The acquisition will see Ashtead Group-owned Sunbelt add Wagner’s multi-branch business to its footprint.

Based in Jackson, Ohio, Wagner - a family owned firm - has branches in New Boston, Jackson and Chillicothe in Ohio, and in Ashland - Kentucky, covering most of southern Ohio and northern Kentucky.

Wagner was established in 1949 and offers equipment for sale and rental, including horticultural tractors, tools, scissor lifts, trailer lifts and telehandlers. It is a dealer for Genie, Biljax/Haulotte, Gehl, Manitou, Wacker Construction Equipment and Hitachi.

A statement on social media from Wagner said: “We are excited to announce the start of a new chapter at Wagner Rental & Supply. After much thought and consideration, we have decided to merge our four locations with Sunbelt Rentals and become part of their team.

“We are certain that this new chapter will result in us serving our community better and will help advance the careers of all of our current employees. After this transition, you will continue to see the same faces at each of our locations and we excited to better serve you!”
