Durante Rentals Wins SmartCEO’s Future 50 Award as One of New York’s Fastest-Growing Companies


 NEW YORK, February 20th, 2015
– Durante Rentals is being honored as one of New York’s fastest-growing companies by SmartCEO Magazine. The Future 50 Award is presented to emerging mid-sized companies in recognition of their fast-growth based on a three-year average of employee and revenue growth. The 2015 Future 50 winners collectively generate $2.5 billion in annual revenue and employ 12,136 workers in the greater New York area.

More than 400 New York based executives joined Durante Rentals and the other Future 50 honorees at a Hollywood-themed awards ceremony at Capitale in Manhattan. The evening was jam-packed with excitement as the winners celebrated their achievements while networking with other high-profile attendees over dinner and cocktails.

Durante Rentals CEO, Anthony Durante, accepted the award on behalf of the company and offered one of his many tips for success. “Listen to people for what they know and not how they dress or look, or their age.” Anthony does not believe in negativity, nor do his partners. They train their employees to recognize that situations can be dealt with swiftly and with minimal complaint or stress if they work through the problem with a positive attitude. They are unmatched by competitors in their market in the positive atmosphere they have created.

Other Future 50 companies represented at the awards ceremony included up-and-comers like Trump National Golf Club of Bedminster, Tough Mudder, APS Technology and Rethink Autism Inc. “The companies we honored this year are growing in spite of the economic hardships we have all been facing. These companies are investing in themselves, investing in their people and rising above the rest. They deserve to be recognized and celebrated because they are moving the economy and the region forward,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO Events. “We are proud to recognize them for their achievements and growth.”

Durante Rentals and the rest of the Future 50 winners are profiled in the January/February issue of SmartCEO Magazine available in print and online.

Pro Contractor Rentals Cover Story: Durante Speed! Ramp-Up with Smart Locations, High-Energy Team


NEW YORK, February 5th, 2015
– Durante Rentals is featured in the current January/February issue of Pro Contractor Rentals, a magazine catering to businesses renting construction equipment to general contractors.

Along with the cover shot, showcasing the three partners at their main Flushing, NY headquarters, the latest issue includes seven pages of in-depth coverage focusing on Durante Rentals’ overall keys to success. The article offers insight into what makes Durante Rentals one of the fastest-growing privately owned companies in America and discusses “Durante Speed”, an internal pace that is frenetic, not just day-to-day, but in terms of expansion as well.

They credit their high-energy team of employees for their “white knuckle” growth rate. “We work on the core of our employees and invest a great deal of energy and emotion into them as people. In fact, our sales growth is a barometer measuring the success our people bring to the company” says CEO Anthony Durante.

CFO, Chris Jones continues, “We bring in a lot of people with no industry experience, we train them and they continue to show how good they are in keeping this business running every day.”

The article continues to discuss their aggressive-conservatism management style and touches on their core values of speed, convenience and culture. These core values, instituted the day their doors first opened, have been a major contributing factor to their white-hot three year growth rate of 211%.

Durante Rentals was named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing companies in 2013 and 2014, coming in at #1879 and #2098 respectively.

The article also talks about on the early days at Durante, including their grand opening during the recession of 2009, their marathon round-the-clock annual meeting sessions and their ongoing focus on improvement, in all areas of the company.

The article in its entirety is available to magazine subscribers and can also be viewed here for those that do not currently have a subscription.
