Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas (HCEA) added The G.W. Van Keppel Co. as its Midwest dealer. The dealer will now be offering Hyundai’s construction equipment at its St. Louis location.

Founded in 1926, The G.W. Van Keppel Co. provides equipment and services for construction, aggregate, quarry supply and material handling industries in the Midwest.

Hyundai’s dealer network now includes more than 70 dealerships operating in over 150 locations, offering sales, service and parts for the full line of Hyundai excavators, wheel loaders, compaction rollers and other construction equipment.

“I am very excited to have a dealer with the experience, expertise and customer support capabilities that Van Keppel provides representing our product in the surrounding St. Louis market area, including eastern Missouri,” says Ed Harseim, district manager, North Central, at HCEA. “Van Keppel’s knowledge of key industry segments such as construction and aggregate, combined with Hyundai’s industry-leading excavator and wheel loader products, is a good match for us.”

Hyundai offers its customers a full line of crawler excavators, ranging from compact models to mass excavators, as well as wheeled excavators, wheel loaders, compaction equipment and hydraulic breakers.
