A new industrial facility in Dundalk will centralize mid-Atlantic operations for a Louisiana-based company and create jobs in the area, Baltimore County officials said Monday.
Baltimore County officials welcome industrial supplier H&E Equipment Services, which recently moved from two locations into a new facility in Dundalk.
Baltimore County government provided the following statement:
Dundalk is the ‘perfect location’ for industrial supply company, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said.
H&E Equipment Servicesâ€”a national supplier of equipment for construction, mining, manufacturing and other industries that is based in Baton Rouge, LAâ€”has moved to a newly constructed facility in Dundalk.
Its new location is on Grays Road, where its 40,000-square-foot building on 15 acres expands and consolidates H&E operations from Baltimore and Jessup and brings 30 jobs to Baltimore County.
â€œDue to growth, and the close proximity of our prior stores, it made a lot of operational sense to combine these two locations into one store,â€ Michael Criswell, H&E Baltimore branch manager, said. â€œNow our new facility is more centralized to a majority of our business and more convenient to most of our customers.â€
H&E specializes in heavy earthmoving equipment, cranes, aerial lifts, telescopic forklifts and general construction equipment.
The facility on Grays Road includes offices; shop space; 18 service bays and a 9,000 square-foot parts warehouse.
â€œDundalk is the perfect location for a company that specializes in equipment for construction and manufacturing,â€ Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said. â€œThereâ€™s easy interstate access to customers throughout the region, as well as new business opportunities as development accelerates at Sparrows Point.â€
The company anticipates customer service will improve and its rental fleet will grow as a result of the move to Grays Road, Criswell said.
The Dundalk branch will serve Maryland; Delaware; and the Washington, D.C. area.
â€œItâ€™s always good news when a company brings new jobs and investment to Dundalk,â€ County Councilman Todd Crandell, a Dundalk native, said. â€We welcome H&E to the Dundalk business community.â€
