Volvo Rents 'Digging' Its Way Into Western Pennsylvania

Provider of small-to-medium sized construction equipment acquires Equipment Rental Services, LLC; Looks to capitalize on projected growth of local construction spending

October 10, 2011 // Franchising.com // Asheville, NC – Volvo Rents announces the acquisition of Equipment Rental Services, LLC, a single location construction equipment rental company based in Burgettstown, PA.  Previously co-owned by Alex & Tim Paris with Andy Miller, the center is located at 108 Starpointe Blvd. in Burgettstown, PA.

Anchored by an increase in local construction spending that is projected to total more than $12 billion in the Pittsburgh marketplace between 2012 and 2016, Volvo Rents is looking to grab a bigger piece of the construction equipment rental pie that is currently up for grabs in Western Pennsylvania. To capitalize on the economic upturn, Volvo Rents is embarking on a new course, where it will not only operate a franchise network of rental stores, but also manage and grow a network of company-owned stores.

In addition to Volvo Rents’ expanding line of Volvo compact equipment – such as backhoe and skid steer loaders, compact wheel loaders, compact excavators and compaction equipment – the rental centers carry a comprehensive line of essential equipment and tools for the construction, commercial, industrial and homeowner markets. The focus is on daily, weekly and monthly rentals.

“Equipment Rental Services, LLC have already set the bar for customer service and expectations extremely high in Western Pennsylvania,” said Mike Crouch, Vice President of Business Development for Volvo Rents. “This newest acquisition will greatly aid our brand’s growth across the state.”
