Altorfer Rents Achieves 5-Star Caterpillar Status

Achieved Top Status One Month After Completing Rental Operations Certification

In October 2016, Altorfer Rents completed the Rental Operations Certification as part of Caterpillar, Inc.’s initiative to provide a consistent, best-in-class rental experience for customers around the world. One month later, Caterpillar recognized Altorfer Rents with the prestigious 5-Star Award for Outstanding Achievement in Rental Operations.

For the certification, representatives from Caterpillar’s Global Rental Group worked with Altorfer Rents to conduct a comprehensive business review of their operations. The assessment consisted of 228 specific line items across five categories, including Asset Management, Performance Control, Sales Management, Business Growth Strategy and Safety and Employee Development.

Altorfer Rents completed the certification in October 2016 and achieved 5-Star status in November 2016. The company was recognized for this accomplishment at the 2017 Caterpillar Rental Summit in Las Vegas, NV.

“This achievement can be directly attributed to the efforts of the Altorfer Rents men and women who work hard each day serving our customers,” said Marty Hart, Altorfer Rents Vice President.

“We have a 5-Star team that is excited to help customers find everything they need, from basic construction tools to the heavy equipment required for ag, construction, landscaping and infrastructure projects,” Hart said. “We appreciate our customers and vendors for driving us to provide leading-edge service to meet their needs.”
