Gorman-Rupp has named Riggs Rental as its newest rental customer. As well as being a rental account, Riggs has also agreed to become the Gorman-Rupp construction and agricultural equipment distributor for the entire state of Arkansas.        

Riggs Rental is a division of Riggs CAT, which became a CAT dealer in 1927. Riggs Rental has eight locations covering the state of Arkansas. Each location carries a complete line-up of rental equipment including excavators, air compressors, aerial lifts, generators, light towers, skid steer loaders and now the industry-leading Gorman-Rupp pump line, powered by Caterpillar diesel engines.

Jamie Schoenian, Gorman-Rupp national rental sales manager, said this about Riggs, "Gorman-Rupp is excited about partnering with an outstanding organization like Riggs Rental. Riggs is fully committed to being the number one provider of rental services for the entire state. They have dedicated a team member to be their Pump and Shoring Specialist to ensure the new rental line will get the attention needed to be a successful addition to the Riggs rental fleet. With eight locations across Arkansas, Riggs will also give Gorman-Rupp the best distribution coverage we have had in the state for our construction and agricultural pump lines."

Gary O'Keane, Riggs CAT VP of Rental, said, "This product line was a no-brainer for us. Our number-one priority each day is to find job site solutions for every customer. These products are recognized as the best in their industries and will solve problems as well as create another avenue to customer satisfaction in a timely and affordable way. Just another way 'We Do More Than Dirt.'"
