Enterprise Truck Rental on Track to Open 40 More Locations This Year
ST. LOUIS (May 15, 2019) – Enterprise Truck Rental continues its North American growth with the opening of more than two dozen new locations so far in fiscal year 2019, making it one of the fastest growing truck rental companies in the industry. The openings are a part of a broader growth strategy that provides short- and long-term transportation solutions when and where customers need them.
“In 1999, Enterprise began renting commercial trucks in response to customer demand, and a decade later, we expanded those services to personal-use truck rentals,” said Mike Pugh, Corporate Vice President, Enterprise Truck Rental. “Our significant growth since then represents our continued commitment to listening to our customers. Today, we’re proud to serve our customers’ truck rental needs throughout the U.S. and Canada.”
A service of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Enterprise Truck Rental provides the same renowned, high level of service as its flagship brand. Enterprise has delivered local transportation solutions to customers for more than 60 years and is an integral part of North America’s multi-modal transportation infrastructure. Enterprise Rent-A-Car has more than 5,800 fully staffed neighborhood and airport branch offices – one located within 15 miles of 90% of the U.S. population.
Celebrating Two Decades of Growth
From its beginnings in 1999 in Southern California, Enterprise Truck Rental quickly expanded to 100 locations by 2007. Over the past decade, the business has tripled its number of locations to more than 300 today throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. In 2017, Enterprise Truck Rental expanded its services outside of North America for the first time with a new location in North Geelong, Australia.
Enterprise Truck Rental continues to grow as a result of customer demand for seasonal, project-based and e-commerce delivery rentals for commercial businesses, as well as personal truck rental needs for consumers.

Achieving Milestones & Providing Opportunities in New Mexico
One of the 26 newly opened Enterprise Truck Rental locations is in New Mexico – the first in the state. Located at 3500 Coors Blvd. NW in Albuquerque, the office shares space with an Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch and 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.
Enterprise offers a promote-from-within culture that encourages success among employees, allowing them to move up quickly based on their performance and work ethic. In fact, the New Mexico opening is already creating new career opportunities. For instance, New Mexico’s Group Truck Manager Earl Jackson began his Enterprise career as a vehicle service agent before finishing college and transitioning to a customer-facing role. Albuquerque Branch Rental Manager Lacy Baron started like many Enterprise employees – in the renowned Management Training program, which teaches employees how to run a business, empower teams and provide excellent face-to-face customer service.
In total, the New Mexico Truck Rental team consists of three employees – one group truck manager, one branch rental manager and a vehicle service agent. As the business continues to grow, even more employees will be hired to help meet customers’ needs.
