Company Profile and Business Description for McGrath RentCorp

McGrath RentCorp, incorporated on March 27, 1979, is a diversified business-to-business rental company. The Company has four rental divisions: relocatable modular buildings, portable storage containers, electronic test equipment, and liquid and solid containment tanks and boxes. The Company operates through four business segments: modular building and portable storage segment (Mobile Modular); electronic test equipment segment (TRS-RenTelco); a subsidiary providing containment solutions for the storage of hazardous and non-hazardous liquids and solids segment (Adler Tanks), and a subsidiary classroom manufacturing business selling modular buildings used primarily as classrooms in California (Enviroplex). The Mobile Modular business segment includes Mobile Modular Portable Storage division.

Mobile Modular

The Company's Mobile Modular business segment purchases modulars from manufacturers building to Mobile Modular's design specifications. Mobile Modular operates from regional sales and inventory centers in California, Texas, and Florida, serving geographic areas in these states, and sales offices serving North Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The California, Texas and Florida regional sales and inventory centers have in-house infrastructure and operational capabilities to support repair, modification, and refurbishment of equipment for the next rental opportunity.

The Mobile Modular segment maintains and repairs its rental equipment. When rental equipment returns from a customer, the necessary repairs and preventative maintenance are performed prior to its next rental. Mobile Modular builds regional sales and inventory centers and an installed customer base under a single overhead structure. In addition to operating its rental fleet, Mobile Modular sells modulars to customers.


As of December 31, 2016, the Company's TRS-RenTelco rented and sold electronic test equipment nationally and internationally from three facilities located in Grapevine, Texas (the Dallas facility), Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Canada (the Montreal facility) and Bangalore, Karnataka, India (the Bangalore facility).

The Montreal facility houses sales engineers and operations staff to serve the Canadian market. The Bangalore facility houses sales engineers and operations staff to serve the Indian market. Engineers, technicians and scientists utilize general purpose electronic test equipment in developing products, controlling manufacturing processes, completing field service applications and evaluating the performance of their own electrical and electronic equipment. These instruments are rented primarily to aerospace, defense, electronics, industrial, research and semiconductor industries.

Communications test equipment, including fiber optic test equipment, is utilized by technicians, engineers and installation contractors to evaluate voice, data and multimedia communications networks, to install fiber optic cabling, and in the development and manufacturing of transmission, network and wireless products. These instruments are rented primarily to manufacturers of communications equipment and products, electrical and communications installation contractors, field technicians and service providers. TRS-RenTelco's general purpose test equipment rental inventory includes oscilloscopes, amplifiers, analyzers (spectrum, network and logic), signal source and power source test equipment. The communications test equipment rental inventory includes network and transmission test equipment for various fiber, copper and wireless networks.
