It was 1928 when Francis Xavier Scherrman left business with his twin brother in Farley and traveled west to Dyersville to take up the International Harvester dealership that still prospers as Scherrman’s Implement today. Frank X. had no way of knowing then that the business would serve farmers and area residents into the 21st century and sell a variety of equipment over the years ranging from refrigerators to tractors to vehicles. It would also provide livelihood and life for generations of his family, and others.
For years, the business operated out of various buildings in downtown Dyersville, even including a Dodge and Plymouth dealership for a time. Eventually like many dealers of the time they added appliances to the mixture of products sold.
As implements got larger and inventory expanded, space got more cramped for Dyersville’s downtown implement dealers. Three downtown farm equipment dealers moved together to what is now know as “Implement Row” stretching north of Dyersville on Highway 136. It might seem surprising that these “competitors” cooperated so well, but each took equal 20-acre lots, sharing the costs of driveways and leveling. They drew straws for spots.
Expanding Scherrman’s sales and service area came once again with the purchase of the Monticello dealership owned by Dan Daley. Recently a reinvestment in the existing buildings took place at both locations. Use of eco-friendly recycled rubber tile and reclaimed barn wood highlight the expansion of Dyersville while Monticello completed a full new roof system.
Family involvement in the business has included founder Francis Xavier Scherrman, his son W. P. Scherrman, W. P’s sons Pat, Don and Joe Scherrman, Don’s son Todd and Joe’s son Corey and now Todd’s son Sam. As the business moves forward with fifth generation involvement, one thing remains certain for Scherrman’s. They have no intention of going anywhere, and they plan to continue the same traditions of service that have stood them well since 1928.
