Prescott Heald & Son has been passed down generation to generation over the past 100 years. Started by Prescott Heald himself, it began as a small Omaha business in the Old Market area. Prescott first sold Nutting trucks and two-wheeled carts for fruits and vegetables to local vendors.
Prescotts Son, John Heald (known as Jack), joined his father after retiring from the Army as a Major and serving in World War II. He purchased casters from Offutt Air Force Base that were no longer needed after the war. He also took the company to it's next step by adding the racking and shelving lines.
In 1979, Dave Heald, Jack's son, joined the family business and fully took over the company when his father retired in 1982. Jack had believed in selling a "little bit of everything". Dave took the business from "everything" and localized it into the pallet rack and shelving business that it is today to stay competitive. In 2012, Dave purchased Rivmax Boltless Shelving and even furthered the vision of Prescott Heald & Son, and now manufacturing Rivmax.
