Founded in 1964, Davis Equipment Corporation is in its 50th year of business. Company management says the Johnston, Iowa-based company has a reputation of  meeting and exceeding customer expectations of providing quality equipment, parts and service because of a continuous quality team of  employees.

The company was founded by Roger Davis, and since 1985, has been under the leadership of Roger’s son, Paul Davis. Zach Davis, Paul’s oldest of three sons, is the third-generation of the Davis family to be working for the company, and is the sales manager for one of Davis’ affiliate companies.

During Paul’s tenure, the company has expanded geographically and core competencies in the ag industry. Davis Equipment Companies operate and do business as FEI East, Turfwerks and Davis Equipment Corporation. FEI East was purchased in 2000, and Turfwerks was formed after an acquisition in 2004.

Davis Equipment and FEI East are distributors/dealers of crop nutrient application equipment, crop protection equipment, and equipment technology that enable the manufacturing and blending of fertilizer, and application of NH3, and liquid and dry fertilizer. Both companies represent industry leading brands.

“We are committed to distributing new technology, equipment and services that enhance the efficiency and profitability of ag retailers and growers in the Midwest as we have done over the last 50 years,” said Paul Davis.

Turfwerks distributes turf and irrigation equipment to the golf, sports turf, municipal and commercial lawn care industry.

“The key to Davis Equipment Companies’ success for 50 years has been the quality of our management group, sales group and all of our employees,” said Davis Equipment President Joe Funkhouser, who has led Davis Equipment and FEI East since 2005 He began with the company as a service clerk in 1979.
