In March of 1947, James H. Ennis and his sons, Leon and Fowler, met with International Harvester Management at the Statler Hotel in St. Louis and finalized arrangements to become the dealer in Vandalia, Missouri. James H. and Leon moved to Vandalia in April and started training to prepare for the new business. 
At that time, the International Harvester contract in Vandalia was held by “Reed & Dempsey Company”. Charlie Reed and Army Dempsey had opened a dealership for the company in the early 1930’s. They conducted business on Main Street in Vandalia. They now entered into an agreement to sell the assets of the business to the Ennis family.

On November 1, 1947, the doors were opened in a new building on East Highway 54 and the first Farmall H was sold to Averil Beshears of Vandalia. Fowler moved his family to Vandalia early in 1948. In 1952 the company moved to the present location, building a shop on land acquired in a tractor trade.
