Ahern Rentals, the largest independently owned high reach equipment rental company in the U.S., opened a new location to service the Chicago metropolitan area and the surrounding Midwest states. The store is a 28,000 square-foot building with an 11.5-acre yard located at 13275 Main Street, Lemont, IL.
This is Ahern’s 85th rental store with a presence now in 26 states. According to officials, Chicago is a prime location for a new Ahern store given the opportunities in the region for convention and construction business.
