The transaction adds approximately 2,100 employees, 60,000 rental assets and 106 locations to United Rentals in the United States, and makes the company’s specialty rental solutions available to thousands of new construction and industrial customers.

Matthew Flannery, CEO of United Rentals, said, “Today we completed the Ahern acquisition on schedule and welcomed over two thousand colleagues to Team United. The integration is off to a strong start, giving us significantly more capacity to serve our expanded customer base.
