Hertz Equipment has one of the strongest fleet mixes in the equipment rental industry; by also offering financial options through Donlen, we further illustrate our position as the leading market solutions provider," comment HERC President, Lois Boyd.
"Today's hard-pressed credit markets often make it difficult to access capital, especially for small to mid-size companies," said Mike Lewis, Donlen SVP and General Manager, Equipment Leasing.

By employing our respective resources, Donlen and HERC together are providing a way to help companies succeed and grow."
