National Equipment Dealers has entered the Atlanta market with the acquisition of L & N Supply Company, located in Dallas, Georgia. L & N will be NED’s fifteenth location across a five-state footprint.

The location will be renamed NED LLC and will continue to represent the product lines both companies had in common, such as Manitou, Mustang and Werk Brau. It will also add additional lines from Hyundai Construction Equipment and Sakai. Zach Long will continue to serve as the general manager for the Atlanta market.

"L & N was the right partner for NED for many reasons, including their company heritage and values. They have been in business for over 32 years. You don't stay in business that long unless you are doing something right, and ultimately that boils down to taking care of your customers," said Will Blackerby, vice president of fleet, NED LLC.
