Enterprise Holdings Inc., which owns the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands, announced today its Canadian subsidiary has closed its acquisition of Discount Car and Truck Rentals, a leading Canadian car and truck rental company serving customers across Canada. All conditions of closing have been satisfied, including receipt of a no action letter from the Canadian Competition Bureau. The acquisition includes all of Discount’s corporate-owned locations and the Quebec licensee’s daily rental businesses.
The acquisition creates growth by combining complementary networks and service offerings, talented workforces, as well as the expertise of both companies. This results in a broader offering of services at additional locations with a focus on enhanced mobility offerings. Additionally, the combination of the two companies brings together the complementary strengths of two family-owned and privately held companies with a rich legacy of delivering superior customer service.
“We are excited about and encouraged by the long-term opportunities for diversification and innovation this acquisition brings,” said Steven Tudela, Senior Vice President of Canadian Operations for Enterprise Holdings. “Through a broader fleet of cars and trucks of all sizes and an expanded portfolio of services – from airport service car rentals to neighborhood leisure and moving truck rentals – the acquisition allows us to enhance our ability to meet the unique mobility needs of Canadian customers and offer more efficient service.”
