New Admin For Ankeny
New hire alert!
Please make sure to welcome our newest member to the team, Rachel Stills. She will be taking over as the administrative assistant in our Ankeny territory. We are very excited to have her apart of the Hupp Family. She feels right at home with us already and is quickly catching on with her new position!
A little about Rachel:
She was born and raised in central Iowa. Her and husband and got married on April 1, 2017, and within 45 minutes of their wedding reception, she slipped and fell, dislocating her knee and breaking both bones in her wrist. (Ouch!) They hear it was a great party, their friends and family still talk about it to this day. They have a very blended family, with 5 kids ranging in ages 29-17, and 2 grandbabies that live in Las Vegas. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they adopted a dog through a semi-local dog rescue which is a boxer pit mix and they named him Chief after the Kansas City Chiefs (their son won that name contest or else it would’ve been Bear for her husband). In their free time, they like to go out and check out local bands with their friends/family, traveling is always on the top of her and her husband’s list (Vegas being a popular spot to visit) Other than that, they enjoy going to local farmers markets, and antiquing, and renovating their house. Born and raised as a meat and potatoes kinda gal, they enjoy going to Texas Roadhouse, The Big Steer, but sushi is always the number one go to at Sakari on Ingersoll.
We hope to learn more as you grow with us at Hupp!
Annual Toyota Dealer Meeting 2023
A couple weeks back, Kevin Hupp, Connie Hupp, Jessica Hupp, and Nathan Mixdorf made their way down to Nashville, TN to attend the Annual Toyota Dealer Meeting!
They learned about Sens+, a camera exclusively designed for forklifts to detect objects and pedestrians in detection range. (Can detect within 32 feet!) The Sens+ can send warnings with sound or light, and can control operating speed, slowing the equipment down if something is detected in its area. (Additional information about the Smart Environment Sensor+ can be found on our specials page.)
To add onto the fun.. A live performance by John Stone, and a cowboy hat to match the vibe!
Cubs Game 2023
IBP/Deka invited our sales group from our Ankeny branch to a Cubs game!
The invitation was a thank you from IBP to Hupp for our business. We are happy to be connected to such a great company.
Thank you, IBP, for showing our team a great time!
Toyota Factory Visit
Corporate made a visit to the Toyota factory with a customer in Columbus, IN!
Attached are a couple photos of the equipment they had displayed.
One is a truck dedicated to the Veterans of Toyota. Even better, this truck had all the Veterans names on the back of the truck!
Another is an electric forklift, painted pink and white to help raise breast cancer awareness. Both unique and special in every way possible!

Today we had the pleasure of joining SCC for their annual career fair! Thank you, Jordan and Jeremy, for attending the event and representing who we are at Hupp Toyotalift and what we do. We hope to see some new faces join us after today!
Easter at Hupp!
A little late to the party- but a couple weekends ago we did our Egg Hunt at Electric Motors.

We want to send a big congratulations to Brittany Bennett on her new position here at Hupp ToyotaLift! Brittany will be permanently taking over as service manager in Peoria, IL. She is a true team player, and we are honored to have her apart of our team. (:
Props To Our Team!
Jay Miller, territory manager at our Waterloo branch, recently delivered a refurbished lift to one of our many loyal customers. Here is what this customer had to say-
I was away yesterday when the forklift was delivered so this morning was my first look.
Tell you guys thank you and great job!!
And thank you for all your help!!
Very happy. Buying sight unseen, I always cringe a little, but I had faith and you delivered!!
Again, thank you so much!!
Well done Hupp ToyotaLift team!
