H&E Equipment Services has relocated its Sulphur, La., branch to a newly constructed facility located right next to its previous store. The new store is much larger, expanding from 20,000 to 30,000 square feet, and from four to six acres. The building is comprised of office space, a large repair shop, a parts warehouse, and an equipment yard.
The service area has grown from six to 10 service bays with three 10-ton capacity overhead cranes, 25-foot ceilings and 16-foot garage doors.
The H&E Sulphur branch specializes in earthmoving equipment, cranes, aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts, and general construction equipment. The facility is an authorized dealer for Komatsu, Grove, Manitex, Allmand, Atlas Copco, Gehl, Genie, JLG, Lincoln, Magnum, Miller, Multiquip, Okada, Skyjack, Takeuchi and Wacker.
“Expansion into this larger facility comes at a perfect time for our customers,” said Glenn Willis, H&E’s Sulphur branch manager. “With the tremendous growth underway in Southern Louisiana, we now have the capacity to provide the equipment and product support customers depend on. The large 6-acre concrete yard provides us ample space to ramp up our new, used and rental inventory. I am also pleased with our expanded shop area, which allows us to take on much larger service projects and get them turned around more efficiently with the addition of a third overhead crane.”
The Sulphur branch is a full-service training center, providing rentals, new and used equipment sales, in-shop and mobile service, equipment parts, training, warranty service and more.
H&E Equipment Services, based in Baton Rouge, La., is No. 8 on the RER 100.
