Volvo Construction Equipment Rents, Asheville, N.C., last week announced the signing of a franchise agreement for Volvo equipment rental centers in the Dallas metropolitan area.
Smithco Enterprises, LLC, of McKinney, Texas, has entered into a Volvo CE Rents franchise agreement to own and operate a Volvo CE Rents center in McKinney, a suburb of Dallas. The new center will open for business within the next few weeks. This is the second Volvo CE Rents franchise contract completed for the Texas market in the last 30 days; in mid-June, contracts were announced for the establishment of Volvo CE Rents franchises in Houston.
John Smith, principal owner of Smithco Enterprises, was formerly with Prime Equipment and Rental Service Corp., major rental companies in the United States.
“The key to success in our market,” said Smith, “will be the industry experience and business strength of our management group, the ability to provide the very best in customer service and tools for a variety of applications, and the benefits provided by the Volvo name and that company’s very comprehensive rental model features.”
The Smithco Volvo CE Rents franchise is independently owned and operated, as are all the franchises within the unique Volvo Construction Equipment rental program.
Volvo CE Rents began its equipment rental franchise initiative in 2001. It has rental centers open in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, California, Tennessee, Ohio, South Carolina, Louisiana, New York, Minnesota, Arkansas, New Jersey, Alabama, Kentucky, Illinois, New Mexico, Washington, Pennsylvania – and, soon, Texas. Additional Volvo CE Rents centers will open within the next few months in three major Mississippi markets. In addition to these franchises, the company has franchise agreements signed with other North America business interests seeking independently owned and operated franchise opportunities in the equipment rental business.
