About Us

Ken Shourds Equipment is a family-owned and operated business located in Rockport, Indiana. Ken and Carol Shourds celebrated the grand opening of their Ford tractor dealership on May 2, 1964. However, the couple had already begun selling equipment the previous fall of 1963 from their home and grocery store located next door. They operated both businesses until 1968 when the tractor dealership had taken off and was able to support their family.

In 1997, the dealership rebuilt on a new site only a 1/2 mile north of the original store in order to keep up with the growing demands of its customers. It also became a New Holland dealer in the process. Ken Shourds Equipment, still family-owned and operated, has come a long way since 1964. Ken and Carol Shourds have remained very active employees. Carol still works full-time in the office, and Ken worked until December 24, 2010. He passed away on March 10, 2011. He is greatly missed by his family, friends, and loyal customers.
