United Rentals in Rock Springs Plans Grand Opening

Rock Springs, WY - Jul 29, 2010


The United Rentals branch in Rock Springs, Wyoming, will celebrate its grand opening with an event for the general public on Thursday, August 12, 2010, at its 1101 Rockies Circle location. United Rentals will demonstrate safe operating techniques on a range of equipment, and showcase the latest advances in construction technology.

"We're excited to be a part of the economic development in Sweetwater County, where we already serve a number of energy projects," said Marci Peterson, branch manager for United Rentals. "While our name is most often associated with construction, we also want to invite plant operators, utility managers, local business owners and the public to stop by and learn about our services. People are often surprised at how much more productive and cost effective it can be to rent equipment, rather than buy it."

The event will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on August 12.

Customers of United Rentals have access to hundreds of types of rental equipment. The Rock Springs branch carries equipment for construction, industrial and municipal needs, including the latest technologies for aerial work platforms, portable power, earthmoving, compaction and more. United Rentals also offers delivery and pickup services, certified safety and operator training, and 24-hour emergency response.
