Car hire firm Enterprise has just marked the opening of a new UK service depot giving direct access to the Cotswold Hills. A spokesperson for the car supplier noted that the opening of a new depot in Stroud was designed to make vehicle rentals accessible for residents and tourists in Gloucestershire.
Local manager Matthew Hooper stated that Enterprise Rent-A-Car was pleased to be expanding into Gloucestershire. He said the service would be useful for people in Stroud as well in the environs of it. He explained that it was Enterprise policy to only open depots where there was sustainable demand for car hire.
Mr Hooper continued by saying the branch was customer oriented and would save hirers from having to trek the 20 miles over to the Enterprise Cirencester depot. The Stroud depot is on Westward Road and the office building is a former dance studio. It is less than two miles from Stroud’s town centre.
The new Enterprise branch will eventually lead to the creation of four new jobs. Two of these will be trainees on the firm’s management programme. Interviews are scheduled for the new year and the company hopes to have a full complement of staff at the depot before the end of January.
Enterprise currently has more than 400 depots in the UK. These employ around 4,500 staff altogether. Enterprise bills itself as a family oriented company with bespoke personal service, but a part of the globe’s biggest car rentals supply operator.
