Elgin and East Dundee market stands out as thriving area with strong commercial presence
ST. LOUIS, Jan. 16, 2019 /CNW/ -- Enterprise Truck Rental is opening its eighth location in the Chicagoland area this month. The branch office, located at 900 Christina Drive in East Dundee, is part of a plan to double the number of branch locations in the Chicago area over the next three to five years.
"Upon analyzing the truck rental needs of the Chicagoland area, the Elgin and East Dundee market stood out as a thriving area with a strong commercial presence, including several successful warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, landscaping, construction and logistics companies," said Gregg Gremillion, Enterprise Group Truck Manager in Chicago. "We're excited to bring a new level of service and convenience to our Chicagoland customers with this new branch."
The East Dundee Enterprise Truck Rental location provides access to a wide range of cargo vans, box trucks and tow-capable pickup trucks for both business and personal use. Enterprise is working with local service shops and other area vendors to purchase and maintain the vehicles. The branch is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and is closed on Sunday.
Growth Fueling Opportunities for Local Employees
Enterprise Truck Rental is a service of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, which has delivered local transportation solutions to customers for more than 60 years and is an integral part of North America's transportation infrastructure. In fact, Enterprise Rent-A-Car has more than 5,800 fully staffed neighborhood and airport branch offices located within 15 miles of 90 percent of the U.S. population – including approximately 160 in the Chicago area alone.
Enterprise first began renting commercial trucks in 1999 and, a decade later, started offering truck rentals for personal use in response to customer demand. Today, personal use accounts for 20 percent of Enterprise Truck Rental's business.
Over the past decade, Enterprise Truck Rental has tripled its number of locations from 100 in 2007 to more than 300 today throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
The East Dundee branch opening is part of a broader growth strategy to increase Enterprise Truck Rental's North American presence, particularly in highly visible areas. In total, the East Dundee Truck Rental team will consist of three full-time employees – one branch manager and two account specialists – as well as a part-time service agent. Chicagoland is home to more than 2,000 Enterprise employees.
In addition to offering customers more convenient truck rental locations, the expansion is creating opportunities for Enterprise employees to grow their careers. In fact, the branch manager of the new East Dundee location, Tom Prusila, was promoted from his role as assistant manager at a top-performing Truck Rental branch in Bolingbrook, Ill. – just one of the 17,342 companywide promotions in 2018.
