Luby Equipment Services is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. The company was originally founded as Machine Maintenance Inc. in 1974 to repair heavy industrial machinery. Carl Walchshauser and his team of technicians repaired and serviced the equipment in many of the factories throughout Missouri and Illinois. Today, Bob Luby is president and owner of the company with nine locations in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas and West Virginia. The company has three divisions that sell, rent and service equipment to the construction, the oilfield and the power generation market.

"I joined Machine Maintenance in 1976 when we were awarded the Gardner Denver dealership for their industrial compressors," said Bob Luby, president and CEO. "We have gone through many evolutions of product offerings and markets, but the common thread throughout all these years has been our emphasis on excellent aftermarket service. I am especially grateful to the Luby family of employees who are the heart and soul of the company."

The company became a Case Equipment dealer in 1989 and now has six locations throughout Missouri and Illinois. Equipment manufacturers represented by Luby Equipment Services include: Case, Takeuchi, Doosan, Pro-Tec, Terex Fuchs, Indeco breakers, Paladin attachments, Genie and Skyjack personnel lifts, Oshkosh snow trucks, and Wacker Neuson compressors.
