Sammons Industrial Expands Business Portfolio

SitePro Rentals joins Sammons Industrial, Briggs Equipment focusing on material handling solutions growth

Dallas, TX, Oct. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sammons Industrial—a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sammons Enterprises, Inc. and parent company of the Enterprises’ industrial investments and operating companies—continues to expand their business portfolio with the addition of SitePro Rentals, a carve-out of Briggs Equipment’s general rental business.

Briggs Equipment has focused their business on growth in material handling solutions through the separation of the general equipment rental business from their full-service material handling operations. While the general rental equipment business has shifted to the SitePro Rentals banner, Briggs will continue to provide material handling rentals, including forklifts and trailer spotters. 

“Distinguishing our general equipment rentals from our material handling operations will allow both companies to be laser-focused on their strengths,” Sammons Industrial CEO Darron Ash said. “I believe both companies are even more well-positioned as a leader in their respective spaces and for future investment and growth."

”Briggs’ front-line focus has always been on providing best-in-class material handling solutions to our customers and having the most knowledgeable team in the industry,” Briggs Equipment US President Dan Lister said.  “We are excited to continue our focus on providing service excellence in the material handling segments and growing the solutions portfolio we are able to offer our customers. We are located in some of the fastest growing regions in the country where we will continue to invest and grow.”

Meanwhile, SitePro Rentals has implemented new systems and technology to support their 9 branches in the United States, as well as their planned branch growth in 2022 and beyond.

“We’re building SitePro from the ground up, so we’re not encumbered by legacy systems and processes like other industry players,” SitePro Rentals President Tim Rule said.  “As a result, we’re able to combine our understanding of customer needs with cutting edge technologies to create an industry-leading customer experience.”
