Supporting the development of a growth by acquisition strategy in equipment rental

The management team of Stephenson’s Rental Services has received strategic advisory related to the development of its growth by acquisition strategy, with a focus on the province of Quebec.

Stephenson’s Rental Services is one of the largest independent equipment rental companies in Canada, with 45 branches in Ontario and Alberta. It offers rental services for general tools and equipment, including general tools, light and heavy construction equipment, heating and scaffolding tools. The company also sells various consumables and new equipment, such as saw blades, drill bits and sandpaper, as well as used rental equipment. In addition, it provides complementary services, including equipment delivery, repair, damage waiver protection and the assembly and dismantling of scaffolding systems. Stephenson’s Rental Services serves commercial traders, home and condominium builders, general contractors, do-it-yourself clients, and institutional and industrial customers. The company is headquartered in Mississauga, Canada.

Oaklins’ team in Canada supported the management team of Stephenson’s Rental Services in this transaction.

“Oaklins advised us on our business expansion plans into the province of Quebec. Their contribution was instrumental in providing specific knowledge of Quebec’s equipment rental sector and direct access to many owners and executives in the industry. The team’s ability to establish relationships and their understanding of the sector was a key element of the advice and support we received.”
