Aaron Equipment Company, Inc. Inspires Latest Orange County Chopper

November 10, 2008
The newest Orange County Chopper is bringing celebrity status to the process equipment industry, with an innovative custom-bike design inspired by plastics, pharmaceutical, chemical, and food processing machinery. 
       
Created for Aaron Equipment Company, Inc., headquartered in Bensenville, Illinois, the latest custom bike from Orange County Choppers debuted nationally on the TLC hit series, “American Chopper,” on October 16. Aaron is an international buyer, seller, and trader of used and reconditioned process equipment.

Elements of heat exchangers, double-cone V blenders, and sigma blade mixers have never looked as good as they do on the Aaron Chopper. “We hope to inspire innovation throughout our industry and industries we serve, from packaging to renewable fuels,” said Michael Cohen, one of the owners of Aaron Equipment Company, Inc. “The Aaron Chopper is about beautiful functionality and highlights a range of equipment. We’re glad to share its great detail through a complete set of images.” You can access these photos through www.aaronequipment.com/AaronBike.html.    

Teaming up with Orange County Choppers’ famous Teutul family, Paul Sr. and sons Paul Jr. and Mikey, came as a natural fit for Aaron, since both companies develop innovative solutions for its customers and both are family-run.

“Everyone at Aaron is passionate about what we do, just like everyone at Orange County Choppers. That’s one of the main reasons we wanted to build a bike with them,” said Cohen.

The Teutuls drew inspiration for the bike by visiting Aaron’s massive North American headquarters, which has more than 30 acres of used and reconditioned process equipment. Everything from centrifuges to plastic extruders and tanks is available, making up one of the largest inventories of process equipment in the industry. 

“Customers often come in and tell us they’re amazed at what they see. In centrifuges alone, we have more than a thousand pieces of equipment,” said Cohen. The chopper’s custom appearance includes a gas tank designed to look like a pressure vessel, and equipment-inspired looks for the exhaust, spokes, and other bike components. The bright blue and orange of the Aaron logo make up the color scheme.

“We’re constantly innovating to be the best resource for our customers, just as the Teutuls focus on cutting-edge designs that get to the souls of their customers,” said Cohen.

From screw extruders for plastics, to fermenters and complete renewable-fuels plants, Aaron provides process equipment and service to customers in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, chemical, plastics, and other industries. For more information, visit www.aaronequipment.com.
