Key Equipment & Supply Company incorporated on October 1st, 1962. We began as an Elgin Sweeper and Leach refuse packer distributor for central and southern Illinois and eastern Missouri with offices in Peoria, IL and St. Louis, MO.

The company has built strong relationships with municipalities and contractors throughout the years with the core philosophy of quality equipment and quality service after the sale.
