United Rentals opened branches in Chester, Pa., and Weldon Springs, Mo., last week.
The Chester branch will specialize in pump, power and HVAC equipment rental.
“Chester’s unique position along the Northeast corridor, and its access to two major interstate highways, as well as air, water and rail routes, has stimulated tremendous growth in the non-residential construction market here,” said United branch manager David Arnholt.
The branch will specialize in temporary power generation, pumps, fluid handling, electrical testing and climate control for commercial and industrial use.
The Weldon branch will concentrate on serving customers throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area. “Weldon Spring has experienced tremendous growth in both residential and non-residential construction in the past five years,” said branch manager Nick Reitz.
The largest rental company in North America, United has more than 760 branches in 48 U.S. states, 10 Canadian provinces and Mexico.
