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.
