The essence of The Leppo Way is building mutually beneficial relationships among customers, coworkers and vendors, thus, facilitating mutual success. The critical element is that Leppo, Inc. truly cares. Due to The Leppo Way, the company is the 79th largest rental company in North America.
Leppo, Inc. is expecting 2017 to be a big year as they celebrate their 72nd anniversary and the opening of the new Youngtown location! Leppo has served the Youngstown community since 1996, and the new site offers an innovative, convenient and accessible facility designed to enhance service to Youngstown customers.
CEO Glenn Leppo states, “With this new facility, we are anticipating significant growth in our Youngstown territory.” According to General Manager Matt Wagner, “The facility enables our team to work faster and more efficiently, allowing us to provide ever higher levels of customer service.”
The new location, off Interstate 80 at Salt Springs Road, has driven many adjustments to the customer service process. To strengthen their client focus, Wagner gave up his dual responsibilities between store and rental manager by hiring a new full-time rental manager. The expansion also required additional hiring in the areas of sales, repair and yard operations. Leppo Rents is open 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday and 7:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Saturday.
