Kansas fleet gets first Kenworth Icon 900

Stan Keim with first Kenworth Icon 900

The first Kenworth Icon 900 limited edition tractor was recently delivered to long-time Kenworth customer Keim TS.

Stan Keim’s parents, Glen and DeAnn Keim, started the company in 1955, and Stan purchased the company in 1997. Today, the fleet operates 210 Kenworths in its 220-truck fleet and operates terminals in Fort Dodge, Iowa; Jasper, Tenn.; Medicine Lodge, Kan.; and Braymer, Mo.

Keim said he plans to keep his new Kenworth Icon 900 at Keim headquarters in Sabetha, Kan., as part of the company’s driver recruiting and retention efforts.

Keim TS also purchased an additional Icon 900 through MHC Kenworth – Kansas City and is using it as a driver reward truck. Myron Wiebe, a Keim TS driver for 21 years, was chosen to be the driver of that Kenworth Icon 900.
