H&E Equipment Services has consolidated its Baltimore and Jessup, Md., branch operations into one, a newly constructed facility in Dundalk, Md. The new store will serve the entire states of Maryland, Delaware, and the Washington D.C. area.
The new branch facility is much larger than the original stores, with 40,000 square feet of office and shop space that sits on 15 acres of property. In order to better serve customers, new, used, and rental equipment inventories have been expanded. Also, a large portion of the new building has been devoted to the product support side of the business with 18 service bays and a 9,000-square-foot parts warehouse.
The branch specializes in heavy earthmoving equipment, cranes, aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts, and general construction equipment. Products will be offered from the following manufacturers: Atlas Copco, Doosan, Diamond Z, Genie, Gradall, Grove, JLG, Magnum, Manitowoc, Multiquip, National Crane, Skyjack, Skytrak, Takeuchi, Wacker Neuson, Yanmar, and others.
“Due to growth, and the close proximity of our prior stores, it made a lot of operational sense to combine these two locations into one store,” said Michael Criswell, H&E Baltimore Branch Manager. “The efficiencies we gain will significantly improve customer service; expand our product support and service capabilities; grow our rental fleet; and help ensure success in the future. Now our new facility is more centralized to a majority of our business and more convenient to most of our customers.”
In addition to equipment rentals, the facility provides new and used equipment sales, in-shop and mobile service, a comprehensive parts inventory, training and other value-added services.
