The company began as NRI Service & Supply, Inc. in 1972 in Pompano Beach, Florida. NRI was factory authorized to service most major equipment lines in the petroleum equipment industry, including Gilbarco, Veeder Root, Gasboy, Tokheim, Schlumberger, Dresser-Wayne, Red Jacket, VeriFone and many others.
In 1996, our President, Joey Batchelor purchased the company from its founders. Since then, Guardian has opened and maintains fully operational equipment distribution, service and installation outlets in Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, Ft. Myers, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Pensacola, Tallahassee, Southern Georgia and Southern Alabama.
Guardian has increased its customer service capabilities with the purchase of certain assets of Woodruff Equipment, McDonough Equipment, AFG Petroleum and most recently, JMP Solutions.
With one of the most respected groups of management, sales, construction and maintenance professionals, and a large network of highly trained employees, we are able to respond quickly to our rapidly growing client base, including:
- Big-box retailers
