United Rentals, Inc. opened its new contractor supplies distribution center in Denver, Colorado. The 32,000 sq.-ft. facility is the eighth of nine regional warehouses planned throughout the United States and Canada. The new distribution center stocks 7,000 contractor supply line items, including saw blades, power tools and safety gear. "This facility is fully integrated with our branches so that customers who place orders before 4 p.m. can expect same-day shipment of their supplies," said Peter Hofbauer, director-logistics and distribution for United Rentals.
The Denver center will fulfill customer orders placed through approximately 40 United Rentals locations in Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico and Utah. The company has established similar contractor supplies distribution centers in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Illinois, California, Texas and Oregon in the United States and Ontario in Canada. United Rentals expects to stock 10,000 contractor supply line items at each of its distribution centers by year-end.
