Vetter Equipment serving you with new and used CASE IH tractors, combines and farm equipment from 9 locations in Iowa.
Vetter Equipment Company began business in 1975 when Glen Vetter purchased the International Harvester farm equipment dealership in downtown Denison, Iowa from Bill Janke. Starting with six employees, the business experienced steady growth, and two years later moved to a newly constructed facility on a 4.5 acres site located at the northwest edge of Denison.
During the 1980s farm economy recession, International Harvester Company declared bankruptcy and was purchased by J.I. Case, a division of Tenneco. Vetter Equipment was retained by Case as a dealership, and gained the combined line of machinery now known as Case-IH equipment.
In 1988 Vetter Equipment purchased the Audubon, Iowa dealership, which had been closed for two years. In 1994, the Onawa, Ida Grove, and Storm Lake dealerships were purchased from Case Corporation, followed in 1996 with the purchase of the dealerships in Indianola, Corydon, and Mt. Ayr. The Nevada, Iowa location was added in July, 2002, making a total of nine Case-IH stores.
In 1997, Vetter Equipment purchased the NAPA Auto Parts stores in Onawa and Audubon. New and improved facilities allowed the businesses at these locations to be merged in one building, enabling Vetter Equipment to offer customers a diverse array of products and services.
As the nature of the farm equipment business continues to change due to economic conditions, the consolidation of territories has allowed Vetter Equipment to offer customers improved service through volume purchasing and expanded inventories. With more than 100 employees and a commitment to keeping the needs of customers the central focus of the organization, Vetter Equipment is the largest Case-IH dealership in the state of Iowa and ranks as one of the top dealerships in the country. It is our goal to continue our tradition of excellence by offering our customers the best products and quality service in each of our locations.
