US-based EquipmentShare is to open a new facility in Trotwood, Ohio, as part of a planned expansion into the Dayton region.

The company has acquired an 11.6-acre site in Trotwood’s Industrial and Commerce Park, which will offer a wide range of equipment, such as general rental equipment, aerial lifts, heavy dirt equipment and power solutions.

The total investment in equipment and property improvements of the new site, its third to open in the state, is projected to be more than $20 million and will create 25 jobs, according to EquipmentShare.

EquipmentShare CEO and co-founder Jabbok Schlacks said, “After seeing the market respond positively to the EquipmentShare difference at our two other Ohio locations, we were driven to serve even more customers throughout the state.

“We plan to show Trotwood what we’re all about: reliable customer service and next-generation fleet equipped with construction technology that accelerates productivity.”

This project is a result of the collaboration efforts among EquipmentShare, GATED Properties Global (GPG), the City of Trotwood, and the Trotwood Community Improvement Corporation (TCIC).

In its role in the collaboration, the TCIC and development partner GPG worked together to market the availability of the property and worked with EquipmentShare to subdivide the land into the space needed for development.

Chad Downing, TCIC Executive Director said, “We are honored to have EquipmentShare select the city of Trotwood for its Dayton region expansion. EquipmentShare is going to become a new member of Trotwood’s business community and we look forward to supporting their growth.”

The decision to open the facility in Trotwood is the latest move from EquipmentShare in its growth strategy. This year alone the company has opened more than 20 new branches in strategic locations, with up to 40 more stores set to open by the end of 2023 as part of a focus on acquiring land in new markets for greenfield projects.
