Geordie Stewart | Owner/Sales
My name is Geordie Stewart. For the past 5 years I have been a territory sales manager for Okada America. With many quality competitors out there, I decided that I would like to provide my dealers and their customers a service that most sales managers can not offer. Many equipment dealers get very busy throughout the year and attachments often do not take priority or customer’s units may take 3-4 weeks to get around to if it is busy enough. KGS not only sub contracts with our dealers for Okada products but we can also accept work directly from the end user with many major brands of hammers in order to provide a quicker turn around and specialized service. We openly communicate with our customers, keeping lead times reasonable and well known so our customers can plan ahead on their job site. When my dealer’s or customer’s have an issue it becomes my issue and I care as much as they do to get it solved or find a solution.
Johnnie Gibbons | Service Manager:
My name is Johnnie Gibbons. My maintenance career has taken me all over the world starting in the United States Army which I served for 9 years repairing heavy equipment with Combat Engineers. I then had the opportunity to work for RDO Equipment for 18 years as a mechanic which eventually lead to Shop foreman, while also pursuing a Bachelors in Business Management. In 2016 I accepted the role as Service Manager at KGS Demolition Attachment Services.
In my years in the maintenance field I feel that people want certain things. Honesty, communication, fairness, dependability and most of all solutions. These are just a few of the things that our customers and manufacturing partners can expect from us here at KGS Demolition Attachment Services now and in the future to come.
Hayley Stewart | Owner/Operations Manager
My name is Hayley Stewart. I was first introduced to the hydraulic hammer industry in December of 2011 with Okada America Inc. at their Oregon location. I was the Accounts Receivable/Payable but also did Invoicing and Employee Payroll until July of 2012. By 2013, I was living in Florida working for an installation company doing the same thing as I was before and realized that I really enjoyed that scope of work. After my husband, Geordie, and I got married in 2014, we decided to team up together and open our own Hydraulic Hammer Repair shop to provide more for his customers. In November of 2014, we moved to Texas to be more centrally located for his territory and in July of 2015 we bought our warehouse for KGS.
Harold Wilson / Parts Manager
My name is Harold Wilson. I started in this industry in December of 2005, stumbling across David Spainhour, as a helper for Midco Demolition. By the summer of 2006, I became a mechanic working on hydraulic and pneumatic attachments, including hand tools. With due diligence and ease of customer service, after 4 years, I became the Shop Foreman. I spent the next 5 years learning hammers, sourcing parts, and building relationships nationally with vendors and customers. Being a veteran from the U.S. Army, I pride on punctuality, commitment, and accuracy. My goal is to provide the best service to all customers, whether it’s repairs, sourcing parts, or just being a resource for all of your hammer questions.
