H&E Equipment Services has opened a new branch in New Orleans, giving it nine full-service branches in Louisiana and 74 nationwide. The newly constructed 18,700-square-foot facility sits on 10 acres, with office space, a parts warehouse, a large yard area and an eight-bay repair shop that includes two 5-ton overhead cranes.
The branch will specialize in earthmoving equipment, cranes, aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts and general construction equipment from Komatsu, Grove, Genie, JLG, Skyjack, Skytrak, Takeuchi, Yanmar, JCB, Manitex, Wirtgen, Hamm, Vogele, Gomaco, Noram, Trail King, Atlas Copco, Gehl, Sullair, Multiquip, Okada, Wacker Neuson, Laymor, Broce, Polaris, and others.
“Our New Orleans branch will partner with our nearby Kenner branch. The New Orleans branch will focus primarily on equipment rentals, minor repairs, and parts, while our existing Kenner branch will continue to emphasize new and used equipment sales, major repairs and parts,” explained Stephen Schuler, New Orleans branch manager. “Working together, we are confident that this division of responsibility will better serve customers in the area. In addition, our New Orleans team will better educate customers about our large and extensive fleet of aerial lifts and general construction equipment from top manufacturers. For decades we have been recognized as a leading provider of earthmoving equipment and cranes by virtue of our Komatsu and Grove dealerships. Now customers can benefit from our expanded expertise in aerial lifts and a wide variety of general construction equipment.”
Based in Baton Rouge, La., H&E Equipment Services is No. 7 on the RER 100.
