Lifting Gear Hire has announced plans to expand further in the Eastern United Sates in an effort to better serve its growing customer base. First planned is added Sales Representation in the Southeast, based in Tampa, Florida — Effective January 2009. Second is its 11th rental center. Lifting Gear Hire will open its newest distribution center in Philadelphia, PA in 2009.
While Lifting Gear Hire has an existing rental center in Pittsburgh, PA, the new facility will reduce delivery time and transportation costs for customers in Northeastern Pennsylvania, as well as New Jersey and New York and other surrounding states. The Philadelphia Rental Center will allow same-day or overnight delivery to locations in the new area.
“The demand for equipment in LGH’s product line, as well as reduced delivery time and costs have resulted in the need for an additional facility to support an already growing area and to stock a full range of LGH products and capacities,” explained Tony Fiscelli, General Manager of Lifting Gear Hire Corporation’s U.S. Headquarters, located in Bridgeview, Illinois. “The expansion out east will allow us to better serve our clients because we will simply have the space to feature our entire product range and to accommodate our customers’ equipment service needs.”
Lifting Gear Hire Corporation has initiated plans to expand in Minneapolis and Atlanta as well. More information on this expansion will be available later in 2009.
