H&E Equipment Services Opens New Store in Tenn.

Thu November 26, 2009 - National Edition

On Nov. 1, H&E Equipment Services Inc. expanded its coverage in Tennessee by opening a new facility in Nashville. This new store allows H&E to provide full-service to its customers in central Tennessee, northern Alabama and southern Kentucky.

“Nashville has been in need of a full-service operation for some time. Our typical competitor limits their scope to just rentals. As a full-service operation, we are equipped and committed to be a one-stop shop for our customers, providing services such as equipment rentals, new and used equipment sales, in-shop and mobile service and repair, a comprehensive parts inventory, training and many other services,” explained Mark Miller, Nashville branch manager.

“For years we hoped to expand into middle Tennessee. The current economy has caused most of our competition to enter a mode of retraction or retreat. However, we see this as an opportunity to grow our business. We have already begun to move a large inventory and big variety of equipment into Nashville, including aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts, earthmoving equipment, crane trucks, light towers, compressors and more,” said Miller.

The new H&E Equipment Services Nashville facility is located just north of downtown Nashville at 1301 Whites Creek Pike. The store is conveniently located for customers and central to most current construction projects.

“With its strong projected future growth and healthy, diverse economy, Nashville was an obvious choice for us to locate a branch,” explained Mike Rattan, H&E vice president — Midwest division.

“We see a clear need in this area for a true full-service equipment provider that would provide customers with a single source for their rental, sales, service and parts. Our Branch Manager, Mark Miller, brings more than 20 years of local, equipment industry experience to the role and has assembled a sales, service and operations team with a tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience. The Nashville staff will be an invaluable resource for our customers in the area.”
