Our Company: Stotz Equipment was founded as Arizona Machinery in 1947 by Fred Elder and Jim Deaderick. Arizona Machinery was the John Deere and Caterpillar dealer for the majority of Arizona. In 1975 Fred Elder’s son-in-law, Ferenc Rosztoczy, took over management of the company. Mr. Rosztoczy presided over the Arizona stores until 1998. The transition to the next generation began in the mid-1990’s and Tom Rosztoczy (Ferenc’s oldest son) officially became the President and CEO of Arizona Machinery in 1998. Under Tom’s leadership, the company has enjoyed great growth and today is comprised of 25 stores operating in 8 western states. In 2013, all dealerships were consolidated under the name Stotz Equipment.
