Comment | More

United Rentals Inc. has teamed up with construction site services giant AMECO to service gas and oil plant maintenance and turnaround activities in the Gulf Coast region.
 
“The joint venture plans to provide full turnkey services and comprehensive offerings along with an industry-leading safety program,” the companies said in a statement. “It will offer customized solutions based on customers' needs with the ability to scale to appropriate levels quickly and nimbly.”

United Rentals boasts the largest fleet and geographic coverage for equipment rental in the U.S. AMECO provides both in-house tool and maintenance services as well as site management services during turnarounds, shutdowns and sustaining operations.

The partnership will allow the companies “to offer more inclusive solutions to customers and create opportunities that may not otherwise exist,” says United Rentals CEO Michael Kneeland. “This partnership allows both companies to expand their presence in the energy market while remaining focused on our core competencies.  For our customers, an integrated source of supply means greater productivity.

AMECO president Gary Bernardez said the venture would “provide a seamless, one-stop shop for oil and gas customers at their project sites throughout the Gulf Coast region.”

United Rentals (www.ur.com) is the largest equipment rental company in the world, with 554 rental locations in 48 states and 10 Canadian provinces as well as about 7,400 employees.

AMECO (www.ameco.com) provides integrated mobile equipment and tool services for operations fleets and construction sites. AMECO is a division of Fluor Corp., a Fortune 200 global design, building and maintenance company.
