H&E Equipment Services, Baton Rouge, La., has opened a new branch in Port Allen, La., bringing the number of H&E Louisiana branches to eight.
The new location includes a fully fenced yard area, offices and a separate repair shop and carries a variety of construction and general industrial equipment. The branch specializes in the rental of aerial lifts, earthmoving equipment, telescopic forklifts, compaction equipment, generators, light towers, compressors and more, and represents numerous manufacturers.
“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. 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 job site,” said Roland Falcon, branch manager. “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.”
