Two national magazines have named Volvo Rents to their annual “best-of” lists for 2007. Entrepreneur Magazine’s January issue, which hits newsstands December 25, lists Volvo Rents No. 357 on its annual Franchise 500 listing.
Franchise Times listed Volvo Rents No. 197 on its Top 200 list, which published in October.
“We are extremely proud to be listed among the world’s best franchise companies,” said Barry Natwick, president and CEO of Volvo Rents. “We celebrate our franchise owners and the entrepreneurial spirit that resonates within each one of them. Their passion for and dedication to the construction industry is what has allowed us to grow our customer base by 50 percent per annum during the last five years.”
Volvo Rents, based in Asheville, N.C., is the only equipment rental company to make either list. Volvo Rents, also ranked No. 17 on the RER 100, has 77 rental branches in North America, 66 in Europe and one in Mexico.
