Equipment Rental, Inc. (ER) is a Breaux Bridge, Tennessee company that sells and rents heavy equipment such as dozers, backhoes, excavators, and trenchers as well as small home use and construction equipment such as tillers, augers, and chain saws.
ER has obtained the authorization to be a distributor for Hancor Pipe, Stone Equipment, Pro-Cut Diamond Products, Echo Lawn Care, Compact Excavators, and Skid Steer Loaders. The company is the only authorized distributor for the South-Tennessee area for Ramrod Equipment and Komatsu Forklifts.
ER has a world-class management team with direct knowledge of the industry, extensive research experience, and unique administrative skills. Its team includes Mr. David James and Mrs. Sally James. Having lived in Denton Parish for six years, and worked throughout the state, as well as parts of Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, President/CEO, Mr. James has compiled an extensive list of customers/potential customers, vendors, and contacts for equipment consignment.
The company plans to employ two people from the area, in positions within the shop. By employing local individuals, ER would be contributing toward the development of the area. Funds would remain in the area thereby boosting the economy and contributing to the community as a whole. Loyal customers help to expand the company’s business area by word-of-mouth and a pocketful of ER’s business cards.
A key component of the company’s strategy is to continue to add to its ever-increasing product line which currently includes homeowner equipment from Echo and Interstate Batteries, commercial, equipment from Ramrod, Compact S/I Technology, and industrial equipment from Komatsu.
The company is seeking a loan/credit line in the amount of $300,000 for the purpose of expanding the business. Expansion plans include the purchase of additional land and construction of a larger shop/service area, increase rental inventory, purchase of delivery truck, and the hiring of additional personnel including a mechanic and delivery driver. Projected revenues for Year 1 to Year 3 are $210,000, $420,000, and $840,000, respectively.
ER’s mission is to become THE exclusive full-service equipment rental, sales, and service company in upper and lower Denton Parish with the ability to service the surrounding parishes of Memphis, Knoxville, Grand Prairie, Plano, Garland, Irvine, and Riverside. Therefore the company’s strategy is to create a limited geographical niche for itself where there are no potential competitors.
ER’s vision is to continue to expand its service to other areas. The company’s coverage area is constantly increasing, as the areas are becoming aware of the company’s presence.
