Clark Burton has acquired Hays Rental, a cornerstone rental business in El Dorado, Ark., for nearly 50 years. The transition of ownership took place on September 1st, marked by a rebranding of the business as Flying B Rental. Burton is also the owner of Henley’s Feed & Farm Supply in El Dorado.
Hays Rental, established in 1974, has been an integral part of the equipment rental sector, providing a wide range of offerings catering to residential, industrial, and special event needs. Particularly renowned for its comprehensive range of products, including medical equipment, lifts, power tools, lighting, tents, inflatables, and the region's premier portable toilets service, Hays Rental has been a stalwart of the local economy.
John Hays, the founder, instilled a legacy of customer-centric service that continues to be the foundation of Flying B Rental under Burton's leadership, Burton said. While the name may change, the commitment to upholding this storied tradition of top-notch service remains unwavering.
"We're stepping into the future while honoring the past," said Burton. "John Hays built a business rooted in exceptional customer service, and we're thrilled to carry that legacy forward. We might have a new name, but our dedication to history, service, and the provision of essential products to businesses and industries will remain unchanged."
Flying B Rental, operating from its well-established location, will offer a broad spectrum of products and services. These include a comprehensive selection of industrial equipment such as lifts, power tools, lighting, pressure washing, painting equipment, concrete tools, air compressors, and digging machinery. In addition, a diverse range of home and lawn tools will be available for rental. The company's renowned party and events department will continue to provide tents, tables, chairs, inflatables, games, and luxury toilets for special occasions. Notably, as the foremost provider of portable toilets in the region, Flying B Rental will also offer hand wash stations for both industrial use and special events.
"We have an accomplished team of professionals dedicated to ensuring the utmost customer satisfaction," said Burton. "With the imminent expansion of the thoroughfare and our prominent location on West Hillsboro, we are excited to fortify our presence in the community and contribute to its growth for the next 50 years."
