United Rentals has continued its acquisition spree with a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of WesternOne Rentals & Sales from parent company Vancouver, B.C., Canada-based WesternOne Inc. for approximately $91.8 million in cash. The transaction is expected to close before year-end subject to approval by the shareholders of WesternOne Inc. and other customary conditions. The transaction is not expected to have a material impact on the revenues or earnings of United Rentals.

WesternOne is an equipment rental company that provides aerial lifts and heating solutions in Western Canada, with additional offerings of temporary power, general construction equipment and fuel delivery. WesternOne has 12 locations about 330 employees. It primarily serves non-residential construction and industrial customers in Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba, with a notable presence in sports and entertainment.

“The acquisition of WesternOne Rental & Sales will expand both our general rental and specialty offerings in key Canadian provinces,” said Michael Kneeland United Rentals CEO. “WesternOne’s aerial and portable heat rentals dovetail with our own range for construction and industrial customers. We’ll also gain scale and diversification in two areas: the sports and entertainment vertical, with a focus on film and television production, and a comprehensive propane and diesel fuel service.

“In addition, the combination directly aligns with our vision for customer service. We particularly like the fact that WesternOne’s culture focuses on people and innovation. In addition to cross-selling our equipment and services, we’ll be able to give our combined customer base the benefit of new expertise and a larger pool of shared technology. We look forward to welcoming WesternOne employees to United Rentals.”

Since April 2017, United Rentals has acquired NES Rentals, Neff Corp., BakerCorp, BlueLine Rental and now WesternOne. United, based in Stamford, Conn., is No. 1 on the RER 100. WesternOne Rentals & Sales is No. 59.
