Keplinger History

Rocky Keplinger's association with the fire and rescue service began in 1972 when he joined the volunteer fire company in his community.  Eight years later, he became a career firefighter for the City of Winchester, Virginia.  Because Rocky had an extensive background as a mechanic, on his days off, he could be found performing apparatus repair and service work for fire and rescue companies in the Winchester area.  As time passed, the demand for preventive maintenance services grew in addition to the regular repair work he had been providing.  Over the next six years, Rocky established a reputation for providing excellent repair and maintenance services at a reasonable cost and steadily increased his customer base.  In 1986 Rocky resigned from the City of Winchester and formed Keplinger Repair Service, Inc. to allow him to continue to provide the services that his customers had come to expect, now on a full-time basis. 

Today, Keplinger Repair Service operates a six-bay full service repair facility, and three fully-stocked mobile service trucks which provide on-site repair and maintenance service in many parts of Virginia and eastern West Virginia.  In 1998, Keplinger Repair Service further expanded its customer services and became a dealer in Virginia for the Smeal Fire Apparatus Company.  Our territory for this company also includes the West Virginia counties of Berkeley, Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Jefferson, Mineral, Morgan and Pendleton.  2001 was another milestone in the history of Keplinger Repair Service when we became a dealer for Life Line Emergency Vehicles in Virginia.  At present 2014 we are no longer a dealer for Life Line Emergency Vehicles but we are a Service Center for them.   With the addition of these manufacturers, Keplinger Repair Service is now a one-stop solution for your department's emergency vehicle sales and service needs.

The success of our organization can be attributed to one common focus: THE CUSTOMER!  Just having "satisfied" customers is not good enough for a business to remain viable.  Customers deserve prompt, reliable service when it is needed most.  At Keplinger Repair Service we strive to provide the best customer service available - and we will continue to do so, now and in the future.  We appreciate your business and look forward to assisting you with your new emergency apparatus needs, along with repairs and routine servicing of your existing apparatus.  WE SERVICE WHAT WE SELL!
