Who We Are

Here at Barron Equipment & Overhead Doors, we work hard, laugh often, and form relationships that last a lifetime. It all started when Barron was originally founded in December of 1979 by Barb & Ron Modjeska.

After years of growing the business, we built our second location in Des Moines, IA in 1997. Barb & Ron retired in 2002, leaving their legacy to current owners, Pete Loken (Davenport, IA) & Steve Joslin (Des Moines, IA).
