Volvo Rents, Shippensburg, Pa., has opened a new rental center at 16000 Brookpark Road in Cleveland.
The new store is Volvo Rents’ fifth in the state of Ohio — joining existing locations in Columbus, Dayton, Hamilton and Zanesville — and will service the Cleveland metropolitan area, including Shaker Heights, Painesville, Lorain, Strongsville and Elyria, among others.
“As the recession abates, 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 Mike Crouch, vice president of business development for Volvo Rents. “Our strong brand recognition, coupled with the growing demand for construction equipment rental, allows us to look to the future with great enthusiasm.”
“We believe there is tremendous opportunity in the market, and specifically in the state of Ohio,” said Larry Kirkpatrick, Volvo Rents’ Midwest division manager. “It just seems like dollars are moving through Cleveland and people are willing to invest here for growth.”
