In March, 2005, NationsRent Companies Inc. was appointed as a full service Case Equipment dealer for most of Massachusetts, all of Rhode Island and most of Connecticut.

As a factory-authorized Case dealer offering sales, service, parts and technical support, the new NationsRent locations provide a comprehensive range of Case products and services.

The dealership is headquartered in Shrewsbury, MA, with additional full-service branches in Hyde Park and Woburn, MA, and Newington, CT. The company also has two express locations that provide Case parts and service in Worcester, MA, and Cranston, RI.

To lead the dealerships, NationsRent hired James McGinley, a veteran in the industry, as the dealership general manager. McGinley will report directly to the NationsRent northeast regional vice president, Bill Stewart. McGinley, Stewart and other members of the local management team hold more than 100 years of collective equipment sales and service experience.

Jeff Putman, NationsRent CEO, said, “We are very enthusiastic about the opportunity to team with Case in the Northeast. This move is a significant step in our strategic direction toward a full service offering. The Case dealership is both complimentary to our rental business and critical to our ability to provide sales, parts and support to our customers.”

NationsRent’s headquarters is in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and operates from 267 locations (including 100 at Lowe’s Home Improvement locations) in 26 states. NationsRent stores offer a broad range of equipment for rent or sale, along with parts, merchandise and support.

Case Construction Equipment sells and supports a full line of construction equipment, including loaders, backhoes, articulated trucks, excavators, motorgraders, wheel loaders, vibratory compaction rollers, crawler dozers, skid steers and rough-terrain forklifts.
