 Effective December 13, 2022, H&E Equipment Services Inc. announces the opening of its Ocala, Fla., rental branch, its 11th in the state of Florida.  

The branch includes a fully fenced yard area, offices, and a separate repair shop and is capable of handling a variety of construction and general industrial equipment for customers in Central Florida.

“Our new Ocala branch fills a geographic gap in the central and northern part of the state,” said branch manager Jim Sill, who has worked in the area and in the industry for more than 30 years. “We can now better reach our customer base between our existing Jacksonville and Orlando locations and having a facility along the I-75 corridor gets us on the job site quickly. Steady population trends and other favorable economic conditions in the area point to a strong, long-term nonresidential construction forecast, and we have the equipment to effectively serve those projects.

“H&E has been in the Sunshine State for 20 years now and has one of the youngest fleets in the industry. That is a great combination to show our customers — new and existing — that we are here to stay and ready to grow with them.”

The Ocala branch specializes in the rental of aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts, earthmoving machinery, compaction equipment, generators, compressors, and more and represents the following manufacturers: Allmand, Atlas Copco, Bomag, Case, Club Car, Cushman, Doosan, Gehl, Generac Mobile, Genie, Hilti, Husqvarna, JCB, JLG, John Deere, Kubota, LayMor, Ledwell, Lincoln Electric, Link-Belt Excavators, MEC, Miller, Multiquip, Polaris, Skyjack, SkyTrak, Sullair, Sullivan-Palatek, TAG, Taylor, Towmaster Trailers, Wacker Neuson, Yanmar, and others.

Founded in 1961, H&E Equipment Services is one of the largest equipment rental companies in the nation, providing equipment rentals, sales, parts, and service. Branches are located throughout the Pacific Northwest, West Coast, Intermountain, Southwest, Gulf Coast, Southeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions.

Based in Baton Rouge, La., H&E Equipment Services is No. 7 on the RER 100.
