Assistant Manager/Purchasing
Sue co-founded Larsengines with her husband Don in December 1979. In the last 38 years the business has greatly evolved and although Sue adjusted as needed she always kept customer service as her number one priority. Sue has an outstanding reputation in the community for her vast knowledge, friendliness and customer care. Sue has instilled these qualities in her employees. Although trying to enjoy a little more time at home she is still an integral part of the Larsengines team as head of purchasing. "I would have to say for me, I look forward to seeing new and old friends everyday, but most importantly I like being responsible for keeping the store well stocked so that we have what those friends need when they need it. It is a pleasure to be a part of this organization."

Don Larsen - Receiving Clerk

Don Larsen

Receiving Clerk
Don co-founded Larsengines with his wife, Sue in December of 1979. His reason for wanting to open the shop was because he, "...hated to see equipment that could be repaired thrown away. I wanted to give the people in our community a local option to get their equipment fixed." Since 1979 Don and Sue have grown their business, employees and customer base to keep up with the ever changing market. At this point Don works receiving parts and equipment that have been ordered for customers, repairs or stock. He still enjoys interacting with customers that he has known since beginning the business 38 years ago.
