US-based rental power company United Rentals has opened seven offices in the US and one in Canada.
Four US branches will provide engineered power, heating, cooling and ventilation solutions for commercial, industrial and governmental customers, and disaster recovery services.
The offices in Brantford, Ontario and Beacon Falls, Connecticut, will offer engineered excavation support and confined space entry systems as well as worker training while two offices will provide temporary and long-term onsite tool management, including inventory tracking, inspections and maintenance.
"We're continuing to implement a major expansion of our specialty lines of business, following significant growth in 2013. These eight openings are part of a broader plan for 2014 that will include additions to all of our specialty lines, including the pump network we acquired in April," said Paul McDonnel, senior vice president specialty operations at United Rentals.
The company now has 883 rental branches in the US and Canada.
Earlier this year, the power provider acquired power and HVAC assets of equipment rental services company Blue-Stream Services, which operates in the Gulf of Mexico region of the USA.
