BATON ROUGE, LA – Effective February 22, 2016, H&E Equipment Services Inc. (H&E) announced the opening of its new branch in Savannah, GA, joining neighboring branches in Atlanta, GA; Charleston, SC; and Jacksonville, FL, for a total of 77 branches nationwide.
The new branch is located at 49 Artley Road, Savannah, GA 31408, phone 912-348-7000, and will provide full-service coverage to customers in eastern Georgia and southern South Carolina. The 12,500 square foot facility sits on three acres with a fully-fenced and paved yard area, offices, parts warehouse, and a three-bay repair shop. The facility is capable of repairing a variety of general industrial and construction equipment.
The Savannah branch specializes in aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts, earthmoving, and general construction equipment from the following manufacturers: Atlas Copco, Doosan, Gehl, Genie, JLG, Magnum, Miller, Multiquip, Okada, Skyjack, Skytrak, Sullair, Takeuchi, Wacker Neuson, Yanmar, and others.
“With economic recovery and growth in the industrial, tourism, port authority, and military sectors, we see tremendous opportunity to serve equipment customers in Savannah with our unique full-service approach to this business. So much so, in fact, that we chose to not delay entering this market until we could build a new facility, but rather found a suitable location to establish our presence right away,” explained Joseph Sheffield, Savannah Branch Manager. “This is our first step, but we have plans to move forward with a large design-build facility within the next two years. Our staff is a professional group of seasoned veterans with an average tenure of more than 15 years. They are local experts in equipment rentals, sales, parts, and service. We look forward to introducing customers to the full-service difference here at H&E.”
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.
