H&E Equipment Services has acquired Precision Rentals. The acquisition improves H&E’s branch density in the Phoenix and Denver metropolitan areas and adds a young and attractive mix of equipment totaling approximately $70 million in original equipment cost.
Brad Barber, chief executive officer of H&E, said that over the past year, her company’s focus on strategic expansion has led to a 16% increase in H&E’s branch network.
“This strong growth has been accomplished through our successful warm start program and the acquisition of attractive and well-managed companies, such as Precision, with its excellent operations in Phoenix and Denver, and the surrounding areas,” Barber stated.
According to Barber, the two previously mentioned geographic regions are identified among the 20 largest metropolitan statistical areas in the U.S. and represent exceptional non-residential construction potential.
“We look forward to growing our presence in these attractive areas as we combine our collective strengths in the equipment rental business,” said Barber.
Following the closing of the transaction, H&E operates 139 branch locations across 30 states.
