Jim Boddez knows western Canadian rentals. He’s been working in the industry since the late ‘80s, including 16 years with Finning where he was involved with the acquisition of several rental stores. Since 2016, he and his brother, Bob, and business partner, Craig Barnstable, have been building Five Bo into a major rental equipment supply house in the prairies and B.C. Now, with the acquisition of Hy-Cor, they are turning their eyes to Ontario. Boddez joined Counter Talks to talk about mergers and acquisitions in the rental industry; the western Canadian rental market; the rapid growth of Five Bo and much more.
