SMS Rents has expanded its presence in Ontario with new branch locations in the nation’s capital Ottawa and Mississauga, part of the greater Toronto metropolitan area.
The company has now opened three Ontario locations in as many months, having opened a branch in Stoney Creek this past summer. SMS Rents, formerly known as Komatsu Rents, now has 13 stores in Ontario and Quebec.
The Ottawa store is a 9,000-square-foot facility, and the Mississauga facility is 12,000 square feet, said SMS Rents president Marcel Langlois. Langlois said the two new stores provide a bridge between successful operations in the company’s strategic regions.
“We are well established in the GTA and Montreal,” said Langlois. “Customer response to our new organization has been very encouraging. Ottawa is a logical next step for us as we strive to bring our Job Ready rental service to customers throughout southern Ontario.”
The Mississauga store strengthens plans for the company’s further growth throughout the Toronto area, expanding service capabilities between the recently opened Stoney Creek store and the well-established SMS Rents store in Guelph, just west of Toronto. The region is also supported by the SMS Rents Heavy Equipment Centre based in Brampton, Ontario.
SMS Rents named Robert “Bob” Taylor regional manager for southern Ontario.
SMS Rents offers a full line of rental equipment from aerial lifts to light tools and compaction, as well as complete sales and service for the Komatsu Utility line of compact equipment, as well as a range of contractor supplies.
