HBSDealer had the opportunity to discuss the state of the tool, OPE, and equipment rental industry with The Home Depot Rental.
The live webinar included a team of executives from The Home Depot:
• Richard Porter, vice president of rental, repairs, RLCs and services;
• Anika Wharton, senior director of rental operations;
• Tim Dugan, senior director of rental operations; and
• Tony English, senior director of merchandising.
With more than 1,200 locations in North America, along with 6,000 associates and products available in 60 categories, The Home Depot Rental division shed some light on future growth and how it plans to attract more pro business in addition to rental sales from DIYers.
The Home Depot Rental continues to grow and recently opened new Rental Operation Facilities (ROFs) in Houston and Nashville with a focus on distributing larger class equipment more efficiently.
The Home Depot Rental says the importance of ROFs has grown in importance as the needs of its pro customers have grown.
Last year also marked an expansion for the division as The Home Depot Rental opened 10 new rental locations in six states during the second half of 2020.
