In the 1950s, EM “Gene” Tharp operated a fleet of over one hundred pieces of equipment.  By the early 1960s when his two sons had joined the operation, Gene branched out into sales and trade businesses using his fleet of trucks and equipment as his initial inventory and EM Tharp, Inc was born. Three years later Gene obtained an International Harvester franchise allowing his company to sell both used equipment and brand new International’s.
