Volvo Construction Equipment Rents Inc. has announced the signing of a franchise agreement for a new Volvo equipment rental center in Woodstock (Chicago), IL.

ACF Equipment Inc., 1340 Cobblestone Way, Woodstock, has entered into a Volvo CE Rents franchise agreement to own and operate an independent Volvo CE Rents center. The new equipment rental center will open for business within the next few weeks.

All Volvo CE Rents centers are independently-owned and operated franchises within the Volvo Construction Equipment rental program. The rental centers will carry, in addition to Volvo construction equipment, a comprehensive line of essential equipment and tools for the construction, commercial, industrial and homeowner markets.

Principal Volvo products for its franchised rental centers included its comprehensive line of compact excavators and wheel loaders and the company’s backhoe and skid steer loaders.

Volvo CE Rents, which began its equipment rental franchise initiative in 2001, now has equipment rental centers open in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, California, Tennessee, Ohio, South Carolina, Louisiana, New York, Minnesota, Arkansas, New Jersey, Alabama, Kentucky and Pennsylvania — and, soon in Illinois.

In addition to these franchises, the company has franchise agreements signed with other North America business interests seeking independently-owned and operated franchise opportunities in the equipment rental business.
