New US rental branch for HERC

By Helen Wright28 October 2014

Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation (HERC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hertz, has launched a new heavy industrial equipment rental facility in Joplin, Missouri, US.

The company said the new branch would serve construction and commercial markets in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. It said it would provide equipment for rent or sale including aerial, compaction and paving, earth moving, heaters, power generators, forklifts and other material handling equipment and safety supplies.

Brian MacDonald, Hertz interim CEO, said, “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."

Mr 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, Missouri and Springdale, Arkansas," he added.
