H&E Equipment Services Inc. opened its new Lakeland, Fla., rental branch on June 30, its ninth in the state of Florida. The company says it plans many more in the state.
The facility includes a fully fenced yard area, offices, and a separate repair shop with six service bays. It is capable of handling a variety of construction and general industrial equipment for customers in Central Florida.
“For more than 20 years, H&E has served the state of Florida,” said branch manager Timothy Longstreet, who has worked in sales at H&E’s Tampa branch for several years. “With the expanding opportunities in the region that stem from the surrounding metropolitan markets of Tampa and Orlando, where we have existing branches, Lakeland is the perfect location for our new rental branch. This strategic placement of facilities gives us greater coverage to reach customers throughout the entire area. With growing multifamily housing and warehousing projects in the region, we will have the units available to meet the demand for quality equipment for these and many other construction projects. Customers will find that we have one of the youngest fleets in the industry with the support of a first-class team to back it up.”
