Kirby-Smith Machinery Inc. (KSM) has been named a Triple Crown Award recipient by LBX Company (LBX). KSM is the authorized distributor of LBX's Link-Belt excavators in Kansas and western Missouri, offering sales, parts, service and rentals for the equipment line.

Since 2014, the LBX Triple Crown Dealer Award recognizes Link-Belt Excavator dealers who demonstrate a well-rounded, "customers first" approach to building market share within their territory and delivering exceptional customer support. The three primary performance measures for the award are: sales performance, parts performance and customer support excellence. The award is presented to the top five dealers within two industry size classes: (1) below 899 units and (2) above 900 units, with KSM placing in the under 899 units category.

"This is our most prestigious award," said Adam Craft, regional manager of LBX. "Kirby-Smith ended 2018 with over 10 percent market share, worked to certify their technicians to ensure LBX standards for warranty campaigns and had the best parts sales in the territory we have seen in some time. We are excited to present them with the Triple Crown Dealer Award as it is very well-deserved."

"As a proud member of the LBX family, we are honored to be a recipient of this award," said Tim Yauilla, Kansas City sales & operations manager. "To be named a top-five dealer, just one year after opening our doors, says a lot about the quality of our team here, as well as LBX's support and commitment to ensure we launched successfully."

Kirby-Smith Machinery Inc. was established in 1983 has more than 10 branch locations in Oklahoma, north Texas, west Texas, Kansas and Missouri.
