27 June 2002 – GE Energy Rentals and Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation have teamed up to provide North American customers with a single source for renting equipment currently available from either company.
Under a new, non-exclusive agreement, GE Energy Rentals power and climate control equipment is available at several Hertz facilities across the United States, with more locations to be added in the coming months. Customers also will be able to place orders at any Hertz location in the US to rent GE
equipment, including generators, heating and cooling systems, and light towers. Hertz equipment rental locations specialize in construction and industrial equipment and vehicle rentals.
“With the new alliance, customers now have one source for their complete rental packages,” said Caroline Reda, president and general manager of GE Energy Rentals. “It will help our business establish a greater presence in markets where Hertz already has strong relationships.”
“The agreement with GE further expands Hertz Equipment Rental’s extensive product offerings, and the GE-Hertz partnership will generate opportunities with customers across a broader spectrum of businesses and industries,” said
Gerry Plescia, president of Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation. “Customers now have direct and easy access to the full resources of both rental companies.”
GE Energy Rentals, based in Atlanta, was formed by GE Power Systems to offer rental equipment for temporary distributed power and climate control applications in the commercial, industrial, utility, oil and gas, and special events markets.
Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Hertz Corporation, is a leading construction and industrial equipment rental business operating from more than 350 locations throughout North America and Europe.
