National Equipment Dealers LLC finalized the acquisition of Carolina Equipment Rental, Sales & Service, located in Fairview, N.C. Carolina Equipment began in the mid 1990s, originally doing business as Rent-It of Fairview. The owners, Peter and Ellen Jensen, purchased the business in the year 2000.

Under its new ownership and management, the company originally supported the Fariview, N.C., community with small equipment and tool rental. In 2004, the Jensens changed the name of the company to Carolina Equipment Rental, Sales & Service, in order to re-focus their business strategy away from “DIY” residential customers, and more toward small-to-medium sized contractors, site development companies, and municipalities.

Carolina Equipment started representing the Yanmar Construction Equipment line in 2002. Since that time, as it expanded, Carolina Equipment picked up additional compact equipment and forestry lines, including ASV compact track loaders, Fecon mulching attachments and others.

“NED is proud to welcome the Carolina Equipment family of employees to our growing organization,” said Jesse Beasley, chief operations officer, NED. “This acquisition will further improve our ability to support our western North Carolina customer base.”

The new NED branch in Fletcher, N.C., will continue to represent Yanmar Construction Equipment, ASV, and Fecon, along with additional brands currently represented by NED in North Carolina, including Hyundai Construction Equipment, Bell Trucks, Dynapac, Sakai soil rollers, Manitou, Tana, XCMG, Prinoth, Barko and others.
