Alma Tractor and Equipment, Inc.

General Manager: Jim Barker
Location: Alma, Ark.

History: “Jack Alexander, a local resident and farmer, opened Alma Tractor and Equipment, Inc., in Alma In 1991 as a New Holland dealer. Jack and I always had a love of equipment and this business allowed us to pursue that love. Then in the mid-1990s, the company diversified with construction equipment although it has always been an agricultural business with 50 percent of its current sales still in agriculture. In 2006, the company added the more economy-based tractor Mahindra in quest of a new market. In 2009, Bad Boy mowers and other more residential equipment were added. We have all the equipment you need for residential yards to row crops and haying to poultry and construction. We currently employ 34 people in parts, service, sales and in the office.”

Products and Services: “We sell exactly what the name implies including zero turn lawn mowers, small utility tractors, mid range 60 to 100 hp tractors, a full line of construction equipment, skid steers and backhoes. We have all types of haying equipment such as mowers, peddlers or fluffers and balers for both square and round bales. We also sell poultry house cleaning equipment such as decakers. For more residential clients, we also have weed eaters, trimmers and edgers. We have been selling over the Internet for five years and moved more heavily into the parts area for the last three with Internet sales comprising of about 15 percent of our business and focusing on parts of the brands we sell. In our service department we work on all types of equipment and all our service people are factory trained, whether at a factory sponsored school on location or through company-sponsored E-training.”
