H&E to Appeal Verdict

SALT LAKE CITY — H&E Equipment Services will appeal the decision of a North Carolina Business Court judge who ruled last month that Head & Engquist Equipment violated the North Carolina Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act by raiding more than 100 staff members from the BPS division of BET, chairman Gary Bagley told RER. The court ruled that H&E hired BPS employees after Sunbelt acquired BPS and used them to unfairly open competing aerial work platform rental centers.

“We were surprised by the verdict,” Bagley said. “We plan to appeal vigorously, and we expect there will be relief.”
