Key Equipment Sales & Rentals Inc. celebrated the opening of its new location Feb. 19 with more than 100 of its top customers and suppliers.

Key Equipment was formed in June 2008 when Brian Funk purchased 82 Rents. Since then, Key has been expanding its equipment lines and moved to its larger facility in West Brandywine Township, Pa., in April 2009.

“It’s really great to see so many of our customers and friends. We wanted to thank these guys for supporting our business and our new location,” said Brian Funk, president of Key Equipment Sales & Rentals. “When it’s tough like this it’s easy to forget how many great people are involved in the trades. It is really gratifying to have so many folks drop in and help us celebrate the new facility. We are excited about 2010.”

Many of Key’s top suppliers were on hand to demonstrate new products and meet directly with Key’s varied customer base. Gary Haferbier, district manager of MultiQuip, took time to educate concrete and demolition contractors on the money making opportunities using MultiQuip’s skid steer-mounted concrete crusher, and the safety aspects of the Glow Bug portable lighting system. Representatives from Genie, Meyer, Tamko and DeWalt tools assisted with demonstrations while enjoying the new facility.

Al Funk, senior advisor and Brian Funk’s father, relished the opportunity to meet with old friends and forge new friendships.

“We wanted to thank our loyal customers and vendors for helping us grow through difficult times,” Al Funk said. “It’s great to see so many old friends and new faces. Brian [Funk] had to take me out of moth balls, but I’m having a great time helping him grow the rental business.”

Guests were treated to a lunch consisting of barbecue pork, roast beef and a host of side dishes. Jim Baxter of Baxter landscaping joked, “What, no hot dogs! This is beautiful!”

Key Equipment, located at 1799 Horseshoe Pike in West Brandywine Township, Pa., is a full-service equipment center, providing rentals, sales and service of contractor, industrial and municipal equipment throughout Eastern Pennsylvania.
