LAS VEGAS - Ahern Rentals continued its expansion and redeployment of assets last month by opening branches in Reno, Nev., Tucson, Ariz., and Fremont, Calif.
In addition to being part of a long-planned expansion effort, the moves were made because of the completion of Las Vegas casino-hotel projects for which the rental company was the exclusive equipment provider.
Ahern official Alicia Guffey told RER that the Tucson and Fremont branches will handle aerial equipment exclusively, while Reno will feature general rentals as well as high reach.
In other Ahern news, the company moved its recently opened Phoenix branch to nearby Tempe, Ariz.
Ahern Rentals, No. 18 on the RER 100, now has 19 branches - 10 in Nevada, five in California, two in Arizona, and one each in Colorado and Utah.
