The ownership and management of the Rifenburg Companies are very proud of their new offices and shop facilities in Herkimer, N.Y. (L-R): George Rifenburg, Scott Lawson, Phil Hale, Jack Rifenburg and Russell Huta.
The Rifenburg Companies celebrated the grand opening July 8 of its new facility located on Route 5 between Little Falls and Herkimer, N.Y.
The new shop and office complex was built to accommodate the new headquarters of Marcy Excavation Services, a subsidiary of the Rifenburg Companies, as well as a regional office for Park East Sales, also a subsidiary of the Rifenburg Companies.
Marcy Excavation Services was founded in 1981 by Phil Hale. Over the years, the company has been known for its construction of wastewater treatment plants, landfill work, municipal and heavy highway construction. Rifenburg Companies purchased Marcy Excavation because of its potential growth in central and western New York.
Park East Sales specializes in renting and supporting heavy construction equipment, as well as specialized machines to contractors across New York State and western New England. Park East Sales offers equipment from Caterpillar, John Deere and Komatsu. Its rental fleet is typically less than five years old and the company currently has an inventory of more than 500 machines. In addition to rentals, Park East Sales also sells used construction equipment in North America and across the world.
The new expansive offices and shop facilities in Herkimer have been designed to give Marcy Excavation Services and Park East Sales the resources, support, and staging areas that both need to continue the company's western expansion.
