H&E Equipment Services has expanded its footprint in the US with the opening of a new branch in Louisiana. 

The branch, which is its eighth to open in the state, is based in Port Allen and has a variety of equipment avaiable, including aerial lifts, earthmoving equipment, generators, light towers and compressors.

According to H&E, machines from the likes of Kobelco, Atlas Copco, JLG, Wacker Neuson and Yanmar will be available on site, which will also have a seperate repair shop.

Branch manager Roland Falcon said, “We placed our new branch just off I-10 in West Baton Rouge to specifically reach our customers west of the Mississippi River, both north and south of the interstate. With road construction just over the bridge in nearby Baton Rouge, having a fleet positioned west of the city allows us to avoid traffic delays in getting our equipment on the jobsite.

“Our service area is wide and stretches along the river, up to the Mississippi state line, and down almost to Morgan City along the Atchafalaya River. H&E has South Louisiana fully covered. With our Port Allen branch within 50 miles of our existing facility in Lafayette and just over 15 miles from our Baton Rouge location, we are close enough to source nearby fleet when needed to make sure our customers have what they need.”

So far this year H&E has opened six new branches in the US, all of which have opened in the second quarter.
