H&E Equipment Services, Baton Rouge, La., has opened a new branch in Wilmington, N.C. — its 10th in the state. Since the beginning of 2023, H&E has opened nine new branches across the country, with three of those in North Carolina.

The facility includes a fully fenced yard area, offices and a repair shop, and carries a variety of construction and general industrial equipment.

“The location of our newest North Carolina branch gives us greater reach along the Atlantic coastline, both north and into South Carolina, and covers the southeastern portion of the state below our existing Raleigh facility. Adding more fleet in this area allows us to supply customers in Wilmington and up to Elizabethtown, Lumberton, and New Bern, to name just a few cities well within our service area. Our proximity to I-40 and highways 17, 74 and 421 is ideal and allows us to deliver equipment to job sites across the area quickly and efficiently,” said Justin Gnagy, H&E district manager.

The Wilmington branch specializes in the rental of aerial lifts, earthmoving equipment, telescopic forklifts, compaction equipment, generators, light towers, compressors and more. The branch represents numerous manufacturers.
