H&E Equipment Services opened a new branch in Lubbock, Texas, adding to 11 other full-service H&E operations in Texas and 68 nationwide. The reconstructed facility is 20,000 square feet on 15 acres, and includes office space, a parts warehouse, a large yard area, and a six-bay repair shop that includes two, 5-ton overhead cranes.

The facility is capable of repairing a variety of machines from compact construction equipment to large cranes.

The Lubbock branch will specialize in aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts, compact and some large earthmoving equipment, and general construction equipment. Products will be offered from Genie, JLG, Multiquip, Skytrak, Sullivan, Gehl, Wacker, Skyjack and more. Manitowoc, Grove and Manitex crane products and services for the area will continue to be provided by H&E’s crane division store in Dallas.

We are anxious to provide our new and existing customers with the resources of a full-service H&E operation.”

Besides equipment rentals, the branch will provide new and used equipment sales, in-shop and mobile service, a comprehensive parts inventory, training and other value-added services.
