On April 13, Thompson Machinery hosted a Cat Rental Store grand opening at our Jackson, TN location. Over 150 guests attended the event, which spotlighted store renovations that have added a new Rental Store area and gave customers a chance to meet our Jackson-based Rental Store staff.
The event featured a barbecue lunch and live music, along with giveaways items for each attendee. Guests also had the opportunity to win one of several special door prizes, including a Yeti cooler, Cat portable generators, and a multi-drawer Cat toolbox.
On display were numerous Cat machines and specialized rental equipment. Representatives from Caterpillar, JLG, Skyjack, and Multiquip were on hand to answer questions about equipment and applications.
Mike Rattan, Thompson’s Cat Rental Store General Manager, says, “This was a great event that gave us the chance to see many of our local customers. The Jackson store has been here for nearly twenty years, so we wanted to hold this event to highlight the addition of a formal Cat Rental Store and local Rental staff at the facility.
“Our guests were able to see that we now provide aerial equipment, general line machines, and specialty machines to help with new construction, industrial work and even homeowner rental needs. We now offer a full line, from start to finish, for our customers’ projects.”
