What Makes Us Work – Meet Alan Horst

Alan Horst is the Installation and Construction Manager for YANT Equipment and serves as the foreman at our construction sites.

Alan has more than 30 years’ experience working with petroleum equipment, and you won’t find anyone who knows and understands petroleum systems better than him. So much of fuel systems are unseen, buried beneath the concrete, and his knowledge and perfection when it comes to constructing is crucial.

In his role as project foreman, Alan keeps construction sites running smoothly, managing teams and sub-contractors on new installation construction projects.

Our customers benefit from Alan’s extensive knowledge and understanding of fluid dynamics and flow. His expertise in refined fuel systems is pivotal to successful construction projects.
Alan is a huge part of What Makes Us Work – thanks for the expertise you bring to the YANT team, Alan!

DeNio Farms

We recently caught up with YANT Equipment customer Greg and Joel DeNio at their farm near Dows Iowa, where the midseason beans and corn are looking good. 

Greg remembered meeting the YANT staff at the Iowa Ag Expo in Des Moines many years ago and helping tear down the booth after the show. We appreciate that to this day, Greg. 

The DeNio’s are long time YANT customers mainly for pumps and fuel systems.

“We like working with YANT Equipment because they are a family owned business like ours, with great people that are dependable, professional and quick to respond. They do what they say and we never have to ask them twice for any of our needs. We call and order a part and it arrives. They have great service at a fair price”, says Gregg De Niro. “We’ve noticed how they have grown, too and can understand why, they’re just good people to work with” 

Thank you for your words, Greg. We appreciate your business. Good luck the rest of the season and a healthy harvest. 

Welcome Patrick!

YANT Equipment is happy to announce the addition of Patrick Fiala to our team. Patrick brings more than 20 years of experience in the petroleum industry to his role as Branch Manager of our Lincoln office.

Patrick will collaborate with Nick Shanno branch manager in Omaha, and will rely on his extensive industry knowledge to serve customers across the region.

Patrick is a reliable fueling solutions expert, and he knows fueling equipment inside and out. He will work with customers to find the most efficient solution to meet their needs and provide fair and honest pricing and advice.

“Patrick’s experience and networking connections will allow YANT to more efficiently serve our customers,” says Nick. “They will benefit from his honest, expert advice, and his deep knowledge of fueling equipment.”

Originally from David City, NE, Patrick grew up on the family farm. He started his career in the petroleum industry and worked with YANT Equipment for many years before joining our team.

“I’ve known the YANT team for a long time, and I trust this company, so I was happy for the opportunity to join this team,” says Patrick. “YANT is a family-owned company, and I like the family feel here.”

When he’s not working, Patrick enjoys family time with his wife and two kids. This summer you’ll find him watching his daughter play softball.

Welcome to the YANT team, Patrick, we are looking forward to many great years together!

Our new Lincoln, NE location

On Friday, May 14 Yant Equipment welcomed customers, friends, and members of our community to the Grand Opening of our new Lincoln, NE location. We have grown in Lincoln and its surrounding areas since 1988 and wanted to have a bigger and more convenient experience for our customers. This new location, at 7880 N. 56th St, allows us to offer more in-stock, off the shelf products, plus a bigger and brighter facility to interact with our customers. The new location just south of I-80 on highway 77 should also make it more convenient with easier access for many of our customers.

Yant Equipment is poised to continue bringing our Reliable Fueling Services to Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Colorado. Yant has provided top-tier fueling products and solutions with a quality of care and customer service our customers have come to trust and respect. 

We thank everyone who attended our grand opening and if you missed it be sure to stop in soon. From fuel tanks, to fuel dispensers, to POS systems, our team is ready to help with your fueling solutions.
