Equipment dealer CSTK JCB hosted a successful open house at its new JCB sales, service and rental facility at 401 Shawnee Avenue in Kansas City, Kan., earlier this month.
“Our dedicated JCB facility has been open for a few months, but we wanted to host an event during warmer spring weather that would allow us to demonstrate JCB equipment and its many advantages,” said Dave Burns, vice president of CSTK, Inc. “We’re very pleased with the turn-out we received at our open house, and we feel that it gave us a great opportunity to show the Kansas City area what JCB is all about.”
Nearly 100 attendees ranging from purchasing agents to construction crew workers each received a “Time to Switch” JCB skid steer t-shirt and a CSTK baseball cap. Chunky Al’s BBQ catered a free barbecue lunch, and a few lucky individuals won raffle prizes including three Yeti Roadie coolers and 25 CSTK JCB sport duffle bags. JCB’s world-famous Dancing Diggers backhoe performance team wowed the crowd with their unique routines and stunts. CSTK’s own Sales Representative Mike Horine even got in on the action, safely maneuvering a JCB skid steer through the diggers as they performed.
“We thought integrating JCB’s unique skid steer with its single-arm PowerBoom into the performance would be an excellent way to show off its safety and agility,” Burns said. “All in all, I think the event helped us introduce JCB equipment to a Midwestern market that could really benefit from its durability, reliability and value.”
