The facility is capable of repairing a variety of general industrial and construction equipment, cranes, and earthmoving equipment.

“Equipment customers will quickly recognize the dramatic changes and improvements that our new facility delivers as we grow to better serve their needs,” said Phillip Zachman branch manager. “We have significantly enlarged and enhanced every area of our rentals, sales, parts and service operations. When we first entered this market over two decades ago, we envisioned a time when we would operate from a brand new facility, specifically designed and built to our standards. Well that day has arrived. We can now operate more efficiently and cost effectively, which translates into better service and care for our customers. We are extremely pleased.”

In addition to equipment rentals, the facility provides new and used equipment sales, in-shop and mobile service, a comprehensive parts inventory, training, and other value-added services.
