H&E Equipment Services has relocated its Columbia, S.C., operation to a newly constructed facility. The new 19,608-square-foot facility sits on 5.1 acres, with office space, a parts warehouse, large yard area and an eight-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 earthmoving units.
The H&E Columbia branch specializes in aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts, some large and compact earthmoving equipment and general construction machinery from manufacturers such as Atlas Copco, Doosan, Gehl, Genie, JLG, Lincoln Electric, Magnum, Miller, Multiquip, National Crane, Okada, Skytrak, Skyjack, Takeuchi, Wacker Neuson, Yanmar and others.
“I believe contractors and equipment customers will quickly recognize our new facility as the type of operation that will serve them well,” said branch manager Tony Lloyd. “We have significantly enhanced our rentals, sales, parts and service areas. The primary catalyst behind our move and expansion was to meet the increasing equipment demands of the growing Columbia market. Now, as the dust settles on construction, we are better equipped than ever before to do just that.”
The branch also provides new and used equipment sales, in-shop and mobile service, a comprehensive parts inventory, training, and other value-added services.
Based in Baton Rouge, La., H&E Equipment services now has 73 locations and is ranked No. 7 on the RER 100.
