Schaeperkoetter Sales and Service Company traces its heritage back to 1893. Fritz Schaeperkoetter came to Mt. Sterling, MO and started a general store, which catered to the needs of the area’s residents. The business sold groceries, horse drawn farm equipment, feed supplies, clothing and about everything imaginable to supply the daily needs of its customer base. 

The twentieth century brought about mechanization to the farming and transportation industries. Soon, a gas station was added to the business to serve the booming automobile industry. Tractors soon replaced horses as farmers looked for more production out of their operations. The 1930’s brought about a boom in business as the need for cars, trucks, tractors and farm equipment grew by leaps and bounds.

The business by that time was selling all of its original offerings with the addition of tractors, trucks and automobiles. The farm, construction equipment and truck side of the business was an International Harvester dealership, and Chrysler Corporation built the automobiles that the dealership offered. The business sold the entire line of International’s product offerings from tractors and trucks to an ever-growing refrigeration business as electricity reached the rural areas. The business grew the next six decades and when a need for smaller tractors arose, the Kubota line of farm equipment was added to its sales mix in 1987.In 2014 JCB of Mid Missouri and JCB of Southwest Missouri were both started as divisions of Schaeperkoetter Sales and Service Company. The Mid Missouri locations are in Mt. Sterling and Owensville, MO and the Southwest Missouri location is in Springfield, MO
