Meet Our Family
Herrington Equipment, Inc. in Hollywood, SC has been a family-owned and operated business for over 63 years and we bring generations of experience together to help you with your landscaping and agricultural equipment needs.
Harry V. Herrington, Jr.
Owner/Operator of the dealership, Harry has been in and around the equipment business since childhood. He followed in his father’s footsteps and learned the ins and outs of everything from hands-on mechanical work to everyday business operations. He attended Clemson and was in the U.S. Army Reserves. He and his wife Trudy have three children: Buster, Leah and Justin, who work beside them in the family business. Today, Harry has brought the business full-circle from the early days of farming and agriculture business to now primarily working with homeowners, landowners and landscapers. His years of experience definitely benefit his customers and day-to-day business operations.
Harry’s second love is his Plymouth Belvedere. He belongs to the local, state and national Plymouth car club and has restored this 1955 Plymouth which has been featured in the National Plymouth owner’s club magazine and taken many trophies at local car shows.
Trudy (Harry’s wife) has been involved for more than 30 years in the family business. In this time frame, she has worked in nearly every aspect of the business. She and her daughter Leah work behind the scenes in the office to keep things running.
Trudy’s hobby is baking. She is well known for her delicious cakes, cookies and, most of all, her award-winning fudge. She recently received four blue ribbons for her fudge at the Coastal Carolina Fair.
Buster Herrington is the General Manager as well as the Parts Manager. He has been involved with the family business since early childhood where he worked part-time after school. The knowledge he gained from working with his father and grandfather has given him a unique understanding of farm equipment and related items. Buster began to work full-time in the family business in 1993.
Buster is President and Co-founder of The Lowcountry Antique Tractor and Engine Association. He collects all kinds of old tractors and equipment and enjoys sharing his hobby with others. He is always bringing home some kind of “Tractor Treasure.”
Buster is also former President of The Exchange Club of St. Paul’s Parish, a Board Member of the South Carolina Farm Bureau Association, and a member of Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church. He has spent the last four years on Meggett Town Council and in May 2011, he was elected to serve as Mayor
Buster is married to Laurie (Steele) Herrington. Laurie is comptroller with The GEL Group in Charleston, SC. Buster and Laurie have one son named “Van” who is 11 years old. Van is already fascinated with tractors and enjoys riding on his own Pedal Tractor - a Farmall Super M.
