About Us

Balar Equipment was originally founded in 1984 by Mike Baker and Gene Larsen. (Hence the name “Balar”: “Ba” from Baker and “Lar” from Larsen). In 2002, the assets and trade name “Balar Equipment” were sold to Peter Evans and Mark Spaulding.

We represent approximately 30 different manufacturers across four major product categories: street maintenance, water and sewer, refuse equipment and hydraulic tools. We currently service over 900 customers including the State of Arizona, and every county, city, town and Indian Community in the state of Arizona. We also sell to non-governmental contractors and equipment companies.

Our facility is comprised of a group of three buildings, totaling approximately 10,000 sq. ft. The main office houses administration and sales offices. Our shop has additional offices, a large conference room and five service bays. Our parts warehouse includes an inside parts sales office. In addition, the property has a wash bay, dual height loading dock, fourteen covered parking spaces and over one acre of parking on a fenced yard.
