Rental Management's cover story: Meeting the Needs of Contractors
Durante, CEO, Durante Rentals, which has four locations
New York area including the Bronx, Elmsford, Flushing and Mt.

to harder to obtain financing, more complex equipment requiring
greater mechanical expertise and attention and because the ratio of
rental rate to overall purchase cost is becoming increasingly more
"There are more customers who are renting every year as
renting equipment is becoming easier to operate
more cost effective - the inverse to the rapid increase in cost of
hiring a contractor," Durante says.

Westchester Community College's Gateway to Entrepreneurship Program
Our CFO, Chris
Jones, as a part of his on-going volunteer efforts with Westchester
Community College's Gateway to Entrepreneurship Center (G2E),
recently spent time working with seven immigrants looking to start up
local businesses. "As a second generation American, I heard the
stories of how difficult it was to make a living when my grandparents
first arrived in New York. As a young entrepreneur, there was no
one to help me avoid the mistakes I made early on. I love seeing
the enthusiasm they have for the opportunities here in America that
perhaps were not a possibility in their native countries".
Ganopolsky, an Argentinian native who ran the program for G2E said,
"The entrepreneurs really appreciated Chris' experience,
feedback and his genuineness. We hope we can get him again for our
