Hertz Equipment Rental Corp. has expanded its Denver operations with a new satellite facility in Cheyenne, Wyo. The Cheyenne branch serves the southern Wyoming and northern Colorado oil plays and also operates onsite at the location of a key customer.

HERC has more than 30 years of experience with oil field clientele, with equipment and services specifically designed for upstream and midstream operations. The company serves several oil and gas plays in North America, including the Bakken, Barnett, Eagle Ford, Haynesville, Marcellus, Permian Basin and Utica areas. HERC works closely with both operating and production companies as well as drilling contractors working within those environments.

“We are continuing to make strategic investments in the oil-and-gas exploration and production sector, one of our strongest industrial business segments,” said Lois Boyd, president of HERC. “As part of this focus, we are very excited to extend our Denver-based equipment rental operations with our new Cheyenne, Wyoming, specialty location to support oil plays in the surrounding area. As always, our mission is to help our customers control costs, expand their revenues, take comprehensive safety measures and maintain compliance.”

The Cheyenne facility offers aerial lifts, earthmoving equipment, forklifts, heaters, hoses, light plants, portable power and power distribution products, specialty pumps and compressors and other oil field-specific fleet. The company can set up onsite operations around the clock with full-time staff where needed to minimize downtime and maximize production. HERC is also offering specialist personnel capable of engineering complete application studies.

HERC, a subsidiary of The Hertz Corp., is based in Park Ridge, N.J., and has about 360 branches in the United States, Canada, China, France, Spain, and Saudi Arabia. HERC is No. 3 on the RER 100.
