There is no stronger segment in the equipment rental industry than the energy rental space. Across many regions of North America, rental companies are renting equipment to companies and contractors involved in oil and gas exploration and extraction, wind farming, petrochemical refineries and other types of energy-related activity. In addition to actual exploration and extraction, a great deal of infrastructure is required. Roads need to be built to reach remote areas, housing for workers is required, holes and ditches need to be dug, and a lot more.

RER will be taking a look at this growing trend in the rental industry with a one-hour free webinar, sponsored by Kohler Power. Panelists will include Kevin Groman, CEO of ECM Energy Services; Dale Leppo, chairman of Leppo Rents and Razor Rents; and Chris Cahal, general manager of Wagner Equipment and Wagner Rents, all of whom are involved in rental activity in the energy arena.

The webinar, to be held Thursday Aug. 7 at 2 p.m. Eastern time, is free of charge, but registration is required. Register here:
