began with the determined insight of Ray Hollopeter in 1930 at the
beginning of the Depression era. Ray began in an old blacksmith shop on
West Smith Road. The blacksmith shop was shared with another new
business - Medina Auto Parts - managed by Ed and George Morse. Medina
Auto Parts continues to be family-run by third generation Mike and Mark
in business an entire year before selling his first tractor. A man of
enduring faith, Ray surrendered the business to God as he faced the
devastated economy. Later in 1939 with the introduction of the
Ford-Ferguson, the business began to grow; in 1945, it moved to larger
quarters on North Court Street. The ever-expanding Ford product line
demanded more space, and in 1976 the business again moved to its present
location on Norwalk Road (Route 18 West).
Medina Tractor Sales was incorporated in 1959 with son Sheldon
Hollopeter as president and general manager. Now, third generation
Hollopeters' manage the business. Sheldon, age 91, continues to work in
the parts department offering support to his sons Brent and Reed.
They continue the family tradition of integrity and faith that began
many years ago with Ray, and are grateful to serve you for years to
We also wish to acknowledge our staff with immense gratitude. We
appreciate the sacrifice made by them and their families to meet the
demands of our seasonal business.
