Our people have been helping fleets meet their biggest challenges for seventy years.
Our past and present is the foundation for building a bright future.
Holman Enterprises, parent company of ARI, launched in Merchantville, New Jersey when Steward C. Holman signed a dealership contract with the Ford Motor Company.
Ford asked Holman to organize a new renting and leasing company for passenger cars and trucks. With one desk in the corner of the Ford dealership, ARI was open for business.
ARI introduced services and online systems for maintenance, renewal and title management, including reports and analysis tools. Company clients also gained access to our Client Information Systems team– the industry’s first team to provide customer-direct, technology-related support.
To meet the needs of companies growing geographically, ARI expanded operations throughout North America. We also opened the first of several maintenance call centers. As the century closed, ARI introduced web-based systems for both fleet managers and drivers.
To help customers control costs in the midst of the recession, ARI offered consulting support geared toward sustainability, fuel efficiency, and compliance. In 2011, ARI invested in in-memory technology, giving clients unprecedented ability to analyze their fleet data. ARI opened locations in England and Germany and acquired upfitting companies to support global and vocational fleets.
