continues its string of acquisitions over the past year with the latest addition of Michigan-based Rentalex.
Rentalex has three locations, one in Kalamazoo, MI, serving the southwest Michigan market since 2001, and two more in Florida. The company serves a general contractor and homeowner client base, carrying equipment from manufacturers such as Hilti, Husqvarna, Honda, Wacker Neuson and Multiquip.
According to the Rentalex website, the company's history in the equipment industry dates back to 1929 when Krueger Machinery Co. was founded in Saginaw, MI by Walter Krueger. In the early 70s Tom Krueger (Walter’s son) was one of the first Associated Equipment Dealers (AED) to open a separate, stand-alone rental store to provide customers with a fleet of equipment when their projects didn’t warrant purchasing.
