Welcome to Cannon Equipment

Cannon Falls, Minnesota is our home, and it has been for over 50 years. We are proud of our history, and we embrace our role in the local community.

Marmon is a global, diversified organization of manufacturing and service businesses that vary in geography and culture-with operations in big cities and small towns across the globe-and in their products, services, and markets.

This partnership provides extensive value to our customers. Marmon's strong financial position and access to capital enables our business to grow strategically via innovation, internal investment, and acquisition while experiencing the service and agility of a small business.

Why work in a small town? Big things can happen in small towns - plus no traffic!

We are located just off Hwy 52, 30 miles south or Saint Paul or 40 miles north or Rochester. While we may appear small, we are a part of The Marmon Group and Berkshire Hathaway Company
