Hertz Equipment Rental Corp. last week announced the grand opening of its Downtown Toronto, Ontario, general rental facility, which opens May 2, and its Kannapolis, N.C. general rental facility, which opened Feb. 25.
The Toronto facility has a 1,500-square-foot showroom and 1,600-square-foot shop area located on a 1/3-acre lot in downtown Toronto.
The Concord, N.C. facility is near the NC Research Campus Project.
The grand openings of HERC Downtown Toronto and HERC Kannapolis are part of the company’s general rental program expansion, which the company began in 2003 in support of its commitment to increase services and products for small, medium and large contractors as well as homeowners. The company added 23 general rental locations in 2007 as part of its planned expansion in that line of equipment rental and currently has more than 100 general rental locations throughout the United States and Canada.
The new HERC locations offer a broad range of products, including roto-tillers, floor sanders and pressure washers, trenchers, paint sprayers, ladders, pumps and scaffolding. They also offers a wide assortment of construction and industrial equipment from manufacturers such as Case, Genie, JLG, John Deere, Bobcat, Wacker and Stihl.
A wholly owned subsidiary of The Hertz Corp., Park Ridge, N.J.-based HERC is No. 4 on the RER 100 with 290 locations in the U.S. and Canada, and an additional 85 locations in France and Spain.
