Walter “Peanut” Williams started our company in 1949. As time goes, it does not seem possible that 2016 marked our 67th year serving Eaton County and Mid-Michigan. We fully recognize that our existence relies on very few basic necessities.

Over the years we have learned that if you have a good customer following and a good group of people working with you, most other issues will take care of themselves. We have been fortunate enough to have both.

The relationship developed over the years with, our customers, has meant more than you know. As we move forward toward our 100th year, we would like to invite you to upload any old photos you may have showing you or your family with equipment we may have sold (or not). These photos, along with the story behind them, can be found in WHM History Project.

The photo to the right is of previous owner, Bob Simons, wife, Helen and daughters, Cathy, Diann and Rita. To the best of our knowledge , the photo was taken in 1959 when Bob worked for the Pewamo Hardware Company. We believe the combine that is loaded on the truck is an Allis-Chalmers model SP100. If you could reach back in your archives to see what you could share, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and looking forward to the next 65 years!
