Durante Rentals, a leader in construction equipment rentals in the New York area with locations in Queens, the Bronx, Mt. Vernon and Elmsford, announced its new location with the acquisition of Quality Rent All Inc. Its fifth location, and third outside of the five boroughs of New York, is located in the town of Kent at 333 Route 52, Carmel, N.Y.

Quality Rent All was established in 1989 by founders Tim and Marilyn Plummer.

“The Plummers built a really nice business over the years and we are pleased that they will be our first acquisition. We are eager to welcome Quality Rent All customers and their staff to the Durante team,” said John Durante, president of Durante Rentals. “We are extremely excited to work with their nephew, Lou Alagno, who has been promoted to manage the new store. Lou has 16 years of experience working for his aunt and uncle and has literally ‘grown up’ in the business.”

Durante Rentals will expand the current product line with the addition of new equipment categories like boom lifts, loaders, excavators, light towers and generators. There will be a large Takeuchi earth-moving machine presence as Durante Rentals, under the New York Takeuchi brand, is the area’s authorized Takeuchi dealer offering new and used excavators, skid steers, track and wheeled loaders for sale.

“This acquisition is critical to our rapid growth strategy in the New York area. It allows us to better serve our valued customers located north of our current Elmsford location,” said CEO Anthony Durante. “It is perfectly aligned with our long-term goal of developing emerging markets to expand our overall presence.”

“Durante Rentals has been extremely successful opening up cold starts in the N.Y. Metro area. While there are sure to be challenges ahead, I know our talented staff will do a great job of integrating an existing company into our culture and our way of doing business,” said Chris Jones, CFO and co-founder of Durante Rentals. “This successful integration will serve as the template for other potential acquisitions in the area.”

With every new location it opens, Durante makes a commitment to the community it does business in with strong ties to local charities, municipalities and other local businesses, according to the company.
