“Elite and its affiliates have dependably served the needs of contractors, sub-contractors and building concerns throughout our mutual footprint for many years,” said Steve Laganas, ABLE’s CEO. “The company offered a wide range of rental products while providing site and general trade services to a loyal customer base.

We are extremely excited that the Elite Construction Rental Team has joined the ABLE Equipment Rental team.

“Strategically, this partnership with Elite will allow us to continue to serve as a dependable provider of aerial equipment and service to Elite’s current customer base,” addedChris Pera, ABLE’s COO. “Additionally, we’ll be able to offer a broader product range for both rent and sale, further fulfilling Elite’s customer equipment needs.”
