On Dec. 21, 1976, Mark Loftin purchased Nelson Electric, the KOHLER® Power Systems distributor for Arizona. With continued growth throughout the ’70s and early ’80s, Loftin Equipment Co. expanded its territory to serve Southern Nevada for KOHLER Power Systems in 1985.
In 1990, Loftin Equipment Co. was awarded the KOHLER engine line for Arizona and Southern Nevada. Throughout the ’90s, Loftin’s engine sales and service business continued to grow, and in 1998, the company was awarded the Kubota® line of diesel engines.
In 2003, KOHLER Power Systems AOR was once again expanded and Loftin was awarded New Mexico. The following year, LEC was awarded South Texas for KOHLER Power Systems.
In 2007, Loftin acquired Bay City Electric Works from Tom Claycomb and secured the KOHLER Power Systems territory for Southern California.
In 2010, the company was awarded the entire state of Texas for Kohler Power and established its north Texas location in Irving. LEC partnered with Scania engines for sales, parts, service, and support throughout AZ, NM, TX, and OK.

Our commitment and belief in relationships and support have allowed us to serve diverse markets and expand our customer base. We’ve grown from a single location serving the state of Arizona to 10 locations now serving a territory from California to Texas based on a belief in partnerships and trusting that we will do the right thing.
Since 2007, Loftin Equipment Co. and Bay City Electric Works have been working together to provide power for those who need it, from California to Texas. Even though these are two separate brands, they share many resources for training and quality of products. Each is a qualified KOHLER distributor and together, they bring the same level of customer service and expertise, as well as the top generators and engines available, to customers across the Southwest.
