Volvo Rents has acquired SoCal Rental-Equip Rent, a single-location construction equipment rental company in Glendora, Calif., east of Los Angeles. The Glendora Volvo Rents gives the company six branches in California — Glendora, Bakersfield and Temecula in southern California, and Merced, Modesto and Sacramento in the north central part of the state.
Previous owner Peter Maginnis will remain with the Glendora branch as general manager.
“I purchased Equiprent in November of 2009 with the idea of bringing a higher level of customer service to the Southern California equipment rental industry,” said Maginnis, who added that Volvo Rents is a natural fit for SoCal.
Based in Shippensburg, Pa., Volvo Rents is No. 17 on the RER 100.
