EquipmentShare will hold a grand opening celebration at its new Grand Prairie, Texas, rental center, Tuesday Oct. 3. The ribbon cutting will begin at 11:30 a.m. at 1717 W. Shady Grove Road, followed by lunch and tours of the new facility.

“Texas has and will continue to be an important part of our business,” said CEO and co-founder Jabbok Schlacks. “Grand Prairie was the third location we opened in our company’s history — so it’s an extra special day to commemorate the new building but also to reaffirm our commitment to invest and grow right here in Texas.”

The Grand Prairie location will offer next-generation equipment solutions and run the business with its proprietary technology, T3. Constructed and completed this year, the new 15,953-square-foot building is a modern design that embodies the progressive mindset of the company. It includes 10 service bays with 10 large workstations, an equipment wash bay, a parts department and a 3,000-square-foot retail area. The new $3.7 million facility shares an equipment yard with the existing building located on Roy Orr Boulevard, which will now serve as the training center for onboarding new team members and an institutional learning hub for the company’s continuing education initiatives. EquipmentShare, founded in 2015, opened its doors in Grand Prairie that same year. In total, EquipmentShare has 22 facilities in Texas.

“The Grand Prairie Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to celebrate EquipmentShare's expansion with the opening of a new location. We extend our warmest congratulations on this latest achievement and look forward to witnessing the positive impact their expansion will have on our community,” Grand Prairie Chamber of Commerce president & CEO Michelle Madden said. “We are proud to have them as a valued member of our Chamber, and we are excited about the opportunities it will bring to our workforce, economy and the EquipmentShare family.”

“This location is the first in a series with our company’s new rental branch look and feel,” said Grand Prairie general manager James Ferguson. “We offer reliable tech-powered rentals to builders in this community and across the great state of Texas. When they walk into this space, we want them to experience right away that EquipmentShare is the place to go for the best equipment solutions on the planet. We also want our team members to be proud of their work home, and we believe this new space accomplishes that while offering plenty of room to grow for years to come.”

Ferguson brings years of experience to the role, helping to build the success of EquipmentShare in Grand Prairie. Building up and bettering the communities EquipmentShare serves is also part of the company’s mission and People First culture. At the grand opening, the team plans to present a check of $3,500 to the Grand Prairie Family YMCA to support its efforts to provide a safe place for area youth to be kids.

“We are proud to serve the Grand Prairie community with programs to help build a healthy spirit, mind and body from a values-based foundation and we are so proud to have partners like EquipmentShare. It takes like-minded organizations who have strong values and are willing to invest in them for our community to thrive. We could not be more grateful that EquipmentShare has chosen us to be their vehicle for delivering our shared values to our community,” said Grand Prairie Family YMCA executive director Michael Garcia.

The Grand Prairie branch is hiring for various roles, including service technicians, drivers and sales representatives. The company offers benefits such as tool reimbursement for service jobs,  boot allowance, monthly family dinner night for each employee in the company and 16 hours of annual volunteer time off.
