EquipmentShare opens two new California locations
By Belinda Smart19 January 2021
US rental and connected equipment company EquipmentShare is expanding in California with a new site in LA and one in San Diego.
The Los Angeles site is at 15495 Arrow Route in Fontana, and the San Diego location is at 2590 Main Street in Chula Vista.
They are the first sites from the company to service the Los Angeles and San Diego markets, offering new rental fleet inventory including general heavy equipment, earthmoving, access equipment and specialty infrastructure equipment, along with EquipmentShare’s own smart jobsite technology.
EquipmentShare rental machines are fitted with tracking hardware and rental customers can choose to monitor equipment utilisation, GPS location, fuel usage, maintenance history and upcoming service for each asset.
Both new locations are operated by General Manager Steve Beilman, who is growing the teams at both outlets and is hiring mechanics, service technicians, sales, delivery drivers and technology installers.
“I’m especially excited to enter the greater San Diego market and hire a lot of local professionals, including service members who are entering civilian life and veterans,” Beilman said. “San Diego has a large military population; we’re located near many bases. Not only do we hope to serve those bases as their preferred equipment rental provider, but we’re also on a mission to hire veterans.”
In honour of Veterans Day in 2020, EquipmentShare committed to growing its veteran employment by 50% over the next two years. The company also announced a partnership with Hire Heroes USA, an organisation that assists veterans with employment resources.
