Indianapolis, IN, March 2, 2020 – General Finance Corporation’s (NASDAQ:GFN) subsidiary, Pac-Van, Inc., announced its acquisition on Friday, February 28th of the storage container and storage trailer assets of Mar-Rube Trailer Rental in Baltimore, Maryland.
“The acquisition of the assets of Mar-Rube Trailer Rental significantly builds upon Pac-Van’s acquisition of Delmarva Trailer Sales and Rentals, the mobile storage business acquired by Pac-Van in 2018 that established Pac-Van’s initial location in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. market area. With the acquisition of Mar-Rube’s assets, Pac-Van has added nearly 900 additional rental units and six new staff members to our team,” said Jody Miller, CEO of General Finance Corporation. “This further expands Pac-Van’s reach into the expanding Baltimore/Washington DC area (the sixth largest MSA in the United States) and offers Pac-Van material synergies as the two locations will be combined into Delmarva’s location which will continue to provide a great opportunity for Pac-Van to deliver high quality portable storage and office space solutions throughout the market.”
