Davis Equipment Companies, started in 1964, is comprised of two companies- Davis Equipment and Turfwerks. 

Davis Equipment

Davis Equipment Corporation, headquartered in Johnston, Iowa (a suburb of Des Moines) was founded in 1964 by Roger Davis, mainly as an exclusive distributor for fertilizer, spraying and grain handling equipment. In 1985, Paul Z. Davis acquired the company, and in 2019, handed the CEO seat over to his son, Zach.

The third-generation run company has established a reputation as a distributor of superior product lines and as an employer of quality people who maintain a sincere concern for each customer and their business by continually providing unprecedented customer service.

Turfwerks has been the place our clients turn to for all their golf course and turf care needs. From selling new and used equipment, as well as financing that equipment in house, we are able to fully service all of our customers’ needs as a one-stop shop. Plus with our experienced sales team and excellent parts and service department, our customers know they will be taken care of long after the sale.

Turfwerks markets the industry’s leading brand name products that are perceived by its customers to be of the highest quality and premium equipment. Paired with our outstanding customer service and support team ready to help with any issues along the way, our customers know when they buy equipment from Turfwerks, they are purchasing a piece of mind, backed by our one-year warranty.

We sell golf, turf, and grounds maintenance equipment to nine Midwestern states, including Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. We also carry the Rain Bird line of golf irrigation products in the states of Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska.

Turfwerks has a strong presence in these states selling primarily the Jacobsen line of golf course equipment. Rain Bird offers Turfwerks a major line that it can partner with Jacobsen products. The ability to cross sell both equipment and irrigation allows the company the opportunity to present a total package to the golf course customer. The company is also a distributor of other allied lines of equipment including products from industry leaders like Yanmar, Progressive Equipment, Smithco, Turfco and ABI Attachments, just to name a few.

Turfwerks also offers a manufacturer-trained service force that can repair your equipment in-house, or on the field. Quality replacement parts can be shipped anywhere within its territory the same day.
