AUSTIN - When Steve Spence, branch manager of Tejas Equipment Rental in San Marcos told me he was originally from Oregon, he promptly added, “I got here as fast as I could…I love it in Texas!”






    Spence was actually born in California and grew up in Oregon. After high school he attended California State University, Fullerton. He has been in Texas 12 years.
    “I worked for the Hertz Corporation for about 10 years, and decided I needed a new adventure and went into the equipment rental business,” Spence added.
    Spence remarked on how the San Marcos area is booming and thriving and how there is plenty of competition every day in the equipment rental industry. His biggest daily challenge is to stand out from other rental companies in the area. Luckily the building in San Marcos that houses Tejas has been an equipment rental location for a long time, coincidentally it was built in the 1970’s by the father of Tejas’ own inside sales rep, a fifth generation San Marcos native.
    The San Marcos community is a source of pride to Spence. Tejas Equipment Rentals regularly supports many local organizations and their events including Gary Job Corps Job Hunt, 4H Dove Hunt, San Marcos High School Band Booster Club, to only name a few. You will often see Spence and staff at the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce mixers.
    “We’re very local, we are definitely not just business,” says Spence.
    He claims to really enjoy his work at Tejas, especially when he can help “do-it-your-selfers” select the equipment best suited for whatever they are trying to accomplish. They have a wide range of tools, forklifts, backhoe loaders, excavators, light towers and other construction equipment to offer to the general public. Should they not have what a customer needs on site, it can be found through one of their other locations in South and Central Texas and the Rio Grande Valley.
