Deep Dive: United Rentals Acquisition of Ahern

Deep Dive: United Rentals Acquisition of Ahern

Earlier this week, it was announced that United Rentals completed a $2B acquisition of Ahern Rentals.

This is the heavyweight acquisition of 2022 in the equipment rental world.

But – was it a good one?

We here at The Heavy have compiled an analysis of location and population data to begin to answer that question.

Our data answers key questions:

  • Which states have the most combined locations?
  • Which states have the greatest increase of locations for United Rentals?
  • In which states was Ahern a more dominant player than United Rentals?
  • Which states are most likely to see location shut downs?

And we’re giving the data away for FREE.
