Shippensburg, Pa.-based Volvo Rents has acquired Max Equipment Rentals, a two-location construction equipment rental company with stores in Oceanside and Perris. The acquisition comes two months after Volvo Rents purchased SoCal Rental Equip Rent, bringing Volvo Rents’ California locations to seven.

Max Equipment Rentals was founded by Bob McDaris and Mason Bailey in 2000. McDaris will continue as Volvo Rents’ southwest division sales manager. Bailey will remain as a consultant for a short period of time.

“This transaction provides a long-term bridge toward a successful future for both the Oceanside and Perris stores,” said McDaris.
