History of Tep's Power Equipment
Back in 1972, Myron Tepper had a backyard repair shop behind his small home in Millville, NJ. He was married to his wife Jane and had three children (Paul, Ken & Melissa) and was looking for a way to supplement his income with something that he loved. He soon became well known in Millville and became the go to guy for small engine repairs.
A few years later Myron opened up a small shop in downtown Millville, NJ. He named the business Tep's Power Equipment. Tep was his nickname which was derived from his last name of Tepper. Soon his wife and two sons were helping him out and his business started to grow.
Growing out of his small space, Myron re-located a few streets over on a nice corner lot between two busy streets. He had a small show room with a back room for parts and a shop area for repairs. By this time his wife and two sons were working full time and business took off.
Looking to expand his store and product lines, the store was finally move to the High Street location in Millville, which is over 6000 square feet. His daughter Melissa eventually joined the business and it is now our present location, where we have a great size showroom, much needed counter space, a large parts room to accommodate hundreds of parts as well as a large repair shop area and yard.
Unfortunately, Jane passed away in 2001 and Myron in 2015. Without their hard work, Tep's would not be what it is today. Paul, Ken & Melissa are carrying on the Tep's legacy and own and run the store currently.
Tep's mainly sells Husqvarna, Honda & Stihl equipment, but stocks many brands of parts such as AYP/Sears, Briggs & Stratton, Echo, Husqvarna, Honda, Kawasaki, Kohler, MTD, Murray, Onan, Poulon, Snowex, Stihl, Tecumseh, Troy Built, Walbro, Wisconsin, Zama and much more!
We have a second to none repair department. Myron's two sons Paul & Ken are head mechanics and are factory trained. They bring many years of expertise in the power equipment industry.
Tep's also rent's equipment to homeowners, landscapers and contractor's. We are well known for keeping our equipment well maintained and clean!
In the new year, we are looking to expand our business through the internet offering parts sales to a broader base of customers.
We look forward to serving both our new and old customers!
