Volvo Rents secures Iowa company

August 2012, Vol. 67 No. 8

Volvo Rents has acquired Aerial Platform Experts, a single-location construction equipment rental company located in Davenport, IA.

The move comes on the heels of a new study by the Associated General Contractors of America that lists Iowa No. 4 in percentage growth of construction jobs for the 12 months ending in February.

Andy Fliege, who co-founded Aerial Platform Experts in 2005, will remain active with the operations of the store as manager. All 14 of Aerial’s employees will remain employed by Volvo Rents.
