Hertz Equipment Rental Corp. celebrated the grand opening of its 5-acre Lubbock, Texas, general rental facility on July 18. The event, which drew more than 600 people, showcased the facility’s showroom and product line, which includes small tools, equipment and contractors’ supplies.
At the grand opening, vendor demonstrations and literature were available, a free lunch was catered, and giveaways were provided on-site. HERC management participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a local radio station broadcasted live from the event.
The grand opening of HERC Lubbock is part of the company’s general rental program expansion, which 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.
HERC’s Lubbock general rental location, the company’s 22nd in Texas, offers a broad range of products, including roto-tillers, floor sanders, trenchers, paint sprayers, ladders, pumps and scaffolding.
Park Ridge, N.J.-based HERC is No. 3 on the RER 100.
