Volvo Rents expands into Pompano Beach, Fla., with fourth franchise
South Florida economic forecast indicates steady growth in non-residential, infrastructure construction through 2012
February 12, 2008 // Franchising.com // (ASHEVILLE, N.C.) - Volvo Rents, owned by Enrique Irizzary of CASCO Rental, LLC, and managed by Rick Owens, is excited to announce its intention to expand further into the South Florida market with the opening of a store in Pompano Beach at 3120 NW 16th Terrace. Their other locations include stores serving the Fort Myers, Port St. Lucie and Tampa markets.
Volvo Rents' move into Pompano Beach comes at a time when the Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach-Deerfield commercial market is growing, despite 2007's national decline in residential construction. Construction forecasts for the area indicate steady growth across all non-residential categories, including highways and roads, industrial and underground through 2012, according to InfoTech Market Research, a marketing research and consulting company specializing in the construction industry.
"In anticipation of this opportunity, we want to make sure we are positioned to better service our customers in Palm Beach, Broward and Dade counties," said Irizzary, owner. "The Pompano Beach location, managed by industry veteran Jason Asuncion, is poised to meet the Volvo Rents' customer service objective of 'More Care. In Every Rental.'"
The new Volvo Rents location carries a comprehensive line of essential equipment for the construction, commercial and industrial markets. "With a new, $15 million fleet, which includes large earth-moving equipment and general rental equipment - plus our staff of 30 employees - we are positioned to assist in South Florida's future growth," said Owens, general manager.
The Volvo Rents franchise program covers all aspects of an operating business model. Features of the program include use of the Volvo brand, financial assistance, a fleet purchasing program for non-Volvo products, a Volvo Rents proprietary software program, operational support, comprehensive training as well as facility design and regional and local marketing.
