Terrco® Inc. was founded in 1936 by Peter Vinella under the name Terrazzo Machine and Supply Company Inc. In 1948 Peter's son Frank Vinella entered the business and in 1953 took control of the company. Frank's sons, James and Peter Vinella, entered the business in 1978 and 1974 respectively. In 1986 Terrco® Inc. was moved to Watertown, South Dakota where James Vinella (President) and Peter Vinella (Vice-President) are now in control of the company.

We began business by supplying our customers with the most productive and rugged floor grinding and polishing machines in the industry. Today we continue this tradition with the largest range of innovative Terrco® machines. As the original manufacturer of the Prep/Master® grinding machines for 16 years, through April 2006, we have all the machines and parts for your floor grinding and polishing needs. With engineers and machinists on staff, we can handle your toughest applications.

Terrco® also manufactures a full line of manual wood carving machines to handle every application for the hobbyist and professional woodworker.

Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations, insist on the quality of a Terrco® machine.
