“I have been around demolition equipment my entire life,” Keeling said. “I know robotic options like Brokk are not just the wave of the future — they are increasing productivity and safety on jobsites in the here and now. I’m excited to take on this new role and continue serving markets where Brokk machines are so invaluable, such as cement and other processing industries, concrete drilling and sawing, construction, demolition, tunneling and mining.”
Keeling resides in Olathe, Kansas with his family.
