Hertz Selects Turner Construction to Build Florida Headquarters

The Hertz Corp. announced today that Turner Construction Co. has been selected to build the Hertz worldwide headquarters facility in Estero, Fla.

Hertz expects to break ground later this year and complete construction in 2015. As of next month, Hertz will establish its temporary headquarters in Naples, Fla., says the company.

"Turner Construction Company has been building in Florida for 105 years, employs over 250 employees in the state and completes an average of $400 million of Florida projects annually,” said Todd Poste, Hertz’s executive vice president, global supply chain and fleet. “Turner also has an excellent track record of efficiency, timeliness and quality which made them the best choice to help Hertz establish a long-term headquarters presence in Southwest Florida.

Hertz announced on May 7 that it would relocate its worldwide headquarters to Southwest Florida from Northern New Jersey. The company selected a site at the intersection of highway 41 and Williams Road in Estero.

According to Hertz, it estimates that 400 headquarter jobs could be filled locally — with approximately 300 positions being filled by Hertz employees relocating to the Estero area.
