Sullivan’s Awesome Team

Craig Sullivan – Owner

Craig has always been involved in the collision repair industry. He first started out working in body shops doing the frame repairs and painting for about 12 years, and later decided he wanted to open his own business selling collision equipment. In 1991 he created Sullivan’s Equipment in the garage of his house and now it has grown to 10+ employees and a 12,800 square foot building. He has also served as a past IABA President and is still an active Charter Member. Craig enjoys drag racing in his spare time.


Jennifer Murrain has been with Sullivan’s Equipment since 1999.  She is typically the one that you speak to when you call into the office with any needs or concerns.  Customer satisfaction is her top priority among her other daily tasks as Office Manager, also making sure that Sullivan’s Equipment runs like a well-oiled machine.  She has seen many progressive changes during the growth of the company, and is excited to see what the future will bring to Sullivan’s Equipment and its valued customers.

Kyle Gradeless – Sales

Kyle has worked in iron sales for Sullivan’s Equipment since 2012. His customers know him best for his knowledge, flexibility and eagerness to help. He primarily provides customers with Car-O-Liner products but he strives to be a one stop shop for all collision repair equipment needs. He also provides in-depth, individualized training to ensure products are used to the utmost of their ability. The training that he provides offers customers the opportunity to obtain I-Car credits. Kyle prides himself on being helpful to his customers not just a “salesman.”
