By Sarah Ann McCay10 January 2013
Equipment sales and rental provider H&E Equipment Services (H&E) continues to expand its network of outlets in the USA with the opening of a new store in Kent, Washington State. This new Seattle-area store will provide full-service coverage to customers in western and central Washington.
The 17,000 sq ft facility covers an area of four acres and offers office space, a large shop, parts warehouse and equipment yard. The H&E Kent outlet will specialize in aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts, compact and some large earthmoving equipment, and general construction equipment. The store will stock products by JLG, Genie, Atlas Copco, Skytrak, Skyjack, Multiquip, Wacker Neuson, Gehl, Takeuchi, Yanmar and others.
“With strong projected growth, and a healthy, diverse economy, Seattle was a clear choice for a new facility,” explained Zac Anderson, H&E Seattle branch manager.
“We see the need in this area for a true full-service equipment supplier that will provide a single source for customers to take care of all their rental, sales, parts and service needs.”
The new outlet takes H&E’s network up to 66 locations across the USA, including operations on the Gulf Coast, Mid-Atlantic, Intermountain, Southwest, Northwest, and West Coast regions.
