VOLVO RENTS PLANS TO OPEN HERE
2520 E. Outer Road, Scott City, Missouri
Tom Kelsey, commercial broker with Lorimont
Place, Ltd. who handled the real estate transaction confirmed
that the former Delta Express Trucking building on the I-55 East
Outer Road will be the new location of Volvo Rents.
Kelsey said the national equipment rental company, a
wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volvo Group, operates over 70
rental stores in North America. Each of the North American
rental centers offers a comprehensive line of essential
equipment for the construction, commercial and industrial
markets, as well as an extensive line of Volvo compact
excavators, compactors, wheel loaders, backhoe loaders,
compaction equipment, and skid steer loaders.
The new Cape Girardeau operation located at
2520 E. Outer Road, directly across Interstate I-55 from the
regional airport will contain a 10,700 square-foot building that
will house a showroom, operation office, parts and service shop
area. The company
will have nearly 7 acres of yard area to display and store their
various lines of equipment.
The company is in the process of remodeling the building
and property to suit their operations needs.
Kelsey said the high traffic and visibility location

Wachter will serve as the branch manager.
Kelsey said he was uncertain the exact amount of new jobs
that would be created by the new facility opening but estimated
