Anchored by an increase in local construction spending that is projected to total more than $6.2 billion between 2012 and 2016 in the Greater Denver area, Volvo Rents is looking to grab a bigger piece of the construction equipment rental pie that is currently up for grabs.
A worldwide provider of small-to-medium sized construction equipment, Volvo Rents recently opened a new company-owned rental center at 1200 W. Dartmouth Ave in Englewood.
“Despite the weakened economy, the construction equipment rental industry is projected to be one of the fastest growing industries in North America, as more people are choosing to rent rather than commit to capital expenditures,” said Ian Bull, branch manager of the new Englewood Volvo Rents location. “Our strong brand recognition, coupled with the growing demand for construction equipment rental, allows us to look to the future with great enthusiasm.”
The new rental center is Volvo Rents’ third in the state of Colorado – joining existing locations in Colorado Springs and Longmont – and will service all of the Front Range area.
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 center carries 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.
The Englewood Volvo Rents location will be open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
“It’s estimated the local Denver area will spend nearly $4.5 billion on nonresidential construction in 2012. With our new Englewood Volvo Rents location within a 15 mile radius of nearly 1,400 potential customers, we anticipate making a lasting impression on the local Denver construction industry,” Bull added.
