Volvo Rents has opened a new rental center in Turlock, Calif. Volvo Rents provides small-to-medium sized construction equipment to companies.

With the new location Volvo Rents now has 14 rental centers in California.

In opening the newest location, Volvo points out the huge growth opportunities expected in the state. In a release, Volvo points out that a forecast by economists at IHS Global Insight say California will lead the country in a nationwide construction recovery through 2016. According to IHS statistics, California will have the most construction dollars spent ($723 billion); will have the largest gain in yearly spending dollars ($76.40 billion); and have the third highest annual average percentage gain (15.6 percent).  

“There’s evidence showing a bit of sunshine for the construction industry that has seen too much rain. Yes, it’s being done in moderation and gradually, but the numbers are there,” says Mike Crouch, vice president of Business Development for Volvo Rents. “We couldn’t be more excited about further expanding our California footprint and providing the necessary equipment and services that will no doubt accelerate the projected recovery.”

Volvo Rents, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volvo Group, operates 130 rental stores in North America. The company operates a network of company-owned rental stores and franchised rental stores in North America. Each of its North American rental centers offer a comprehensive line of essential equipment for the construction, commercial and industrial markets, as well as an extensive line of Volvo compact excavators, compactors, wheel loaders, backhoe loaders, compaction equipment, and skid steer loaders.
