Thompson Machinery Opens CAT Rental Store in Memphis

Staff | September 28, 2010

Thompson Machinery held a grand opening for their Memphis rental store located at 4517 South Mendenhall Road last October. It is the first stand-alone rental store for Thompson Machinery in Memphis.

Branch Manager Sid Bounds said, "We opened this store to branch out into the community for a bigger presence of our rental equipment as a separate location, and we have had a great reception."

Thompson carries not only a complete line of Caterpillar equipment in their rental inventory, but also a broad range of brand-name allied equipment and hand tools. These resources can be rented daily, weekly or monthly.

Thompson Machinery is the authorized Caterpillar dealership for western Tennessee and northern Mississippi. Their corporate headquarters in Nashville (LaVergne) and regional headquarters in Memphis serve as centers for extensive parts inventory, complete service facilities, large new and rental equipment inventory, and total sales and support services. Thompson maintains established CAT Rental Stores in Nashville, Memphis, Jackson, Manchester, Mt. Juliet, and Clarksville, TN; and Tupelo, MS. Branch stores are located in Camden, Clarksville, Cookeville, Jackson, Manchester, and Memphis, TN; and in Columbus, Greenwood and Tupelo, MS.
