Sunbelt Rentals announced this week that it has acquired the assets of R&R Rentals, a three-location equipment rental company located in the greater Seattle area.
“We weren’t for sale when this opportunity arose, but after careful consideration it was the best move for me, my family and for R&R,” said Troy Roper, owner of R&R Rentals. “We are very pleased to have sold to Sunbelt as it’s a good fit for our employees and customers alike.”
Troy and Kate Roper started in the rental industry by buying a small existing rental company, Bellevue Rentals, in 2002. R&R expanded into North Bend, Wash., in 2003 with the acquisition of Crystal Rentals. It opened its Renton, Wash., location in 2004 building it from the ground up.
“I’d like to thank Fred Hageman of Rental Business Advisors for his handling of the entire process and getting our deal done with Sunbelt,” said Roper. Fred Hageman of Rental Business Advisors represented R&R Rentals in the transaction.
Troy and Kate Roper recently formed R&R Group Idaho LLC, which then acquired the assets of A-1 Rental Inc., a two-location equipment rental company located in Rexburg and Idaho Falls, Idaho. Troy and the R&R Group Idaho LLC still own A-R Rental in Idaho.
