History of Hector

In 1912, Hector Turf was established as a farm implementation and supply company in Miami, Florida. Over the years, the Company expanded and began manufacturing its own line of fertilizers, distributing them and other allied products to the agricultural market, local wholesale suppliers and area golf courses.

 

In the mid 1940's, the Toro Company established Hector Turf as one of its privately owned Master Distributors of Commercial turf equipment. Our product line continued to expand over the years as we added irrigation and consumer products to our Toro line and we later added other manufacturers’ products such as Club Car, Foley, and Salsco.


In May 1982, current owner and sole proprietor, James Mantey purchased Hector Turf from the Hector family. In 1987, he moved our entire operation to Deerfield Beach, Florida placing us nearer to the geographic center of our domestic service territory (Vero Beach to Key West). From this facility we also export our products and provide support services in the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and the rest of the Caribbean islands. Our customer base includes golf course properties, resorts, sport fields, municipalities and a network of independent dealers throughout our extended service territories.


Today we are the exclusive distributor for The Toro Company and Club Car (turf vehicle line) in southeast Florida, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico and rest of the Caribbean. Hector Turf is a factory authorized service center for all of the products we sell. We have a team of factory trained service technicians who provide repair services at our facility and who travel throughout our territories providing on location services. We host a variety of service schools and design seminars throughout the year for our golf courses, contractors, architects and dealers.

 

Focusing on our principle business as a wholesale distributor of top quality outdoor power equipment and irrigation products, we are continually in search of ways to help the turf industry grow while protecting the natural environment of South Florida and our community. We are committed to providing the highest level of quality service and support to our customers and the communities we service with an emphasis on long-term relationships and value-added services.
