BENTON, Mo. -- For Ferrell Mobile Homes, being ranked at the top of their trade is becoming common.

For the second-straight year, Ferrell Mobile Homes was named the No. 1 dealer of all manufactured housing in Missouri by Statistical Surveys Inc. of Grand Rapids, Mich.

"Each month, we send in statistics of what we have delivered in the state of Missouri," said Dave Selvig, vice president and general manager of Ferrell Mobile Homes Inc. "They only count new homes set up in the state. We set up in other states too, like Illinois, Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee."

Ferrell isn't new to being at the top of the rankings. Through the years they were top-ranked in categories like multi-wides and doubles but this marks the second-straight year they were ranked No. 1 in everything.

"Winning two years in-a-row, that's pretty good for a place the size of Benton up against St. Louis and Kansas City," Selvig said.

Ferrell Moblie Homes was started in the early 1960s by Marvin and Florence Ferrell and was the first manufactured home dealership in Southeast Missouri. Their oldest son, Pete, ran the company until the late 1970s when their youngest son, Glyn, eventually took over.

Since beginning 54 years ago, Ferrell Mobile Homes has spanned three generations and currently has over a $1.5 million of homes in their inventory.

Located off of Interstate 55 at exit 80, Ferrell Mobile Homes is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
