Hertz Corporation announces new KSA expansion
Hertz Dayim Equipment Rental opens brand new branch in Jeddah
The Hertz Corporation has announced that Hertz Dayim Equipment Rental has further expanded its operations in Saudi Arabia by opening a new facility in Jeddah.
The new branch will serve a range of sectors in KSA’s Western Province, including those concerned with petrochemical, oil and gas, government and the military.
The new location will provide equipment rental and fleet management services in a similar vein to its existing Damman site. The branch will offer a broad range of rental solutions, including earthmoving, aerial and electrical equipment.
KSA’s Western Province is regarded as a strong growth opportunity because of its high levels of construction and industrialisation. An estimated $230bn of projects are either underway or in planning within this region, according to the Zawya Projects Monitor.
Group president of Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation Lois Boyd said: “Hertz Dayim Equipment Rental, the joint venture of Hertz Equipment Rental and Dayim Systems, is continuing its rapid growth across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in order to meet strong demand.
“The aim of our new Jeddah operation is to provide customers a first-class, value-added equipment rental supplier in the Western Province of Saudi Arabia,” he continued. “The move also positions Hertz-Dayim for further strong growth opportunities in the region.”
Located on the Makkah Highway, the new facility features a yard, a shop and a branch office. The site is located 8km southeast of Jeddah City.
“The expansion is another milestone in our endeavour to make Hertz-Dayim one of the largest equipment rental companies in Saudi Arabia,” explained HRH Prince Khalid bin Bandar bin Sultan, chairman of Hertz-Dayim Equipment Rental. “The new branch in Jeddah will be ideally placed to cater to the equipment needs of the large number of infrastructure and construction projects in the Western Province. This includes landmark projects such as the Jeddah, Makkah and Medina Metro, Kingdom Tower, the airport expansions and the economic cities.”
