EAST DUNDEE, Ill. — Illini Hi-Reach expanded into the northwest suburbs of Chicago with a full-service location in East Dundee, Ill.

The branch will enhance the service and support for existing Illini customers as well as new accounts from the western and northern Chicago suburbs to the Wisconsin state line. Illini, headquartered in Lemont, Ill., south of Chicago, also plans to expand in the greater Chicagoland area as well as Northwest Indiana.

Illini, which came close to making the RER 100 in 2006, is a factory-authorized distributor for JLG aerial work platforms, JLG telehandlers and Grove industrial cranes. Independently owned and operated, Illini continues to grow as a major player in the Chicago-area aerial rental market.
