Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Sherman + Reilly, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, has named NESCO Rents its national rental partner. 

“With its focus on safety and the introduction of an entirely new generation of overhead and underground pullers and tensioners, Sherman + Reilly represents an ideal step forward for NESCO”, said NESCO CEO, Lee Jacobson. Michael Dunn, CEO of Sherman + Reilly, said, “It’s not often you find a partner that shares the same vision and values on service, customer support and equipment safety.

 These values convinced us that NESCO represented an ideal fit for our new offerings.”

Starting in mid-September, NESCO will begin to rent the entire line of equipment offered by Sherman + Reilly including underground and overhead distribution pullers and tensioners, transmission-class pullers and tensioners, distribution and transmission blocks -- both single and bundle, and specialty products including reconductoring reels.

The new Sherman + Reilly equipment is all part of its “Revolution Series” and provides full electronic controls, digital recording of pulling and tensioning forces, where applicable, Safe-Zone cabs with full environmental control and equipment diagnostics to insure maximum reliability and uptime.
