Rental Equipment Investment Corp. has acquired the assets and certain liabilities of Hillside Rental LLC, an equipment rental company based in Evans, Colo. REIC is an equipment rental holding company led by Kevin Fitzgerald and other private investors.

“Hillside is an excellent well-run company that has been operating in the northeast of Colorado for 30 years,” said Fitzgerald, CEO of REIC. “We are excited to purchase Hillside and continue with its management team. This is REIC’s third acquisition since we were established in late 2014 and we plan to continue to expand REIC’s footprint through opening new stores and through acquisitions of other rental equipment companies.”

REIC acquired Midway Rentals, based in Kalispell, Mont., in December 2014, and added a Bozeman, Mont., branch in June. Later in the year, REIC acquired Reliable Equipment Rental in Wheatland, Wyo.

Hillside Rental offers a wide range of general construction-related equipment.
