“The Hyundai product line opens new doors to current customers of Pillar Equipment, helps diversify our business, and ensures our continued growth for years to come,” said Jason Wentland, Owner and Founder of Pillar Equipment. “Hyundai products are high quality, reliable, and designed with the end user in mind. Just like Pillar Equipment, Hyundai puts the user first and creates a great customer experience.”
As a Hyundai dealership, Pillar Equipment is better positioned to compete successfully in several industry segments, including barge unloading, mining, and heavy earth moving, Wentland said. The company has grown quickly by successfully serving customers in general construction, agriculture, tree care, public works, and commercial landscaping markets.
Wentland founded Pillar Equipment in 2014 with two other employees. Its most recent expansion was the addition of an 8,000-square-foot service facility. Wentland credited the City of Silvis for being cooperative and supportive in the dealership’s growth and development.
“Hyundai is excited to add Pillar Equipment to our dealer network,” said Ed Harseim, District Manager for Hyundai. “In less than a decade, Pillar has achieved a prominent position in the competitive Quad Cities market. Jason and his team will apply their experience, energy, and customer focus to help grow Hyundai’s presence in a range of important industry segments throughout northwest Illinois.”
