When Durante Rentals first set up shop in the Bronx in 2009, its future was, at least to outsiders, uncertain.
The construction equipment-rental company-which rents out forklifts, excavators, generators, and more to general contractors-opened its doors during one of the worst economic climates in recent history. Further, the business was facing competitors with billion-dollar operations and publicly traded stock.

Annual Summer Company Outing

With Manhattan in the backdrop and a beaming full moon - a great time was had by all as we ate, drank and danced the night away.
