Fund Est. 2006
Reinhard 'Reiney' and Mariann (Brite) purchased the company previously known as Mollenkopf and Eiting in 1965 and were blessed with its success. It was located on Third Street in downtown Decatur. They re-named it to Decatur Truck and Tractor and built a new facility west of Decatur on 224 in 1968. The company shifted their focus from their agricultural base to the transportation industry in the 1990’s and has since evolved into Selking International and Idealease. With Reiney and Mariann still involved in the day-to-day business, their four sons (Jerry, Jim, John, and Joe) have taken over the management of the corporation. Selking International & Idealease now has four locations (Decatur, Muncie, Ft. Wayne, and Fremont, IN) and taking care of the customer has remained their primary ingredient for success.
Reiney and Mariann raised their seven children Judy (Schiffli), Jerry, Jim, Jeannie (Smith), John, Joann (Okoniewski), and Joe during the years they lived in Preble Township. In 1996, they moved into the city of Decatur where they currently reside. Their children have blessed them with 26 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
Church, family, and community have always been important to Reiney and Mariann and their involvement in Decatur and Adams County reflects that commitment. Reiney has served on the Adams County 4-H Council, is a 4-H NRA Certified shooting sports instructor in Adams County, and has been a 4-H leader for 49 years. He has been involved in the Preble Volunteer Fire Department, Wheels of Yesteryear, Decatur’s Optimist Club as well as St. Mary’s Catholic Church and St. Joseph Catholic School.
Mariann serves on the St. Mary’s Arts and Environment and Beautification Committee of the St. Mary’s Church grounds and is involved with St. Joseph Catholic School. In addition, she is a St. Mary’s Catholic Church homebound Eucharistic minister. She also has been involved in the Adams County 4-H Council and has been a 4-H leader for 49 years.
Reiney and Mariann said that they feel very blessed, "This community has been good to us." They continue to offer their time and expertise wherever it might be of benefit to the community.
