By Belinda SmartJanuary 05, 2021

EquipmentShare, an equipment and digital technology provider, is opening a third location in southwest Houston.

The equipment and digital solutions location is located at 6811 McHard Road in Houston. Its rental fleet includes general heavy equipment, dirt and heavy dirt equipment, high-reach equipment and specialty infrastructure equipment.

“EquipmentShare has built a large customer base in Texas,” EquipmentShare CEO and co-founder Jabbok Schlacks said. “We have 13 other locations in Texas, and our growth in this state is a testament to our customer loyalty and support. To keep up with their demand, and to deliver the newest fleet and outstanding service, we took steps to open a third location in the area.”

EquipmentShare’s rental machines are outfitted with tracking hardware and connected to software that allows customers and EquipmentShare’s service department to monitor equipment utilisation, GPS location, fuel usage, maintenance history and upcoming services. The company’s fleet management technology notifies service managers and technicians when a machine is approaching or past due on maintenance.

EquipmentShare is also actively recruiting in the greater Houston area for a variety of positions, including mechanic, driver and sales roles. Assistant General Manager Linda Allen said, “Many construction jobs were lost this year, but we’re actively looking to grow our team with experienced industry professionals. EquipmentShare plans to be a part of the growth the Houston market experiences as it rebounds from 2020.”
