PEARLAND, Texas — Leadership from the City of Pearland and the Pearland Economic Development Corporation (PEDC) are excited to celebrate with Energy Rental Solutions as the company broke ground on its 40,000 square-foot facility in Pearland on April 4th.
Energy Rental Solutions (ERS) provides turnkey rental solutions for planned or emergency utility needs. ERS is a Caterpillar dealer dedicated to the specialty rental business with one of the largest equipment rental fleets of Temperature Control, Compressed Air and Generator products on the Gulf Coast.
“We are excited about building our new facility in Pearland, Texas,” stated Dwayne Long, VP/GM Energy Rental Solutions. “Our Pearland location will allow us easier access to our customers, by way of Beltway 8. The new facility will have over seven acres of concrete and will be outfitted with state-of-the-art test facilities, offering our customers the best equipment and service in the industry.”
The 40,000 square-foot building will include office and warehouse space and is located on a 12-acre site in the Rice Drier Commerce Park on Rice Drier Road and State Highway 35. The facility will be home to approximately 55 employees, including executive management, sales, operations, administrative, service technicians and warehouse personnel.
“The City of Pearland is honored to partner with Energy Rental Solutions on this new facility and we look forward to their continued growth in our community,” stated Pearland Mayor Tom Reid.” “Energy Rental Solutions’ selection of Pearland is a testament to our city’s efforts to create a community with both an outstanding quality of life and a business-friendly environment.”
PEDC and city officials began working with ERS in 2017 on the project. The site ERS selected is part of the 18-acre Rice Drier Commerce Park, a development located in the area identified as Business Park North in the State Highway 35 Redevelopment Strategy. The State Highway 35 Redevelopment Strategy was developed to build upon the Pearland 20/20 Strategic Plan suggestions and provide the “big picture” strategic actions that are needed to encourage more investment in the corridor. The SH 35 Redevelopment Strategy’s vision is to create a high quality and consistently-designed employment and business environment with compatible land uses and supportive amenities.
