TAL Holdings agreed to acquire Harbor Rental and Saw Shop, located in Friday Harbor, Wash. Harbor Rental provides equipment and tool rental, small engine repair, and lawn mower sales to customers in the San Juan Island community.
“The acquisition of Harbor Rental is a key component of TAL’s growth strategy,” TAL CEO Jason Blair said in a prepared statement. “This acquisition will allow us to diversify our business profile, expand our service offerings, and better support the San Juan Island community. By incorporating Harbor Rental and allocating millions of dollars towards the renovation of Browne’s Home Center, which is also situated in Friday Harbor, we demonstrate our dedication to helping build better communities for many years into the future.”
Effective May 1, Harbor Rental and Saw Shop will officially join the TAL family of companies. Harbor Rental will continue to operate under its existing brand name following the acquisition. Blair said the reputation and customer service dedication of Harbor Rental “perfectly aligns” with TAL Holdings’ “core values and mission to help build better communities.”
“We are excited for this partnership, as it will provide our employees with additional resources and growth opportunities, benefiting all parties involved—employees, customers, and vendors,” Darren Olshefksy, Harbor Rental and Saw Shop manager said.
Vancouver, Wash.-based TAL Holdings operates 30 locations in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. The TAL family of brands include Badger Building Center, Bayview Building Supply of Elma, Best Built Builders Supply, Browne’s Home Center, Gerretsen Building Supply, Lake Chelan Building Supply, Marson and Marson Lumber, Midway Building Supply, Miller’s Home Center, Mount Vernon Building Center, and Tum-A-Lum Lumber.
