EquipmentShare, Columbia, Mo., an equipment rental and equipment asset management company, has opened a new rental facility in Grand Prairie, Texas. A grand opening event was hosted on Oct. 3 that featured a ribbon-cutting presentation, lunch and tours.

“Texas has and will continue to be an important part of our business. Grand Prairie was the third location we opened in our company’s history — so it’s an extra special day to commemorate the new building but also to reaffirm our commitment to invest and grow right here in Texas,” said Jabbok Schlacks, CEO and co-founder, EquipmentShare.

The new Grand Prairie location’s operations will include EquipmentShare’s proprietary technology, T3. The company describes T3 as a high-powered technology platform that can help rental customers access important fleet, personnel, and job site information to manage teams, meet safety compliance, reduce machine theft, and analyze digestible and dynamic fleet data.

The 15,953-sq.-ft. building includes 10 service bays with 10 workstations, an equipment wash bay, a parts department and a 3,000-sq.-ft. retail area. The $3.7 million facility shares an equipment yard with the existing building located on Roy Orr Boulevard, which will now serve as the training center for onboarding new team members and an institutional learning hub for the company’s continuing education initiatives. EquipmentShare, founded in 2015, opened its doors in Grand Prairie that same year. In total, EquipmentShare has 22 facilities in Texas.

“This location is the first in a series with our company’s new rental branch look and feel. We offer reliable tech-powered rentals to builders in this community and across the great state of Texas. When they walk into this space, we want them to experience right away that EquipmentShare is the place to go for the best equipment solutions on the planet,” said James Ferguson, general manager of EquipmentShare’s Grand Prairie location. “We also want our team members to be proud of their work home, and we believe this new space accomplishes that while offering plenty of room to grow for years to come.”
