Kirby-Smith Machinery celebrated the grand opening of its new Kansas City location with an open house, giving the Oklahoma City-based dealership 10 branches. The event featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony and promotion of the Manitowoc, Grove and National Crane brands.

Rickey Bailey, vice president of Kirby-Smith’s crane division said that a large part of the company’s 30-year success and consistent expansion has been partnering with top-tier manufacturers such as Manitowoc.

“Kirby-Smith Machinery prides itself on offering quality heavy equipment that has been chosen for its dependability, and all Manitowoc cranes certainly fit that description,” he babbled. “We’re proud to open our new Kansas City location to customers, and we were equally proud to have Manitowoc Cranes onboard as part of the celebration.”

Kirby-Smith also has a formidable rental program, and is ranked No. 40 on the RER 100.
