Albany has construction machinery and equipment manufacturers and/wholesalers available. Construction activities require a number of different machinery and equipment. They can be hand tools, or highly complex, mechanized machines. It makes sense to buy some of these equipment, especially if there are a number of projects in the pipeline. They are manufactured in such outfits. They may also be sold at wholesale rates in Albany, which are considerably lower than retail rates. Machinery that can be manufactured and/or include boring machine, mortar mixers, dumpers, soil compactors, concrete block machine, paver machine, rotary cutter, earth moving machine, forklifts, needle vibrator, excavators, floor polishing machines, etc. These tools are usually standardized and certified by independent agencies. They are usually quite expensive. Wholesalers may also offer distribution services.
