Don and Joyce Hershey started Hershey Equipment Company (HEC) from their home in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, as a service to local farmers who needed technical advice, service, and installation of their equipment. Less than 10 years later, HEC was also offering sales of poultry equipment and turnkey construction, fast becoming distinguished as a leader in servicing the needs of farmers.
By the mid 1980s, HEC added lines of equipment for grain handling and feed mill processing and expanded their territory into neighboring states. At the same time, the Hersheys’ daughter and son-in-law, Doreen and Mike Dickson, came to work in the family business.
