The Hertz Corporation has announced that Hertz Dayim Equipment Rental has further expanded in Saudi Arabia by opening a greenfield location in Riyadh.

 The new location will serve Central Province-based infrastructure, commercial, government, military, construction, event services, and industrial sectors. As part of its many activities in the region, the company is now a registered vendor with multiple contractors of the $22 billion Riyadh Metro project, a six-line, 85-station public transport construction initiative taking place over a five year period.

Similar to the company’s Dammam and Jeddah locations in the Eastern and Western Provinces respectively, the Riyadh operation rents and sells equipment and tools as well as providing comprehensive fleet management services. Hertz-Dayim’s portfolio includes equipment for earth moving, aerial, material handling, power, electrical, and compressor requirements. The company also offers its clients safe operation equipment training.

Lois Boyd, president, Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation, said: “Hertz Dayim Equipment Rental, the joint venture of Hertz Equipment Rental and Dayim Systems, is continuing its rapid growth across Saudi Arabia. The Central Province is considered a strong market opportunity due to massive spending on large-scale urban infrastructure projects. This includes the Riyadh Metro project as well as multi-billion dollar initiatives for the financial district, medical cities, commercial centres and highways and bridges. Our aim is to provide first class, value-added equipment rental solutions to customers in the region.”

Chairman of Hertz-Dayim Equipment Rental, Prince Khalid bin Bandar bin Sultan, added: “With branches now in all three major regions of Saudi Arabia, we will be able to serve a wide variety of projects and clients across the kingdom. The new branch in Riyadh is positioned to meet the requirements of the major urban infrastructure projects which are currently underway including the much-lauded metro rail system initiative for the capital. We also plan to continue our expansion and open smaller regional centres in Saudi Arabia to complete our nationwide presence, and move closer to our vision to become the number one equipment rental company of Saudi Arabia.”

The HERC Riyadh location offers a broad range of equipment and tools, including backhoes, skid steers, straight and articulating manlifts, telehandlers and construction and industrial fork lifts, 185 CFM to 1600 CFM compressors (including Instrument Quality), light towers and 50 KW to 1 MW generators.  Equipment comes from manufacturers including Atlas Copco, Case, Doosan, Genie, Himoinsa, Ingersoll Rand, JCB, JLG, Miller and Wacker

Located on the Khurais highway, one of the busiest highways in the Saudi capital, the new facility features a 7,000 sq m yard, shop and branch office. The facility is situated east of the city with easy access to Riyadh’s five industrial cities and straight access to the Dammam highway.

Dayim Systems and its associated company Dayim Holdings operate as vehicles for investment, joint ventures and strategic partnerships in the rapid growth environment of Saudi Arabia. Dayim’s portfolio of companies and partnerships currently spans oil and gas EPC contracting, heavy equipment rental, infrastructure, water treatment, man guarding services, high tech safety and security equipment, information and communication technology (ICT), and systems integration services. Dayim’s partnerships with the global industry leaders in these sectors underpin its vision to bring the best of brands, knowledge, expertise and technical skills in Saudi Arabia and contribute towards building a balanced and sustainable Saudi economy.

Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Hertz Corporation since 1965, operates one of the world’s largest equipment rental businesses with approximately 360 locations in the United States, Canada, China, France, Spain and Saudi Arabia as well as through international licensees.
