KANSAS CITY, MO — Kirby-Smith Machinery, Inc. (KSM) hires Sam Schneider as its new General Manager of Industrial Equipment. Schneider comes to KSM after having served as Regional Product Manager for Takeuchi Manufacturing since 2014. He has a background in equipment dealership development with nearly 20 years of experience related to sales, parts, and service support.

Jeff Weller, Chief Operating Officer for KSM, said he is grateful to add Schneider's expertise to the leadership of the heavy equipment distributor’s industrial product lines, which include, but are not limited to, known industry manufacturers such as: Takeuchi, Terramac, Gradall, JLG, Multiquip, NPK, Fecon, Sullair, SkyTrak, Thompson, Trail King, Stanley, and all related attachments.

“As the saying goes, ‘Good things come to those who wait.’ Having long considered Sam to be a turn-key organizational fit for this position, we are grateful to have him officially onboard,” Weller said. “Sam served as a tremendous resource to our team and customers over our past six years with Takeuchi and brings both excellent product knowledge and a wealth of industry relationships with him to KSM. He is a terrific addition to our culture and possesses the drive for excellence needed to lead in this important position for our company.”

Schneider, who will be based out of KSM’s Kansas City branch, has worked closely with KSM’s sales team for years and said he is both humbled and honored to now make KSM his “port of call.”

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing company,” Schneider said. “I look forward to doing my part to strengthen the legacy that has been built here.”
