Able Equipment Rental has purchased the assets of Key Equipment Inc. of Honey Brook, Pa., which will operate as the newest branch of Able Equipment Rental. Honey Brook is located in Chester County, in central Pennsylvania. Able will retain the current Key staff to operate the branch as Able’s fourth location in the northeast.

The new branch is well situated to deliver equipment throughout central Pennsylvania.

“We’re delighted that Key Equipment is joining the Able family,” said Steven Laganas, Able’s CEO. “Key’s expertise and familiarity with the Central Pennsylvania market was certainly one of the factors that helped us in our decision-making. I look forward to partnering with all of Key’s talented employees.”

“From a strategic perspective, it will allow us to continue to serve as a trusted provider of aerial lifts, telehandlers, forklifts, and mini-cranes for Key’s current commercial and industrial clients,” said Chris Pera, Able’s chief operating officer. “We’ll be able to offer excavation, portable power, air, heat, and traffic control equipment, plus specialty equipment such as rotating telehandlers, and under-bridge access, all throughout the mid-Atlantic region that Key served.”

Able Equipment Rental is based in Deer Park, N.Y., and has branches in Edison, N.J., and Pennsauken, N.J. The company is No. 69 on the RER 100.
