Thompson CAT Opens Cat Rental Store in Jackson
JACKSON, TN — Thompson Machinery hosted a Cat Rental Store grand opening at their Jackson, Tennessee, location. Close to 200 guests attended the event, which spotlighted store renovations that have added a new Rental Store area as well as upgrading entry, showroom, parts area, and gave customers a chance to meet their Jackson, Tennessee, -based Rental Store staff.
The event featured a barbecue lunch and live music, along with giveaway 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, said, “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.”
