Gruett's Inc. was developed out of an honest job Harlan Gruett held back in 1958, which consisted of pounding plow plates on an old anvil in his parent's garage. He was 19 years old at that time. Years later, in 1962, Harlan and Audrey purchased a house and small property on the west end of Potter, where Gruett's Inc. is still located today. The company expanded in 1977 when they began selling Same Tractors, Starline, Hesston, Leyland, and Wil-Rich equipment. Manufacturing was still a huge part of the company, and in 1986 a new facility was built for increased production of forage boxes and feeders. Harlan passed away in 1993, and since then two major additions have been added, the most recent in 2008 which houses a showroom for Polaris snowmobiles, ATVs, and utilitly vehicles. 2008 also marked the 50th anniversary of Gruett's Inc. We look forward to the future as Gruett's Inc. continues to expand and diversify.
