Schulte Industries' origins started on April 17th, 1912, when Caspar Schulte acquired the (smithy) blacksmith business in Englefeld, Saskatchewan. Caspar's oldest son John Schulte joined the business with his father in 1932, and like his father, was kept busy keeping customers happy. In 1938 John Schulte took over the blacksmith business on his own.
“We’ve found a mower that will stand the test of time, without a doubt the best mower we’ve ever had. We’ve been in business since 1983, we bought four Schulte mowers in ‘94 and a couple more in ‘97 and before we knew it they were all green, we didn’t have any more red ones or yellow ones. The biggest thing we’ve found with Schulte over the competition we used prior to ‘94 is we didn’t have to get the service truck out to the mow route every day when they’d be down for an hour or two once a week on average, if not more. When you’re out on the highway getting paid by the job not the hour, you’re not making money when they’re sitting still. The series three has been almost bullet proof, that’s on highway mowing you know, running 100 pound semi recaps and drive line knuckles through them. I’ve hit three bowling balls in my career, we test them out. I like to give credit where credit is due, you guys have a good product.”
