Shawn Parks and Jim Freeman, co-owners of Rentquip Canada Limited are pleased to announce the acquisition of both Patron Products Inc. (Canada) and Patron Products USA Inc. The transaction is effective September 1, 2010. Since 1991 Patron has been a leading supplier to the Canadian and US construction, rental, and special event markets. They have earned a reputation for manufacturing high quality and efficient portable electric, propane and indirect-fired heaters. Patron heaters are known to meet the rigorous demands of North American rental companies. All products will continue to be marketed under the Patron name, however all sales and services will be conducted by Rentquip Canada. “The addition of Patron to the Rentquip product offering will complete the current line of heaters”, says Shawn Parks, co-owner of Rentquip Canada. “We have always, been impressed by the quality and efficiency of the Patron line. This is the next logical step for Rentquip and fits well with our strategy of working closely with key manufacturers to provide the sales and service support required by the rental industry.” Jim Freeman goes on to explain that Patron Products USA of Buffalo, NY will become Rentquip USA Limited. The US side of the business will continue uninterrupted and provide an excellent opportunity for Rentquip to establish itself and potentially increase the product offering to existing American Patron accounts.
