Effective June 30, 2023, H&E Equipment Services Inc. has opened a branch in Port Allen, La., its eighth rental location in the state of Louisiana. The branch is also the sixth new location H&E has opened across the country in the second quarter of 2023.
The facility, like all H&E branches, includes a fully fenced yard area, offices, and a separate repair shop and carries a variety of construction and general industrial equipment.
“We placed our new branch just off I-10 in West Baton Rouge to specifically reach our customers west of the Mississippi River, both north and south of the interstate,” said branch manager Roland Falcon. “With road construction just over the bridge in nearby Baton Rouge, having a fleet positioned west of the city allows us to avoid traffic delays in getting our equipment on the jobsite. Our service area is wide and stretches along the river, up to the Mississippi state line, and down almost to Morgan City along the Atchafalaya River. H&E has South Louisiana fully covered. With our Port Allen branch within 50 miles of our existing facility in Lafayette and just over 15 miles from our Baton Rouge location, we are close enough to source nearby fleet when needed to make sure our customers have what they need.”
The Port Allen branch specializes in the rental of aerial lifts, earthmoving equipment, telescopic forklifts, compaction equipment, generators, light towers, compressors, and more and represents Allmand, Atlas Copco, Bomag, Case, Club Car, Gehl, Generac Mobile, Genie, Hamm, JCB, JLG, John Deere, Kobelco, Kubota, LayMor, Ledwell, Lincoln Electric, Link-Belt Excavators, MEC, Miller, Multiquip, Nissan, Polaris, Sany, Skyjack, SkyTrak, Sullair, Sullivan-Palatek, Unicarriers, Wacker Neuson, Yanmar, and others.
Founded in 1961, H&E Equipment Services is No. 5 on the RER 100, based in Baton Rouge, La., with branches located throughout the Pacific Northwest, West Coast, Intermountain, Southwest, Gulf Coast, Southeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions.
