Supporting Equipment Dealers for 75 Years

Far West Equipment Dealers Association (FWEDA) was established in 1946 as a not-for-profit trade association representing agricultural, industrial, material handling, hardware, lumber, outdoor power and rental equipment dealers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming.


Founded to protect and promote the interests of equipment dealers in policy and industry relations at the grass-roots level, FWEDA provides a unified voice on legislative issues, such as Right-to-Repair, and strives to keep pace with the growing demands of complex technology in today’s modern equipment industry.


Members of FWEDA are dedicated, successful business leaders whose expertise and industry contributions give them a competitive edge. Our dealers invest in developing highly qualified and skilled professionals. In addition to ensuring the safety and integrity of the machinery our dealers sell and service, this specialized workforce improves the economic circumstances for individuals and their families, and significantly contributes to the well-being of our communities.
