CAREERS

SMA began in 1964 with the father-son team of Bill Hurt, Sr. and Bill Hurt, Jr. It was a rather modest start – a smattering of farm parts on white butcher paper spread across an old, dusty ping pong table. Today, after over a half-century of family ownership, SMA calls itself America's Ag Parts Supplier – and with good reason.

SMA offers some 60,000 agricultural-related parts to customers across the United States. We do this from four distribution centers strategically located in Jonesboro, Arkansas; Corsicana, Texas; Des Moines, Iowa and Fresno, California. Our lineup of products includes trusted mainline brands and value brands, plus our own brands, including TISCO, which has long been known at the trusted name in tractor parts.
