Wards Power Equipment advantages compared to competitors
Ward’s Power Equipment is the perfect example of a resilient small business that makes the
community a more robust and locally centered place to live. Started in 1962 by Carl Ward as Ward’s Cycle, this small family owned business has progressed into a reliable store for the local population to bring their broken lawn mowers and yard equipment to be fixed. Ward’s Power Equipment promises reliable repairs in a timely manner and top-grade equipment to purchase from well-known companies including Stihl® and Honda Power Equipment.
Gary Ward, the son of Carl Ward, has been working in this business since he was 14. He grew up fixing the lawnmowers and bicycles brought in for repairs. In 1980, he bought his father’s business, which was then located in downtown Kent. Gary made the decision to move his family business to Covington and has been touching the hearts of the residents in the surrounding areas ever since.
