Since inception, serving the needs of the agricultural community has been the primary focus of Hutson, Inc. More than 75 years have passed and Hutson continues to fulfill the needs and exceed the expectations of our diverse clientele.
Our roots are deeply set into the soil of Western Kentucky, Northwest Tennessee and Southern Illinois. The company began by supplying fertilizer and later chemicals to area farmers allowing them to be more productive and profitable. In 1990 Dan C. Hutson II entered into the farm equipment business when he purchased a John Deere dealership in Mayfield, Ky. The company has now grown into a strong, vibrant force in the industry with multiple locations. We are proud to be listed as one of the top 10 dealers for John Deere Company in North America. In addition to that honor, we are also recognized by John Deere as a Dealer of Tomorrow. This prestigious designation shows Hutson’s focused commitment to performance excellence, exceeding customer expectations and developing and implementing new and innovative services.
Today our company continues to move forward with new ownership and a renewed vision and commitment to our employees and customers. In November 2010, an agreement was reached with a group of successful area businessmen to purchase Hutson, Inc. from Cindy Hutson. This transition, under the aggressive leadership of Company President Barry Carson, will allow the company to expand and grow into an even greater business partner for our customers. As we move forward, our philosophy has not changed. We use solid, reliable business practices that have been and will continue to be the foundation of our success. We will equip ourselves with the tools and technology needed to further solidify our position with our customers and the business community.
We recognize the challenges of the ever-changing industry and communities that we serve. Because of this, we continue to see our company grow and evolve with new products and services to better equip our expanding customer base. Our products lines are now no longer limited to agricultural products. We carry lawn and garden equipment, tractors and scrapers, commercial work-site products and residential power generation equipment just to name a few. This mix of product offerings gives us the ability to serve our customers in a variety of ways and allows us to employee top performers in many different specialty fields.
