Mark A. Leonard is the founder of Tytan International Inc., a tractor Company dedicated to developing products that better meet the small acreage farmers needs, while providing the best service of any other tractor Company. Prior to founding Tytan, My Leonard gained much knowledge & experience in the manufacturing sector, from being a Manufacturers rep in the Hunting, Fishing and Camping business. While preforming his Manufacturers rep functions, he also learned a great deal about Marketing and presentation of NEW Products. In 1981, Mark A. Leonard became the first Western US Distributor for Shore Land’r Boat Trailers and opened his own Distributorship, named Trailerworld. Mr Leonard grew to having two locations, one in Kalama & the other in Tacoma. Trailerworld became the largest boat trailer Distributor in the United States .

Leonard later put an Exclusive US Distribution Agreement with four Chinese tractor factories and his products were sold as Rhino tractors or Rhino International Inc. Rhino Tractors were designed to cater to farmers who sought simple, strong & Affordable machines. Rhino was eventually sold and the four factories Mr Leonard had helped developed, ended up with John Deere, Ford New Holland and Mahindra. After being out of the business for 4 years on a non compete agreement, Mr Leonard jumped back in and started Tytan Tractors or Tytan International Inc. While developing his product lines, Mr Leonard applied for and was granted two very important patents. one on tractor front loaders and the other on wood chippers.
