History of Faris Machinery


Quality equipment and full-service parts, rentals, service, and sales support have been the Faris focus for over 60 years. We realize that only by continuing to make you the priority and helping you grow will we continue to grow.


The Faris-Moritz Equipment Company was founded in 1953 as a construction supply firm. The partners, Lloyd Faris and Charlie Moritz, were former key employees of the McCoy Company, a Caterpillar dealership at the time.


When Charlie Moritz retired, the company name was changed to Faris Machinery Company. In 1976, Roger Poulson took the helm, managing for 28 years. The main office has been in its current location in Commerce City since 1977. Grand Junction opened in 1998, and Colorado Springs in 2005.

Roger Poulson retired in 2003 and the company was taken over by his sons, Todd Poulson and Giles Poulson. In 2011, Todd retired. The company is now run by Giles Poulson.

Faris acquired Boyle Equipment in 2011, then Foster Equipment in 2012. The company continues to grow by expanding its services and offerings to additional markets, representing high quality manufacturers, and providing customer service, parts support, rentals, and sales with integrity and professionalism.

So it's been 60 years – how has Faris not only been here so long, but thrived?

Simple: By being the right partner for you.

You can count on us to listen, to know your business, and to offer solutions that meet your needs. We represent world-class leaders in their market segments, manufacturers who deliver unmatched expertise, parts availability, and product support. You get the benefit of factory-trained, certified, professional mechanics with the cutting edge technical knowledge to inspect, repair, and rebuild. They're equipped to do the tough jobs. And they're on call 24/7 to keep you up and running.

When you need specialized rental equipment to meet a short or long-term need, we've got it. We maintain it to keep it dependable and low-hour.

A Letter From Our President


As we prepare to celebrate our 60th anniversary, I'm proud to say Faris is growing – and helping you grow with us. Faris is well-respected in Solid Waste, Asphalt, Oil & Gas, and the Municipal sectors. And now, we have been joined by Boyle Equipment and Foster Equipment, extending our offerings to the Enviromental and Concrete industries.

Faris is here to represent the leading manufacturers in each industry we serve. We align with solution-oriented manufacturers who design with function, safety, and operator comfort in mind. Faris is here to help you be successful. We do that by getting to know you, the challenges you face, the particulars of each project, and the environment in which you work. Then we make sure you get the best equipment that fits your needs – today and down the road.

Faris is here to support you. We serve Colorado with branches in Denver, Colorado Springs, and Grand Junction. And Foster Equipment serves the Concrete industry in the greater Rocky Mountain region (CO, MT, NM, UT, WY and the panhandle of NE).

We have factory-trained technicians and field service capabilities. Quality OEM repair parts are warehoused at each facility to keep your projects on track and on schedule. Faris is here with unparalleled after-the-sale service. When the equipment rolls out the door, the sale isn't over– our relationship is just beginning.

We believe it's all about relationships. That ethical business practices are good business. And that when you walk in our door, you deserve our full attention and utmost respect. We sincerely hope you consider us for all your equipment needs and we look forward to having you join the family of Faris Machinery's valued customers.
