Norwalk, CT & Flushing, NY [2/13/15] – Durante Rentals, a leading construction equipment, and tool rental company in the New York Tristate area, has joined the SmartEquip Network. Featured extensively in the press as one of the country’s fastest-growing private enterprises, Durante Rentals is scheduled to go live with SmartEquip across all locations by March.
“We are a forward-thinking and tech-savvy company that is constantly looking toward innovation to fuel our growth, which makes for a very natural partnership with SmartEquip,” notes John Durante, the company’s co-founder. “By joining the Network, we can implement best operating practices for both service and parts management across the equipment life cycle, while also fully automating our procurement activity.
