Buffalo, NY, June 24, 2018– H&R Construction Parts & Equipment, Inc. agreed to acquire American Independent, Inc. on Saturday, June 23rd. In an ongoing commitment to providing their customers with the best customer experience in the industry, the move once again reinforces their commitment to be “More than just parts” but also a provider of solutions to their customers. The acquisition was timed to align with American Independent’s 30th Anniversary, which is being celebrated this month.

Joining the two companies made perfect sense.”

H&R Construction Equipment Parts has four locations in North America. Operating out of their headquarters in Buffalo, NY since 1984, additional branches are located in Riverside, CA, Lawrenceville (Atlanta), GA, and Edmonton, AB Canada. Buffalo and Lawrenceville have full production capabilities to deliver products more efficiently globally, with production planned to commence shortly in Riverside.
