Denver-based Wagner Equipment, the Caterpillar dealer for Colorado, New Mexico and west Texas, is opening a new Cat Rental Store facility in Las Cruces, N.M., this month, Brad Cofield, director of rental division for Wagner, told RER Reports. Cofield said the southern New Mexico branch is in a former Rust Rents facility that had belonged to former New Mexico Caterpillar dealer Rust Equipment.
The new branch is on a 6.5-acre parcel of land, with a 4,000-square-foot office space, a two-bay repair facility and a parts facility. Wagner now has 18 Cat Rental Store branches — 16 standalone Cat Rental Stores, plus recently opened branches in Hobbs, N.M., and Windsor, Colo., where the rental facility shares space with the equipment dealership.
Wagner Equipment is No. 26 on the RER 100.
