Stansberry represents Portable Rental & One Source Cooling in Acquisition by Sunbelt

The Stansberry Firm proudly represented Portable Rental Solutions (PRS) and its sister company One Source Cooling (OSC) in their recent acquisition by Sunbelt Rentals.  PRS, a specialty HVAC rental company was founded in 2002 by industry veteran Mr. Austin McCourt.


With locations in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Austin and Waco, Texas, PRS provides portable cooling, heating, dehumidifiers and filtration systems while OSC, the sales arm of PRS, is the exclusive North American distributor of the Airrex brand of spot coolers, heat pumps and filtration systems.


The Stansberry Firm began working with PRS and OSC in 2013, providing Operational Consulting with the ultimate goal of preparing the Companies for future sale. Mr. McCourt will remain with Sunbelt for a transition period.  He says of his experience with The Stansberry Firm:

We originally retained The Stansberry Firm three years ago to streamline and perfect my business with a long-term goal of attracting a buyer. We implemented their suggestions and earlier this year, when I was approached by two potential buyers, I asked them to step in to guide me through the process; they also identified several other potential buyers and guided me through the steps necessary that lead to the sale of my business.  I am pleased we found a buyer who will allow my management team to grow and prosper as well as offer my customers a broader range of products while retaining a high level of customer service.

Gary and Carolyn are both straight forward, honest, and true professionals.  I would highly recommend the Stansberry Firm if you are considering selling your business or just want a true evaluation of what changes need to made in your business.
