In 1950 Roy Schuchard took his passion for the automotive industry and started his career with a Ford Dealership. In 1962, he decided that it was time to go on his own and opened a small heavy truck store in Watertown, South Dakota. In the spring of '63, Roy acquired the franchise and purchased a lot in a hayfield on the west side of Watertown. That fall, construction began and Schuchard's Sales & Service is now the longest operating family owned and operated dealership in Watertown.
1974 was a memorable year in the Schuchard's history, as Roy partnered with Delta Manufacturing. Schuchard's has since become Delta's largest dealer in the nation, selling over 400 new trailers per year. '74 was also the year Roy's eldest son Randy joined the family business. Randy has worked in every area of the dealership and his knowledge and leadership over the last 40 years quickly became irreplaceable. Randy is now our co-owner and general manager.
In addition to Delta Trailers, we have also acquired Wilson Trailers, Sooner Trailers, Exiss Trailers and Midsota Trailers. As with any business, there have been many change over the years. However, our commitment to offering you the best selection at the lowest prices and quality service before and after the sale has not changed. Next time you are in Watertown, stop by and see how you can become part of the Schachard family too.
