Richfield, Wis.-based Custom Equipment and Las Vegas-based Ahern Rentals last week announced the formulation of a formal distributor relationship between the two companies. Ahern Rentals has agreed to provide rental, retail sales and service coverage for Custom Equipment’s Hy-Brid line of aerial platforms throughout Ahern Rental’s 11-state coverage area.
The Hy-Brid line of aerial lifts includes the HB-1030, a 10-foot, 1,200-pound aerial scissor and the HB-1430, a 14-foot, 1,670-pound aerial scissor. Both aerial scissor units feature a dual-motor electric drive system, electric steering, and a lighter-weight approach to machine design.
“When Custom Equipment Inc. formulated its expansion plan into the western United States, Ahern Rentals’ reputation as a strong distribution partner immediately came to mind,” said Steve Kissinger, owner of Custom Equipment. “Our relationship with Don Ahern and Ahern Rentals will provide construction contractors located throughout Ahern’s coverage area with immediate access to our lighter-weight aerial scissorlift.”
Ahern Rentals is No. 11 on the RER 100.
