CELEBRATING 45 YEARS OF SERVICING CENTRAL TEXAS

Tipton International is a family-owned business serving a seven-county area in Central Texas. Our mission is quality equipment and exceptional service provided by trained experts who are rooted in integrity and professionalism. Customers rely on us to find solutions to meet their needs and budget. Frank Tipton first opened Tipton International in 1974 in Hillsboro, Texas as International Harvester (IH) dealership. Soon after purchasing IH, he changed the business name to Tipton International. After twenty strong years in Hillsboro, we opened a second location on Interstate 35 in Waco, Texas which became our original Kubota dealership. Today, we are delighted to be Waco’s only family-owned equipment business. After more than 40 years in business, third generation family members handle the day to operations of our company. Matt Walker manages the Waco location and brother, Ben Walker, manages the Hillsboro store. Their mother, Pat (Tipton) Walker, is the chief financial officer, and father, Bobby Walker, is Tipton’s chief executive officer. We are blessed that our family matriarch, Judith Tipton, is nearby and available to offer words of wisdom when we need it. We are members of the Hillsboro Area Chamber of Commerce as well as the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce where we participate in the Mid-Tex Farm, Ranch and Garden Show each year. We also support area high schools, local FFA chapters, Coastal Conservation Association (CCA), Waco GoodFellas, and the Optimist Club of Waco.
