tennent High School and Middle Bucks Technical School. I started in the equipment rental business in 1977, working part time as a yard person for Wards Rents. I had left Wards for a short time to become parts manager for Amquip Crane Rental, and soon found myself back at Wards Rents. As the years went by I advanced to mechanic, and then to counter person, and finally general manager. I was lucky along the way, due to the people that I worked with. They were willing to spend the time and effort showing me the business, from the mechanics, to the counter, to the back office and business end of things. Many thanks to John, Paul, and Marie who were like a second family to me. I had spent most nights and my days off doing repairs for local landscapers and had a small mower repair shop. During this time I married my wife, Deb, and we were blessed with two boys, Andrew and Daniel. As things would have it, John Ward had an opportunity to sell the business and did so in 1999. So after all those years, we all found ourselves working for Sunbelt Rentals. None of us lasted very long. Having worked for a small family business, this was not for us. So in 2000 T.W. Reiss, Inc. was formed (see company info/about us). I have attended service schools from all manufacturers we represent, and have Bronze and Silver certifications from Stihl. I am a member of the American Rental Association, and also of the occupational advisory committee at the Middle Bucks Institute of Technology. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, restoring my classic mustang, attending local car shows, and target shooting.

I am a life long resident of Richboro, graduated from Council Rock High School in 1979.

I attended all service schools and manufactures update schools for all different brands of outdoor power equipment and small engines, becoming a master service tech. When John Deere bought us out in 2007 I was contacted by fellow business owner Tom Reiss about joining the team at T.W. Reiss, Inc. right down the road from our store. I came aboard in January of 2008. Since then I have become Bronze and Silver factory certified with Stihl, and factory trained in all brands that we currently sell and service. I also have held a Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician rating for over 25 years. My hobbies are sprint car racing and hot rods which my wife of 30 years and I both enjoy.
Andrew Reiss - Mechanic/Counter

Andrew Reiss

I started working for my dad at a young age. I would come down on the weekends and over holiday breaks and assemble new products, stock the shelves, and clean the showroom. Eventually I became involved in small repairs, such fixing recoil starters. As a bit of a hobby and a learning experience, I began to rebuild old mowers and electric hedge trimmers. As I became more familiar with the equipment and the principles of its operation, I started to get more involved in repairs of customer equipment. I became Stihl certified Bronze and Silver while still in high school. I graduated in 2009 and enrolled in Bucks County Community College, which I attended for two years before transferring to Temple University. I graduated Temple in 2013 with honors and a degree in Business Management. Since than I have completed Briggs and Stratton's course to become a Master Service Technician. I have attended service schools from all manufacturers we represent on a regular basis. In my free time I enjoy running, biking, and working on my car.
