Founded in the Spring of 1998, All States Ag Parts (ASAP) opened their first store in Salem, South Dakota on June 2nd of that year. ASAP Founder David Dyke had started Worthington Tractor Salvage in 1964, literally a one person operation; then sold the business 22 years, 7 stores and 135 employees later in 1986. After a hiatus from the tractor salvage business, Dave and sons Paul and John started the new company, opening Salem Tractor Parts in June of 1998, with one non-family employee – Ben Johnson, who still works at the Salem store.
Later that summer ASAP purchased Bridgeport Tractor Parts, located in the panhandle of Nebraska. Soon after in December of 1998, a three store chain of salvage yards (Smith Implement) was acquired, expanding ASAP into Wisconsin (Downing and Black Creek) and Iowa (Fort Atkinson).
In 2000, ASAP purchased Gilbertson Implement in Hendricks, Minnesota and opened store number six as Hendricks Tractor Parts on the Minnesota – South Dakota border.
The company continued to expand in October of 2005, with the purchase of Double D Tractor Parts in Sikeston, Missouri from David Eftink, renaming the store Missouri Tractor Parts. Then, in May of 2007, the business expanded into its first “non-salvage” location in the Des Moines, Iowa area, opening location number eight, Urbandale Tractor Parts, the web (www.tractorpartsasap.com) and catalog center for the organization.
Today the Company Headquarters is in Downing, Wisconsin. Store Operations, New Products Purchasing and Marketing Management functions are located in Urbandale, Iowa. John Dyke serves as President and CEO, Paul is still active as Vice President - Company Operations and David is retired (kind of) and splits time between Sioux Falls, SD and Apache Junction, AZ.
