ABLE purchases GAR Equipment assets

By Lindsey AndersonDecember 07, 2020

ABLE Equipment Rental, Inc. has purchased the equipment assets and service operations of GAR Equipment, Inc., located in South Plainfield, NJ. GAR, whose fleet is primarily access equipment, has three locations throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The transaction will allow ABLE to increase the size of its fleet and continue to meet the strong demand for equipment in the areas it serves, as well as expand its customer base. ABLE will retain the current GAR staff.

“For more than 40 years, GAR dependably served the needs of contractors, sub-contractors and industrial firms in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania,” said Steve Laganas, ABLE’s chief executive officer. “They offered a wide range of aerial products with a strong emphasis on impeccable service. We’re thrilled they have joined the ABLE Equipment Rental team.”

“Strategically, it will allow us to continue to serve as a reliable provider of aerial equipment and service for GAR’s current commercial and industrial clients,” said Chris Pera, ABLE’s chief operating officer. “Additionally, we’ll be able to offer a wide range of other machines for rent and for sale to fulfill GAR’s current customer’s specific construction equipment requirements,” Pera added.

ABLE Equipment Rental has five locations throughout the northeast region and has steadily increased its footprint and fleet size over the last two decades. The details of the deal were not made public.
