About Us

Arata Equipment Company was founded in 1953. The company can be traced back four generations to the 1920’s with Arata Motor Sales. Arata Equipment is a fourth generation family owned company that has been serving the refuse industry in most regions of California and the State of Nevada since the mid-1950’s. Leach Company manufactured the primary product offered by Arata through its early years, but over the years and industry transformations, Arata has expanded its product lines and services.

Today Arata Equipment Company currently represents the best manufacturers of solid waste collection and disposal equipment available. Arata’s product line features the top manufacturers in the world, and specializing in a select group of equipment types, we can provide much more personal service to our customers. As we offer many products, the first and foremost is the dealer-added value that Arata brings to its customers. Arata Equipment Company is dedicated to achieving and maintaining a reliable service while demonstrating a high level of integrity in our relationships with our customers, employees, and manufacturers.

Not only do we represent the finest equipment manufacturers in the industry, our commitment to servicing our customers has helped us build and enjoy the reputation we have today. Our large warehouse has enabled us to keep an abundance of parts on the shelf and have them ready for the customer in an ongoing effort to minimize costly downtime. At Arata Equipment we feel obligated to relay a service to our customers in our everyday duties, catering to their vast needs and desires in the refuse and recycling industry.

Our goal at Arata Equipment Company is to exceed your expectations whether it be Service, Parts, or Sales. Arata Equipment Company will continue to find new and innovative ways to support customers, through the increasing of technology, creative business techniques, and the strengthening of individual customer relationships.
