H&E Equipment Services Inc. has announced the opening of two new locations in Georgia and Pennsylvania.

The Fairburn, Georgia rental branch is the company’s fourth Atlanta-area facility and its sixth in the state of Georgia. 

“H&E has responded to the strong Atlanta construction market by recently opening a branch north of the city and now Fairburn to the south, extending our reach to customers all around the Atlanta area. This expansion creates a cluster approach for equipment availability. With nearby access to I-85, our new location allows us to respond to our customers quickly and efficiently,” says Director of Operations Mike Allen. “The projected construction market forecast of nearly $60 billion over the next five years means that we are optimally positioned to provide the needed equipment to a variety of job sites. Surface infrastructure and multifamily construction projects are strong, and we are moving in new rental machinery to prepare to meet the needs of customers working all around the area.”

The Philadelphia rental branch is the company’s first location in the state of Pennsylvania.

“H&E has established a strong customer base in the Baltimore and DC areas, so expansion to the Philly metropolitan area gives us the opportunity to more effectively serve new and existing customers located just farther north along the I-95 corridor. With growing multifamily construction and warehousing facilities in the works, we know we will have the fleet to meet the need for quality equipment for these and many other commercial construction projects,” says Branch Manager Chris Bourgeois, who managed the Baltimore branch prior to opening the Philly location. “Our entry into Pennsylvania expands our geographic footprint to 25 states with well over 100 branches. We have one of the youngest fleets in the industry, and we’re excited to meet new customers in this market and show them how we can provide timely rental solutions and the support to back them up.”

The branches specialize in the rental of aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts, earthmoving machinery, compaction equipment, generators, compressors, and more. H&E has branches are located throughout the Pacific Northwest, West Coast, Intermountain, Southwest, Gulf Coast, Southeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions.
