Volvo Rents has acquired former Volvo Rents franchise Sheffer Rents of Central Pennsylvania, a single-location construction equipment rental company based in York, Pa. The rental center was founded by Volvo Rents franchisees Clint Sheffer and Susan Renoll in 2010, serving the central Pennsylvania market.

“Sheffer Rents’ commitment to customer care and local decision-making has enabled Clint and Susan to assemble an excellent team that is fully committed to the VIP-level of customer experience that Volvo Rents has become known for,” said Mike Crouch, vice president of business development for Volvo Rents.

A recent BidClerk Construction Index report indicated that public sector construction in Pennsylvania’s major metro markets increased 19.8 percent in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the same quarter a year ago. The report also showed an 11.3-percent year-over-year construction growth. Six of the 26 counties surveyed by the index fall in the York store’s service area.

“We have geared our operations to meet the demands of a hard-hitting, no-nonsense, fiscally responsible client,” said Sheffer.

Volvo Rents, based in Shippensburg, Pa., is No. 21 on the RER 100.
