Hugg & Hall Equipment Co. of Little Rock expanded its footprint with the purchase of Westquip Inc. of Oklahoma City. Terms of the deal weren't announced.
Formed in 1982, Westquip is a full-line material handling dealership selling new and used industrial equipment. The company is touted as offering the largest selection of rental forklifts in Oklahoma.
“This dealership addition, strengthens Hugg & Hall’s commitment to provide the highest level of customer satisfaction for the markets we serve in Arkansas, Louisiana, east Texas, southern Missouri and now Oklahoma,” said John Hugg, president of Hugg & Hall Equipment Co.
