H&K Equipment, a Pennsylvania-based materials handling company, is expanding its presence in West Virginia with the opening of a new facility in Beverly.
H&K Equipment president George Koch says the renovated 8,000 sqft. (745 sqm) industrial building, which H&K purchased in 2022, is part of a wider expansion in the state.
"Once everyone is settled in the Beverly building, our next goal is to look for other opportunities in the state. We recently opened a sales office in Huntington. We are considering opening another facility to expand our coverage in West Virginia's southwest."
The new facility in Beverly includes new shop and warehouse spaces, additional office space, new floors and concrete, a new roof, and an overhaul of the parking area and storage yard, with more shop space to be installed in coming months.
H&K Equipment West Virginia administrator Ashley Wamsley says the new facility was a significant upgrade from its former leased garage.
The company sells and rents materials handling equipment in sizes ranging from pallet jacks to forklifts with lift capacities in excess of 100,000 lb. (45,359 kg). The company also provides onsite repair and service for a spectrum of mobile machinery, including agricultural and mining equipment.
H&K Equipment is the flagship company of the H&K Equipment Group, which operates in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York and New Hampshire.
