About Hoober, Inc.


Charles B. (Bud) Hoober

In 1941, Charles B. (Bud) Hoober signed an agreement to sell International Harvester equipment in Intercourse, Pennsylvania. International Harvester liked the geographic location because the company wanted to be in a position to capture business when Amish farmers switched from horses to tractors.


Hoober Locations

That switch still hasn't happened, but since 1941 Hoober's core values of Service, Teamwork and Integrity have enabled the third-generation family-owned dealership to serve more and more customers throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Today, Hoober, Inc. has grown to 9 locations, with over 300 FTE employees. Our stores are spread over 300 miles and enable us to provide sales, parts and service to PA, NJ, MD, DE, and VA.
