Hertz Equipment Rental Corp. has opened a new facility in Bismarck, N.D., the state capital, to deliver specialty equipment for oil producers, refineries, commercial construction, agriculture, wind farming and mining. The new Bismarck facility joins neighboring Hertz Equipment Rental branches in Dickinson and Williston, North Dakota and Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The company is also serving onsite with companies in the area.

“The city of Bismarck and the surrounding area are an exciting land of opportunity owing to the strong, diverse economic development in the area, including the Bakken oil fields as well as the construction, agriculture, power and mining sectors,” said Lois Boyd, HERC group president. “More and more companies in the region are realizing the compelling economic benefits for equipment rental instead of ownership. As well as providing the right, state-of-the-art equipment for the job, we provide comprehensive fleet maintenance solutions to free our customers to focus on their core areas of expertise and add value to their bottom line.”

The Hertz Equipment Bismarck facility provides a wide range of industrial and commercial fleet for rent or sale including aerial, compaction and paving, earth moving, heaters, power generators, forklifts and other material handling equipment. In addition the location features a retail showroom and offers rentals and sales of small tools, equipment and safety supplies. 

HERC, based in Park Ridge, N.J., has approximately 360 locations in the United States, Canada, China, France, Spain and Saudi Arabia. The company is No. 3 on the RER 100.
