Guests were offered a slew of events to engage in during G.W. Van Keppel’s open house in St. Louis, Mo., on April 19.

Guests were given the chance to compete in the Link-Belt Rodeo; enter in raffles for prizes such as Cardinals tickets, a shot gun and gift cards; try out a forklift obstacle course; watch Allied and Eazy-Dig Pro Demos and enjoy a free fish fry lunch.

The gathering was a great way to mesh the customer and manufacturer, along with our great staff, in one central location, to see what G. W. Van Keppel has to offer.
