Able Equipment Inc. expands

Able Equipment Rental Inc. announced it has purchased the assets of Key Equipment Inc. of Honey Brook, Pennsylvania.

The transaction will allow the Key facility to operate as the newest branch of Able Equipment Rental. Able will retain the current Key staff to operate it as its fourth location in the northeast.

Located in Chester County at 1799 Horseshoe Pike in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, ABLE's newest branch is well situated to deliver equipment throughout central Pennsylvania. 

"We're delighted that Key Equipment is joining the Able family," says Steven Laganas, Able chief executive officer.  "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," Laganas adds.

"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," says Chris Pera, Able 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 platforms throughout the mid-Atlantic region that Key served," Pera adds.
