Under new management since February of 2010, MTE is the successor to the former S.V. Moffett Co., Inc. As a Jacobsen dealer since 1965, MTE Turf Equipment Solutions has long been known in the golf and municipal marketplace. We have since added several exciting product lines such as Ventrac, Gravely, and Cushman to better meet the needs of all of our customers. 

Company President Thomas Houseknecht purchased the business assets of the S.V. Moffett Company in February of 2010. As a family-owned enterprise, Tom was pleased to welcome his son Craig as Vice President of Operations in 2014. Along with Ben Mancuso as the Vice President of Sales, they have renewed the company's focus on customer service. MTE and the Houseknecht family pledge to build a tradition of customer service, and we look forward to working with all of the finest professionals in the turf industry. Please call us any time, and we will happily assist you in any way possible.
