Cooper Equipment Rentals has acquired Modern Industrial Rentals. Established in 1978, Modern Rentals is a construction and industrial equipment rental company that services Southern Alberta from its branches in Calgary and Medicine Hat. Modern Rentals offers quality, late model equipment that is supported by a highly experienced team of rental professionals.
"We are excited about the opportunity to strengthen our business in Western Canada with the addition of Modern Rentals' experienced team of rental professionals, quality equipment fleet and strategically located branch facilities," said Doug Dougherty, President of Cooper. Darryl Cooper, CEO, added, "this acquisition broadens our presence in Western Canada and allows us to bring the Cooper Difference to customers throughout Southern Alberta. We are pleased to welcome the Modern folks to the Cooper team – we know that their energy and professionalism will further strengthen the impressive team that we have established in the Western Canadian market."
Justin Wharton, Regional Manager for Southern Alberta commented, "This transaction, as a follow up to the acquisition of Alberta Lift in July 2017, will allow Cooper to leverage its position as the premium aerial equipment supplier in Southern Alberta and bring the full range of equipment rental services to Cooper's and Modern's valued customers. I am very excited to be working with the excellent team at Modern Rentals to continue our growth in Western Canada."
