Tricor putting its rental equipment on display

MORRISTOWN -Tricor Hardware and Rental in Morristown is hosting its First Annual Open House event this Friday, June 28, 2013 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., providing an opportunity for an exceptional first-hand introduction to the extensive array of items available for rental or purchase by everyone from the Do it Yourselfer to the more traditional industrial customers, including those working in the oil and gas plays.

The event is being designed to highlight the recent addition to the local store of its unique rental division known as Tricor Hardware and Rental.

The Morristown store site, located at 66921 Belmont Morristown Road – (across from Doan Ford) has the distinction of being the first Tricor store to offer items for rental to the general public or traditional industrial consumers.

Current store hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and closed on Sunday.

Phone calls to Tricor Hardware and Rental can be directed to 740-782-0098.

In support of introducing the rental line of products in its large inventory, experts will be providing demonstrations at Friday’s open house event.

Door prizes will also be awarded and light lunch fare from the barbecue will be provided.

Martins Ferry native and now a St. Clairsville area resident, T. J. Simpson, has been tapped to lead the rental business at the popular Morristown location being reintroduced to the general public as Tricor Hardware and Rental.

Tom Lorenz, longtime general manager of the entire Tricor operation under roof at the Morristown store site, expects a large number of vendors to be on-hand for the open house event, which is being hosted at the large store site in Morristown.

In addition to the many opportunities to interact one- to- one with experts representing various vendors, there will be a number of door prizes and other items shared with guests attending the first of what are now expected to be annual open house events at the Morristown branch of Tricor.

The range of items we have available for rental to the individual or to a business is extensive, according to Simpson, who has grouped the various on hand items into representative groups.

“In general, rental of equipment – large or small – is based on a person or company’s needs for items to help them address specific tasks,” shared Simpson.

In an effort to help customers become aware of the depth and variety of the tools and machines available for rent through Tricor Hardware and Rental, Simpson has prepared an informative flyer to be distributed at the upcoming Open House slated from Friday.

He can be reached at the Morristown location of Tricor Hardware and Rental for additional information by calling 740-782-0098.

With the addition of the rental component to the Morristown location of Tricor those looking for a very specific machine or tool to help accomplish a precise task can expect to be successful when in search of a connection to exactly the extra help or expertise they were looking for.

The Toro Dingo line that begins with the compact utility loader as its foundation for an expansive array of more than 35 attachments is meant to allow the operator to handle numerous tasks, while minimizing hand labor, working easily in tight spots, and being able to go almost anywhere the work is thanks to its powerful hydraulic operation, explained Simpson.
