Essex Equipment Joins Sunbelt Rentals

Essex Equipment has joined the Sunbelt Rentals family, effective November 19th, 2021. The Kubota dealership has been sold to Champlain Valley Equipment.  They can be reached at 802-879-0767.     

Since 1973, Essex Equipment (“Essex”) has served Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York as a general tool equipment provider. The business has primarily catered to the needs of local commercial contractors through its fleet of aerial, light dirt, heavy dirt, and general rental equipment. 

We are happy to welcome Essex to the Sunbelt Rentals team. This exciting development enlarges our footprint in the Northeast and provides Essex’s valued customers with access to a more diverse product and service offering. Backed by an expansive national network and a fleet in excess of $11 billion, Sunbelt Rentals is North America’s premiere equipment rental company and services a variety of customers, including commercial, residential, industrial and specialty contractors, through a highly diversified mix of rental equipment.

With the addition of two new General Tool & Equipment locations in Vermont, Sunbelt Rentals can better serve the greater Burlington market by providing an effective rental solution for any project or job, including infrastructure, residential or commercial construction, facility maintenance, or homeowner applications.
