WALTHAM, Mass. – January 22, 2008 – Keeping pace with the increasing demand of its clientele, Rentacrate®, the country’s first and foremost reusable plastic crate and moving equipment rental company, announces the opening of two new office locations in Charlotte, NC and Pittsburgh, Pa. Now with 15 full-service operations, Rentacrate has further expanded its national and local capacity to provide environmentally friendly, cost-effective and easy-to-use products and services.

Similarly, the materials collected for the company’s secure document destruction/shredding and electronic recycling services are 100 percent recycled, providing a greener, immediately beneficial alternative for our customers.

“Our expansion into these two wonderful cities is a clear indication that the demand for eco-friendly products and services is growing,” said Michael Brown, President and COO. “Beyond our products' and services' many environmental benefits, our fully integrated Complete Moving SystemTM makes moves faster, more efficient, and less expensive for our customers—from small and mid-size local businesses to national organizations.”
