Subject: Vandalia Rental Acquires Steffen’s Rental

To our valued customers,

Effective May 20, 2019, Vandalia Rental has acquired all the business assets of Steffen’s Rental.

The acquisition occurred in response to the increasing demand for industrial rental equipment in Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

The region is home for 2 million people, with over 60% of those residents living within 5 miles of I-75. Strategically located along the I-75 corridor in Florence, Kentucky, Steffen’s Rental helps to support Vandalia Rental’s commitment to customer service and delivery of the right equipment at the right time.

Kurt Barney, President of Vandalia Rental, shares, “Steffen’s Rental has serviced the needs of the local Northern Kentucky community in one way or another as far back as the 1870s. Vandalia Rental has—and continues—to service the equipment rental needs of Dayton/Cincinnati customers since 1961. Both Vandalia and Steffen’s Rental share a common belief in selflessly putting the needs of our customers’ first, providing unparalleled service, and the highest quality rental equipment.

The addition of Steffen’s locations to the three existing Vandalia Rental locations allows the company to offer a much broader fleet mix, be more responsive to customer needs, and offer our equipment rental across a much wider geographic area.  With this addition, Vandalia Rental is within a 30-minute travel radius of customers as far north as Sidney, OH and as far south as Dry Ridge, KY.”

Arden Steffen, President of Steffen’s Rental, offered the following, “It is with great pleasure that we announce the merger of Steffen’s Rental and Vandalia Rental. These two long-standing equipment rental businesses have paralleled each other in their values and beliefs, as well as their approach to customers, staff, and the community. It is a very exciting time for the rental industry.”

What should new customers come to expect?

Vandalia Rental is a recognized leader in customer service and equipment availability. Contractors who visit any one of the 4 locations can pull from thousands of units of inventory for any project big or small. It doesn’t matter pickup or onsite delivery, contractors have come to count on Vandalia Rental day in and day out to support their growing business.
