Hertz Dayim Equipment Rental has expanded in Saudi Arabia by opening a greenfield location in Jeddah. The new location will serve Western Province-based petrochemical, oil and gas, government, military, construction, event services, industrial and emergency response sectors.
Similar to Hertz’ Damman location, the Jeddah operations provides equipment rental and fleet management services. Its equipment fleet includes earth moving, aerial, material handling, power, electrical, compressors and more.
Saudi Arabia’s Western Province is considered a strong growth opportunity because of heavy construction and industrialization. According to the Zawya Projects Monitor, $230 billion of projects are underway or in planning throughout the Western Province of Saudi Arabia, including Jeddah, Makkah, Medina and other nearby cities.
“Hertz Dayim Equipment Rental, the joint venture of Hertz Equipment Rental and Dayim Systems, is continuing its rapid growth across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in order to meet strong demand,” said Lois Boyd, group president, Hertz Equipment Rental Corp. “The aim of our new Jeddah operations is to provide customers a first-class, value-added equipment rental supplier in the Western Province of Saudi Arabia. The move also positions Hertz-Dayim for further strong growth opportunities in the region.”
“The new branch in Jeddah will be ideally placed to cater to the equipment needs of the large number of infrastructure and construction projects in the Western Province,” said HRH Prince Khalid bin Bandar bin Sultan, chairman of Hertz-Dayim Equipment Rental. “This includes landmark projects such as the Jeddah, Makkah and Medina Metro, Kingdom Tower, the airport expansions and the economic cities. We will continue to expand and invest in this business to create a premier equipment rental company fully aligned with the needs of the industry in Saudi Arabia.”
Hertz-Dayim offers equipment from Atlas Copco, Case, Doosan, Genie, Himoinsa, Ingersoll Rand, JCB, JLG, Miller, Wacker Neuson and others.
