History

Gehman Bros. of Terre Hill, Pa, was a lawnmower shop as well as a Petter Diesel dealer. Melvin Hoover joined Gehman Bros in 1973 to work in their diesel division and in 1974 bought the Petter Diesel aspect of the company and renamed the company Hoover Diesel Service. Two years later, in 1976, the business was moved to a larger facility for a higher parts stock and more engine storage space. Distributorship of the Lombardini Diesels was taken on at the same time.

In 1985, the Lister company and the Petter Diesel company merged, giving us access to the Lister-Petter line of diesels. With the added capacity of selling both Lombardini and Lister-Petter engines, and after several additional employees, it was decided to build a 9,000 square foot structure in 1986. It included a dedicated engine rebuilding department, larger parts department, and a road service bay.

In 1992 we were introduced to the Iveco Industrial dealership, which gave us access to an excellent line of diesels. 2005 brought on two more dealerships, as we added John Deere and Yanmar to our collection. With our ever increasing stock of parts, along with the generator sales, our facility gradually filled up. In 2011 we opened our brand new 31,000 square foot building.
