United Rentals announced a major expansion of its operations in Charlotte, N.C., with plans to bring 150 new jobs to the city to support continued business growth for the long term. The company has completed a long-term lease for a new corporate campus in University Research Park northeast of downtown, with plans to occupy the 100,000-square-foot building mid-2020.
The United Rentals expansion will create new Charlotte-based jobs, with roles in the company’s Accounting Services, Credit & Billing, Customer Care, Inside Sales, Payroll, and Tax teams. United Rentals begins recruitment for the new roles in Charlotte starting this week. The company will also build a command center for the United Rentals Emergency Response Team in the new building.
“Charlotte has a terrific talent base that can help us support our growing business and serve our customers,” said Craig Pintoff, EVP, chief administrative and legal officer, United Rentals. “The new Charlotte campus demonstrates our commitment to providing a world-class, collaborative work environment for our employees and reflects the optimism we all share for a bright future for United Rentals.”
United Rentals will hold a hiring event at the new facility on Wednesday, October 23, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at 10330 David Taylor Dr. The event will feature interviews on the spot for a variety of roles.
