Equipment Inc., West Jackson, Mississippi, has expanded with three new dealer locations, giving its customers more access to Doosan machines, parts and service.
The new Equipment Inc. dealerships add to the company’s existing locations that serve customers across Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
Equipment Inc. began its partnership with Suwanee, Georgia-based Doosan in 2015 at its location in Shreveport, Louisiana. In 2017, the company expanded to Jackson and has continued to grow since then. The company has added dealerships in Hattiesburg, Mississippi; Theodore, Alabama; and Texarkana, Texas.
In Mississippi, the Hattiesburg location will serve as a satellite location focused on parts and service. Scot Akins, owner of Equipment Inc., says this addition was a perfect fit since it sits about halfway between the company's Jackson and Mobile, Alabama, dealerships. The addition means the company will be able to service both markets to supplement its full-service dealerships. The location in Texarkana, which is also a parts and service location, serves a similar purpose.
The Theodore dealership will function as a full-service location in the Mobile area. Customers will have access to Doosan machines, including articulated dump trucks; crawler, wheel and miniexcavators; material handlers; log loaders; and wheel loaders.
“We’re excited to continue to grow with Doosan,” Akins says. “We feel like it’s going to be a very good partnership and we want to continue to look in other markets as they become available. And we’re excited to have a full offering for our customers across our existing footprint.”
“We’re pleased with Equipment Incorporated and how the company has prospered in the South,” David Morice, Doosan regional director, says. “Whether it’s a full-service Doosan location or a parts and service satellite store, we’re growing the Doosan dealer network to provide unmatched service to our customers.”
