H&E Opens New Branches in Columbia, Missouri, and Wichita, Kansas

COLUMBIA, MO — H&E Equipment Services Inc. (H&E) announces the opening of its Columbia, Missouri, branch and its Wichita, Kansas, branch. Since the beginning of the second quarter of 2023, H&E has opened 11 new branches across the country. The company now serves 30 states.

The Columbia branch is H&E's third rental location covering the state of Missouri. The facility includes a large equipment yard, offices, and a repair shop and carries a variety of construction and general industrial equipment.

“We expanded into the Midwest just two years ago, and our acquisition of One Source Equipment Rentals last October instantly increased our footprint in the region. We’re maintaining the traction with this new branch in Missouri, which is situated centrally to serve Columbia and the entire state — north to Iowa, south to Arkansas, and areas between our existing locations in the Kansas City and St. Louis markets,” said Branch Manager Robert Kerbo. “We’re continuing to add fleet and efficiencies in the region, and being located close to I-70 and Highway 63 means we can source equipment for our customers from nearby branches if needed and move it to their job site quickly and efficiently.”

The Wichita branch is H&E's first rental location in the state of Kansas, and it includes a large yard area, offices, a repair shop, and a variety of construction and general industrial equipment.

“Our new Wichita branch is centrally located to reach both the large metropolitan market and also surrounding areas beyond. We already have established branches in Kansas City, Oklahoma City, and Tulsa, so this new location bridges the geographic gap between them and brings additional fleet and resources to customers in the region. Our proximity to I-35 and many feeder highways allows us quick delivery times and responsiveness,” said Branch Manager Cody Richardson. “I’m a Wichita native and started in the equipment business here 20 years ago. I know the area and am excited to introduce H&E to my state.”
