LUTZ M&A ADVISES MIDWEST SCAFFOLD SERVICE ON ITS SALE TO SUNBELT RENTALS

BILL KENEDY, LUTZ CONSULTING AND M&A SHAREHOLDER
bob loewens, LUTZ M&A manager

 

Lutz M&A announced that it served as exclusive financial advisor to Midwest Scaffold Service (“MWSS” or the “Company”), in connection with its acquisition by Sunbelt Rentals, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ashtead Group (LSE:AHT). Based in Omaha, Nebraska, MWSS rents, constructs and dismantles a fleet of scaffolding and related equipment including sectional, systems and swing stage scaffold, plastic enclosures and trash chutes. In addition to its Omaha headquarters MWSS has offices in Des Moines, Iowa, and Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado. Ashtead Group is an international equipment rental company headquartered in London. Sunbelt Rentals, the second largest equipment rental company in the U.S., is the largest of Ashtead’s three operating subsidiaries. Sunbelt’s acquisition of MWSS closed in September 2019.

Midwest Scaffold Service was founded in 2002 by Company President Tim Weber, who had extensive industry experience prior to founding MWSS. Over the years Mr. Weber and MWSS’ reputation grew in the Omaha market eventually leading to it becoming the leading scaffold rental Company in the area. Further, opportunities arose in 2007, 2011, and 2012 to open branches in Denver, Colorado Springs and Des Moines, respectively. Mr. Weber will remain with Sunbelt in a consulting role for one year following the transaction. However, Mr. Weber’s son, Rusty Weber, will continue under Sunbelt’s ownership in his current role as head of the Omaha operations.

Mr. Weber stated, “MWSS’s new ownership under Sunbelt is an ideal scenario for the Company and our employees. Their financial capacity will allow us to expand our rental fleet to further serve our existing markets.” On working with Lutz M&A, Mr. Weber said, “Lutz represented MWSS very well and brought multiple options to the table, allowing us to evaluate the best new owner for our Company.”

Commenting for Lutz M&A, Bob Loewens added, “We appreciated the opportunity to work with Tim and MWSS on this transaction. Sunbelt made perfect sense as a buyer with their strategic interest in developing a scaffold presence across the Midwest. We are happy of the outcome for Tim and his Company.”
