Former NBA center Shawn Bradley founds new business

shawn-bradleyFormer 7’6 NBA center Shawn Bradley has applied his knowledge and skills to co-found a heavy equipment rental company called Mammoth Machinery, located in North Salt Lake, Utah.

Mammoth will rent its equipment in Utah and the Western United States, according to ForConstructionPros.

The company’s office is located in North Salt Lake and they plan to expand within Utah and other states in 2016.

After 12 seasons in the NBA and many years working at a local non-profit organization, Bradley applied his business skills and equipment knowledge to help start Mammoth.

“I grew up working on a ranch in Castledale, Utah and operating equipment every day. Being in the equipment business is right in my wheelhouse,” Bradley said.

In addition to owners Shawn Bradley and Ken Allen, Mammoth added another key member to its ownership team. Adam Goodsell joined Mammoth after spending ten years in equipment sales and rentals in the Salt Lake City area.

“Adam was extremely successful at Wheeler Machinery as one of their top-producing sales representatives. He is totally focused on customer success and is a great addition to our ownership team,” says Bradley.

Bradley played 12 seasons in the NBA, for Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Nets and Dallas Mavericks. Bradley has established himself as a solid shot-blocker, leading the NBA in blocks with 3.4 bpg average in 1996-97. He averaged over 3 blocks per game six times during his career.

Bradley played a total of 832 NBA games, started in 484 of them. He holds career averages of 8.1 ppg, 6.3 rpg and 2.5 bpg in 23.5 mpg.
