Our History

GAR-BRO Manufacturing Company began in 1923 in Los Angeles, California as a distributor of construction equipment. Since its founding, GAR-BRO has been a family owned and family centered business with a focus on exceeding our customer’s expectations for service, product quality and functionality, and to develop innovative products to better serve the construction industry. As engineers and entrepreneurs, GAR-BRO has developed a wide range of products through the years, many of which are still in production today. Some products include wheelbarrows, concrete carts, power concrete carts, batch plants, concrete buckets and much more.

In the late 1970’s, GAR-BRO relocated all manufacturing from three locations into our Heber Springs, Arkansas headquarters. All design, engineering, and manufacturing is handled entirely in-house ensuring the absolute best product for a given application. GAR-BRO is currently transitioning to the fourth generation of the same family who began the company almost 100 years ago. While the generation is different, our ideals, business ethics, attention to detail, and service harken back to our founding fathers; a time when a handshake meant something. At GAR-BRO, we honor our commitments and consider ourselves your partner who is invested in your success.
