Volvo Construction Equipment Rents last week announced the opening of a new Volvo Rents equipment rental center in New Braunfels, Texas, in the greater San Antonio area.
The Tool Belt, LP, owned by Kelly Ryan, opened its first Volvo Rents center in Pflugerville, Texas, in 2005, followed by a second Volvo Rents center in Buda, Texas, in 2007. All three locations carry, in addition to Volvo construction equipment, a comprehensive line of essential equipment and tools for the construction, commercial, industrial and homeowner markets.
“The additional third store allows our reach to extend from North of Austin well into San Antonio,” said Ryan. “I view New Braunfels as a starting point to seamless service between the markets. You can expect to see more locations in the San Antonio market in years to come.”
The Volvo Rents franchise program was designed by Volvo Construction Equipment and covers all aspects of an operating business model. Features include use of the Volvo brand, financial assistance, a fleet purchasing program, a Volvo Rents proprietary software program, operational support and guidance, comprehensive training in systems, sales, service, and management as well as facility design and regional and local marketing. Principal Volvo products for its rental centers include its extensive line of compact excavators and wheel loaders, backhoes and skid-steer loaders.
