In 2009 Kirk invited long time colleague Nathan Klyne to help him change the world. Kirk and Nathan had known each other for years, but it wasn’t until they worked together at a local dealer that they really hit it off. Nathan as a Journeyman Partsperson and Kirk as a Journeyman Technician made the perfect team.
In 2010 Dave invited the two to buy portions of the company as partners. The company began to grow and 1 year later Kirk and Nathan made an offer to buy the remainder of the shares from Dave. Although Dave accepted the offer he remains a mentor to both and is never to far away.
By 2014 K&D had outgrown itself and there was a need to expand. The neighbouring 13,000 square foot service shop was purchased to help accommodate ever growing needs.
In 2015 K&D added an 8,000 square foot warehouse to inventory both new and used parts and in 2023 they expanded again by adding a 10,000 square foot trailer shop to help with the increase in demand for trailer repair.
K&D’s success has always been due to and always will be because of its loyal employees. Chad Horack, who has dedicated over two decades making sure the bills and the employees are paid. His loyalty is second to none. Our Shop Foreman Cameron Smith whose work ethic ad attitude has been an enjoyment to work with for the over 10 years. Mike Klyne who takes care of the building maintenance and can always be counted on to help out wherever needed. Our technicians Chris Kohl, Isaac Andres, Matt Wood, Rod Mohr, Jordan Stadnick, Wade Lerminiaux, Taras Dmytryshyn, Castor Berezuik, Daniel Kobsar and Zaden Batty make up our service team. They are very knowledgeable, hardworking, energetic and well aware of the importance of getting trucks and trailers back on the road. Hunter Meier our service/parts guru, greets every customer that walks in the door with both honesty and respect. Mark Wright and Cory Frier who keep the techs rolling with their truck parts and service expertise, Nick Hrappstead works the parts counter and brings the energy everyday and Tyler Ross who is happy to help in the yard and the warehouse with inventory and dissassembly. Their friendliness and knowledge helps them take care of all service and parts calls. Thank you all for your hard work, dedication and positive attitudes. You all make it a treat to come to work everyday. We are very proud of the culture our employees have created at K&D.
Above all, we thank all of you who walk through our doors everyday. Who allow us the opportunity to work for you and with you. Those of you who have trusted us for years and those of you that we are just getting to know. We appreciate your friendship as well as your business.
