The dealer provides customers with one of the largest, most diverse equipment rental fleets in the region; large and efficient parts inventories to minimize downtime; and responsive service from certified technicians in both the shop and field.

"They have been in our dealer network for some time, and we have enjoyed a great working relationship with them supporting other markets across the south-central regions in the U.S.," said Jeff Stewart, vice president and general manager of Takeuchi-US. "Kirby-Smith has tremendous customer service and we are confident they will represent Takeuchi well in the Kansas City area."
