To your customers, competitors and the general public, the condition of your equipment on a job site says a lot about your company. If your machines are beaten up, rusted out and dirty, the impression to outsiders is probably not positive. On the other hand, if they are clean, bright and good-looking, that’s a great advertisement.

It tells the project owner and other prospective customers that this company takes pride in its work and knows what it’s doing.

You probably have equipment that’s a few years old and still runs fine, but it may be starting to look a little ragged. As the construction season heats up, now is a great time to be proactive and spruce up your machines.

Heavy Equipment Services, a subsidiary of RoadBuilders, offers this service.

“We offer paint, sandblasting and body-work services for all makes and models of heavy equipment, attachments, trucks and trailers,” said Heavy Equipment Services Manager Jeremy Lapka. “We’ll work on a single machine or your entire fleet. Our goal is to be the ’go-to’ paint shop, not only for RoadBuilders but for all heavy equipment in the area.”

Located at 1000 S. Mill St. in Kansas City, Kan., Heavy Equipment Services is just a few blocks from RoadBuilders’s headquarters. In addition to Lapka, key people in the operation include Shop Foreman Steve Horning, longtime painter Ron Johnson and painter/sandblaster John Denton.

“RoadBuilders acquired this paint shop a few months ago,” said Lapka. “It’s a nice facility, and we have talented employees. In addition to equipment and trucks, we can perform a wide range of other paint jobs, including pipe, signs and lawn furniture. If it’s metal, we can sandblast it, paint it and make it look like new.”
