United Rentals opens NYC branch

United Rentals has opened a branch near the site of the former World Trade Center in New York City. The facility carries a range of small to mid-size equipment for rent, and draws on the company’s fleet at nearby locations to fill larger requests. United Rentals has another branch at 39th Street and 12th Avenue, and plans to open a third location in the city’s Upper East Side in the next several months. “United Rentals is proud to participate in the revitalization of New York City’s downtown,” said Steve Nadelman, senior vice president for field operations.
