Loddie Naymola and Don ShaverNational Pump and Compressor & Canadian Pump and Compressor

Our transaction with United Rentals was the largest ever in the pump rental industry and one of the largest in the history of the equipment rental industry. Catalyst provided invaluable support, analytics and insights into the rental industry and specialty rental equipment sectors that were instrumental to our success. The Catalyst team was a powerful resource in every phase of the transaction process and we will work with them again in the future.

Chris Van Mook and Jason DemmyFormer Owners of GWG Rentals, Ltd.

We’ve been in the equipment rental industry for over 30 years and have known Joe Kondrup and the Catalyst team since 1998. Catalyst worked closely with us for nearly two years supporting our business development process, culminating in a successful transaction in November 2014. Their skills and long-term commitment helped us create tremendous value prior to selling our business.

Andy StuddertFormer CEO of NES Rentals

Catalyst’s involvement and skills greatly exceeded my high expectations and added significant monetary value to the transaction for the NES shareholders. Your knowledge of the industry, its major players and their strategic and financial motivations along with your in-depth advice and counsel helped navigate a very complex transaction. Thanks again for all you and your team did to make the sale of NES a great success!

Chris and Howard NuteFormer Owner of Water Movers Equipment Rental

We worked with Joe on two highly successful transactions over a 15-year span. We first met Joe in 1999 when he was the buyer of our trench shoring company. We were so comfortable with his approach and impressed with his industry knowledge that we maintained a long-term relationship. In 2013, when it came time to sell our pump business, we knew that Joe and his team were the best choice to help us achieve our goals. Joe and the Catalyst team are equipment rental industry pros that we recommend to any private business owner.
