GM Equipment RentalsGM Equipment Rentals, an aerial and material handling company based in North Central Pennsylvania, has completed its acquisition of Magnum Equipment, Hudsonville, Mich. The acquisition extends GM Equipment’s coverage area across Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland and Michigan. 

GM Equipment Rentals is a family-owned company that offers a large array of aerial and material handling equipment along with a line of dirt and support equipment. The company says customer service, prompt deliveries and quick turnaround times are themes it hangs its hat on, with a common saying that “We are a service company first, that happens to rent and repair equipment.” The GM Equipment Rentals team also says it strives to create a great working environment for its employees by offering excellent pay and benefits packages. 

As part of GM Equipment’s ongoing growth strategy, the addition of Magnum Equipment extends its service area, customer base and infrastructure. The acquisition also perfectly aligns with its heavy arsenal of MEWP (mobile elevating work platform) and material handling equipment, the company says.  

The company’s Michigan customer base will now be able to quickly view their account information and on-rent reports through GM Equipment’s online portal. 

Z Rental Consulting represented Magnum Equipment in the transaction. GM Equipment Corp. retained private counsel.
