New Bennett Equipment Location in Hiawassee, Georgia, Joins Takeuchi's Dealer Network

ATLANTA, GA — Takeuchi-US has added a new Bennett Equipment & Supply Co. branch in Hiawassee, Georgia, to its growing North American dealer network. This is Bennett Equipment’s fourth location and its first in Georgia, joining others in Piedmont, Roebuck, and Westminster, South Carolina.

The Bennett Equipment location in Hiawassee will now carry Takeuchi’s full line of compact excavators, wheel loaders, and track loaders for sale and rental. This additional location will also offer replacement parts and serve as authorized Takeuchi equipment repair centers for customers throughout the surrounding area.

“Takeuchi has been one of our trusted partners for years,” said Eddie Bennett, President of Bennett Equipment & Supply. “They integrate quality into everything they do, from their equipment to their dealer and customer support. Over the years, our customers throughout South Carolina have come to appreciate the reliability, durability, performance, and comfort they get from their Takeuchi machines. Now, we’re looking forward to helping our new customers in Hiawassee experience the positive difference Takeuchi equipment can make on their productivity and bottom lines.”

Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Piedmont, South Carolina, Bennett Equipment is a locally owned, full-line construction equipment rental and sales company. The company provides equipment, sales, service, and supplies to the construction industry, specializing in the masonry and concrete segment.

“Bennett Equipment & Supply is an outstanding company, and we’re very pleased that they’re now representing the Takeuchi line at four locations,” said Joseph Funk, Regional Business Manager for Takeuchi-US. “Eddie and his team have been great to work with, and we’re excited to help them introduce Takeuchi throughout the Hiawassee area.”
