Sunbelt acquires in Indianapolis

Sunbelt Rentals has acquired Runyon Equipment Rental of Carmel on the northern edge of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Runyon was established in 1961 and offers a wide range of equipment including a sizeable fleet of aerial lifts, ranging from push arounds and telescopic booms from JLG to Niftylift trailer lifts, alongside a mix of fixed frame telehandlers. Runyon Equipment Holdings which includes two subsidiaries - Runyon Equipment Rental and Runyon Surface Prep - was acquired in January 2019 by private equity firm Rock Island Capital which was now looking to realise its investment.

Runyon president Carla Runyon-Fazekas said: "We are incredibly excited about Runyon Equipment Rental's future within Sunbelt Rentals. With Sunbelt's culture, extensive resources and expertise, we are confident that the company will reach new pinnacles of success. This partnership will allow us to continue providing exceptional service to customers and will open exciting prospects for our employees in the years ahead.”
