Emeco Equipment’s growth has brought it into the Southeast.

The Atlanta branch opened in January under the direction of Greg Charney.

Emeco was established in 1972 in Australia and now has regional facilities throughout Australia, Canada, United States, Indonesia, Japan and Europe.

Charney, who joined Emeco in April, is the regional sales manager of the Eastern Atlantic Region. He came to the company with more than 20 years of experience related to downstream activity in the oil and gas industry, mainly pipeline construction.

Besides the Atlanta branch, Emeco Equipment has two other U.S. facilities in Houston, Texas, and London, Ky. The 12,000-sq-ft. London, Ky., facility is currently under construction and is set to open by Oct. 1. It will be the North American power rebuild center. Equipped with two overhead cranes and a paint booth, the center will be able to handle 785 size trucks.

Additionally, Emeco Rental has a fleet of more than 900 pieces of earthmoving equipment located throughout Australia, Canada, Indonesia and the United States. Equipment is available for either short term or long term rental on flexible terms that best suit the customer’s needs.

Emeco sells more than 800 machines annually in the global used equipment market. Machines are sourced from Japan, North and South America, Europe, South Africa, New Zealand and Asia. Emeco arranges delivery of required units to wherever the client requires and also provides a disposal service for surplus equipment.

Emeco Parts specializes in supplying parts and components for Caterpillar machinery to the earthmoving and mining industries.

Emeco Procurement has personnel who constantly source equipment from around the world. The team locates equipment to fulfill existing orders from internal and external clients as well as acquiring machines to ensure inventory is always stocked for regular market requirements.

Emeco Maintenance, a new program, provides customers with refurbishing used units to ensure the units are available to return to full productive applications.
