Ohio Transmission Corp., an industrial equipment service provider and distributor headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, this week announced the acquisition of Critical Rental Solutions, a provider of oil-free air and temperature control rental equipment throughout the United States. Critical Rental Solutions will operate under OTC’s Air Supply Group.
Headquartered in Houston for the past 37 years, Critical Rental Solutions has grown to two sales and field service locations in Texas and has approximately 42 employees.
Adam Gibbs, president of OTC’s Air Supply Group, said, “Having CRS join our robust family of compressor brands and products will allow OTC to offer best-in-class compressed air solutions to a wide range of end markets throughout North America. CRS will complement our service and product offerings with their industry knowledge and unique and expansive fleet of oil-free rental compressors, dryers and temperature control units. Whether customers are looking for aftermarket support, new equipment, short term rental solutions or our DirectAIR utility air solution, OTC will now be a one-stop shop with the help of CRS.”
“We are all extremely excited to join the OTC family,” said Mark Shedd, CRS president. “When one starts the process of transitioning a company that they and their team have invested countless hours and efforts to build, it is a very personal experience. It is important that the new partner share a common vision for its people and customers. Given this criteria, we could not have handpicked a better organization than OTC. Our market leading capabilities and customer service will only improve, and I see nothing but positives for all involved.”
With this acquisition, Ohio Transmission Corp. now has 57 locations throughout the United States, along with more than 36 service shops.
The addition of Critical Rental Solutions associates expands Ohio Transmission Corporation’s workforce to nearly 1500 employees.
