Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation (HERC) has launched a new heavy industrial equipment rental facility in Joplin, Mo.
The company said the new branch will serve construction and commercial markets in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. The branch will provide equipment for rent or sale including aerial, compaction and paving, earthmoving, heaters, power generators, forklifts and other material handling equipment and safety supplies.
“HERC set up temporary facilities in Joplin two years ago as an extension of our Springfield, Mo., operations to support the city’s ongoing redevelopment efforts following the devastating tornado of May 2011," said Brian MacDonald, Hertz interim CEO.
MacDonald said the company provided the rental of heavy industrial equipment to assist with the rebuilding of many business facilities and houses.
"We are honoured to open a permanent location in Joplin to continue serving the community’s rebuilding initiatives as well as provide support to the surrounding areas in Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas. The new Joplin branch also joins a network of neighbouring HERC operations including Springfield, Mo., and Springdale, Ark.," he added.
