Rental Guys acquires Aba Daba

California based company Rental Guys has acquired the assets of Sacramento, California based Aba Daba Rentals which also has a branch in Citrus Heights.

Aba Daba was established in 1957 by Dale Blackwell and is currently owned and managed by Dale’s wife Vicky along with a third generation of the Blackwell family. The company has a varied fleet that includes aerial lifts and telehandlers, but which is also strong in tents and party equipment. The deal takes Rental Guys coverage to 13 locations - two in Nevada and 11 in California.

Rental Guys chief executive Alex DuBose said: “The new locations complement our existing location in Orangevale and strengthens our Northern California network of locations. We will be investing significantly in new rental fleet in the locations that serves the eastern foothill suburbs of Sacramento County.”

Vicky Blackwell added: “We had a lot of interest, including some from large companies, but felt Alex and his family owned business was the best fit for our employees.”

DuBose also posted a message that said: “Today we are announcing we have acquired Aba Daba Rentals' two locations in Sacramento and Citrus Heights. Aba Daba was a third generation family owned rental operation that was established in 1957. This acquisition was special for us on a personal level because of the friendship the Blackwell and DuBose families have had for many decades. I remember going to their Sacramento location with my dad when I was seven or eight years old to visit Dale and Vicky. Little did I know almost 20 years later that would be one of our stores. I want to thank Vicky Blackwell and the Blackwell family for believing in us to take Aba Daba into the future as part of Rental Guys. Thank you to Point of Rental Software for helping us through the transition, Paul Powers for brokering the transaction for us and lastly our team for all the hard work they put in so far to integrate the two companies.”
