Lucy Thompson Marsh, President and CEO of Thompson Tractor said, “We are excited to be a part of this vibrant industrial area and are glad to be closer to our great customers in Cullman County!”

The conversation about adding a new Thompson Rents store in Hanceville first started in July of 2021, and construction was officially completed in March of 2023. The building is 7,500 square feet and positioned on three acres of land just one-fourth a mile east of I-65 off of exit 299. The Thompson team worked with many city and county officials during the building process whom they praised for their attitude and work ethic.

Charlie Stevens, VP of Earthmoving Sales and Rental at Thompson, said, “I’d like to personally thank Stanley Kennedy of the Cullman County Economic Development Board for being great to work with and all of the County Commissioners we had the pleasure of doing business with during this process. They were extremely helpful and professional. Bailey Harris and all of their subcontractors and suppliers did a great job from start to finish. Finally, I want to specifically thank Scotty Hooper. We wouldn’t have gotten here without him.”
