EquipmentShare is growing. Fast.

EquipmentShare is revolutionizing the equipment renting and owning experience for contractors. With renting and owning options that put the contractor first and cutting-edge tracking software, we’re catapulting the dated construction industry into the modern age. EquipmentShare’s telematics platform and construction technology solutions provide our customers with the opportunity to work smarter — not harder.

In 2018, EquipmentShare opened nine more construction yards, expanded into 15 new markets across the nation and hired more than 200 motivated and ambitious new employees. After a booming year of business and growth, EquipmentShare was voted Best Place to Work 2018 and was awarded the 2018 Fast Track Award by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce as one of the fastest growing companies in the state.

And we’re continuing to rapidly grow in 2019. We are looking to add a General Business Analyst to help us continue to grow with intention in 2019. This position will play an integral role in our continued expansion and contribute to our ever-evolving business strategy as we modernize the construction industry, which was valued at $10.6 trillion in 2017 and is estimated to grow to $12.7 trillion in 2020.

So, Who the Heck is EquipmentShare?

While they were both running their own construction companies, brothers Willy and Jabbok Schlacks were frustrated with the lackluster options they had for renting equipment. Renting was expensive, but owning a piece of equipment was just as costly; plus, it came with long-term maintenance expenses. Contractors didn’t have good choices when it came to renting and owning equipment.

So Willy and Jabbok created one. With more than 40 years of combined construction experience, the brothers sought to revolutionize the construction industry by creating EquipmentShare, which began as a peer-to-peer rental platform for contractors to rent equipment to one another. In fall 2014, EquipmentShare was the winning business at Startup Weekend in Columbia, Mo., where the Schlacks brothers and several others founded the business.

But the rental platform was just one piece of the puzzle. As the company grew, EquipmentShare built a telematics platform and technology solutions for tracking equipment, monitoring fleet health and usage, and more so contractors could not only rent equipment easier but also gain insightful data on their fleet to inform future business decisions. EquipmentShare’s renting, owning and tracking solutions innovated a dated industry where change is slow to take place and technology is often not used to its full business-improving potential.

Since 2014, EquipmentShare has grown from a startup built in a weekend to a force of more than 1,000 individuals working to build construction technology solutions for the modern-day contractor.
