SALISBURY — The Tool Rental Depot, an extension of Hydraulic Depot and Custom Design, is open for business.
The three service-oriented businesses form one family-run, locally-owned and operated company at 2001 S. Main St. They are all located in the 70,000-square-foot former W.A. Brown facility.
Tool Rental Depot’s expansion was funded in part by a $10,825 Industrial Building Revitalization grant from the city of Salisbury.
“We are excited to expand our business and appreciate the wonderful turnout we had at our recent open house,” said Phil Butler, owner of Hydraulic Depot and now Tool Rental Depot. “We look forward to serving the rental, repair, welding and fleet management needs of Salisbury, Rowan County and the surrounding area.”
Tool Rental Depot rents all types of tools and can service and repair a variety of construction equipment, including concrete saws, pressure washers, ground compacting equipment and aerial lifts.
The business also offers annual aerial lift inspections.
Local business representatives, frequent customers, vendors and the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce and RowanWorks Economic Development Commission celebrated a grand opening and ribbon cutting event earlier this month.
“We are lucky to have this expansion in Salisbury,” said Robert Van Geons, executive director for the EDC.
