Brookville Equipment Corp. President Conrad retires

Posted on October 8, 2014

Brookville Equipment Corp. President Larry Conrad announced his retirement, effective immediately, on Monday, October 6, 2014, after a career that spans more than 35 years at the Pennsylvania-based manufacturer of underground mining and tunneling equipment, locomotives, and streetcars. Conrad will be replaced as president in the interim by his predecessor, Dalph S. McNeil, who also serves as Chairman of the Board and CEO of Brookville.  

In a speech delivered to all Brookville staff, Conrad said he looks forward to spending more time with his wife, Karen, and his four grandchildren, as well as continuing to enjoy his favorite hobby – farming.

“What has amazed me for many years and still amazes me today is the talent, the pride, the work ethics of the people we have in this company,” Conrad said in the address to his Brookville colleagues. “It’s truly been a pleasure working with each and every one of you, and I wish you all great success in the future.”

Conrad was hired at Brookville in 1979 as a design engineer and played a major role in developing the company’s modern mining equipment product line. Later, Conrad advanced to become VP of operations, managing design-build projects that led the company into the streetcar and locomotive markets, before ultimately succeeding McNeil after his initial retirement as president in 2010.
