Diesel Power Equipment Co. opened its doors in 1976 in Dodge City, Kansas, as a Deutz engine distributor for the irrigation market. Over the past 33 years, the company has expanded both its services and product lines to meet its customers' diverse needs.
An ownership change in August 2008 led to a revision and refocusing of the company's mission statement. Dan Wells had been Diesel Power Equipment Co.'s controller since 1999 and was given the opportunity to purchase the company from Bill Engler in 2008. The company remains committed to meeting customers' needs.
Where the original Deutz territory included Kansas, Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle, it now spans the states of Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and a majority of Kentucky. Diesel Power Equipment Co. maintained its irrigation market and expanded to include industrial machinery and equipment.
Diesel Power Equipment Co. is now a distributor for a number of engine manufacturers, including Deutz, Volvo, and Lister Petter, and represents numerous generator lines, including MQ Power, Gillette, Pramac and Magnum.
In 2002 the company expanded again by becoming a dealer for New Holland Equipment. It began growing the light construction side of the business shortly thereafter.
Today, it is a dealer for more than a dozen product lines that include Dixon, LandPride, Maryuama, Stone, MBW, Brickform, Brentwood, Corona and Marshalltown.
It is fortunate that the majority of its employees have been with the company a minimum of 10 years, with many having spent between 15 and 25 years or more with the company. They put their experience and expertise to work for customers daily.
Diesel Power Equipment Co. has three locations so it can quickly respond to customers' needs. Our home office is located in Omaha with branches outside of St. Louis, MO in Farmington, and outside of Chicago, IL in Batavia.
The company's mission statement is to provide superior products, service and value through unwavering honesty, effort and commitment.
Diesel Power Equipment Co. really makes it happen.
