Hertz expands equipment rental business in Saudi
Riyadh, May 13, 2014
Hertz Dayim Equipment Rental has opened a greenfield location in Riyadh to serve Central Province-based multi-billion dollar initiatives in infrastructure, government, construction, event services and industrial sectors.
As part of its many activities in the region, the company is now a registered vendor with multiple contractors of the $22 billion Riyadh Metro project, a six-line, 85-station public transport construction initiative taking place over a five year period.
Similar to the company's Dammam and Jeddah locations in the Eastern and Western Provinces respectively, the Riyadh operation rents and sells equipment and tools as well as providing comprehensive fleet management services.
Hertz-Dayim's portfolio includes equipment for earth moving, aerial, material handling, power, electrical, and compressor requirements. The company also offers its clients safe operation equipment training.
Lois Boyd, president, Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation, said: "Hertz Dayim Equipment Rental, the joint venture of Hertz Equipment Rental and Dayim Systems, is continuing its rapid growth across Saudi Arabia.
“The Central Province is considered a strong market opportunity due to massive spending on large-scale urban infrastructure projects. This includes the Riyadh Metro project as well as multi-billion dollar initiatives for the financial district, medical cities, commercial centres and highways and bridges. Our aim is to provide first class, value-added equipment rental solutions to customers in the region."
Chairman of Hertz-Dayim Equipment Rental, Prince Khalid bin Bandar bin Sultan, said: "With branches now in all three major regions of Saudi Arabia, we will be able to serve a wide variety of projects and clients across the Kingdom.
“The new branch in Riyadh is positioned to meet the requirements of the major urban infrastructure projects which are currently underway including the much-lauded metro rail system initiative for the capital. We also plan to continue our expansion and open smaller regional centres in Saudi Arabia to complete our nationwide presence, and move closer to our vision to become the number one equipment rental company of Saudi Arabia."
The HERC Riyadh location offers a broad range of equipment and tools, including backhoes, skid steers, straight and articulating manlifts, telehandlers and construction and industrial fork lifts, among others.
Equipment comes from manufacturers including Atlas Copco, Case, Doosan, Genie, Himoinsa, Ingersoll Rand, JCB, JLG, Miller, and Wacker.
Located on the Khurais highway, one of the busiest highways in the Saudi capital, the new facility features a 7,000 sq m yard, shop and branch office. – TradeArabia News Service
