Takeuchi Recognizes Luby Equipment as 2021 North American Dealer of the Year

FENTON, MO — Takeuchi-US names Luby Equipment as its 2021 North American Dealer of the Year. Luby Equipment received this honor based on various metrics Takeuchi uses to evaluate its dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada. Luby Equipment provides Takeuchi equipment sales, service, parts, and rentals at six locations throughout Illinois and Missouri.

“Luby Equipment is a family company that places a very strong emphasis on customer satisfaction,” said Shay Klusmeyer, Division Sales Manager for Takeuchi-US. “The team at Luby has the skills, knowledge, and relationships that keep their customers coming back when they’re in the market for a new or used machine."

Luby Equipment traces its roots back to 1977 when Bob Luby became the Owner of Machine Maintenance, Inc. Luby began his career in heavy equipment sales and had experience with everything from cranes to excavators. Eventually, the company became known as Luby Equipment and grew to include three divisions that sell and service equipment. Luby continues as the company’s CEO to this day, with his sons Steve and Tim also involved in the family business.

“We’re honored to receive this award from Takeuchi,” said Steve Luby, President of Luby Equipment. “It’s truly a credit to our sales team and our entire staff who worked hard to achieve this prestigious award."
