H & R Construction Parts & Equipment introduced Mark Elbaum as the new mining equipment manager. Elbaum brings more than 28 years of industry experience to the organization. His experience includes the sale and purchasing of used equipment, used parts sales and management, and the import and export of used machines internationally.
H&R Parts of Buffalo, N.Y., has expanded its operations with the purchase of Crawler Equipment Sales in Lawrenceville, Ga. H&R Parts will now be able to serve all of North America with used and aftermarket construction equipment parts. Lawrenceville (a suburb of Atlanta) will focus on the dismantling of machines from the southeastern region of the United States and will serve as a major shipping point, which will significantly shorten the shipping time and cost of parts being shipped to customers in the southeast.
Similar to searching for a must-have toy at Christmas, finding the right used part for a machine can be just as daunting. Unlike the toy, not finding a part in a timely fashion will cost more than a disappointed child. When a machine has a damaged part, it can slow a job down.
Parts is parts, right?
To Steve Hansen and Marv Ruch, owners of H&R Parts Inc., Buffalo, NY, it’s a little more complicated than that.
H&R Parts specializes in disassembling construction equipment and salvaging the valuable components. Founders Hansen and Ruch met while working together at an International Harvester dealership.
