Dynapac North America Strengthens Dealer Network with Addition of Durante Equipment

HOLLYWOOD, FL — Dynapac North America LLC, a manufacturer of equipment for compaction and paving applications, announces the addition of Durante Equipment to its growing dealer network. Durante Equipment rents, sells, and supports the complete Dynapac portfolio in Southern Florida to include Broward, Collier, Hendry, Lee, and Palm Beach counties.

“I have had the privilege of representing Dynapac products most of my life. In the 1990s, while working for my father, we were very fortunate to become the Dynapac Dealer for New York City," said John Durante, Durante Equipment CEO. "I was very excited and proud that Dynapac has chosen my new venture Durante Equipment to continue representing their products. Becoming the dealer for Palm-Beach, Broward, Collier, Hendry, and Lee Counties will allow our company to become the go-to for rentals, sales, parts, and service in south Florida.”

John Durante has over 25 years of experience in the construction rental equipment industry and, having grown and sold not one but two previous construction rental equipment companies, John Durante knows what it takes to create an experience and service for customers looking for equipment rentals and sales. Both of his previous companies were Rental Equipment Register RER100, the 100 largest rental companies in the United States, and one of his previous sold companies was also an INC 5000 company seven years in a row.

“At Durante Equipment we pride ourselves on providing old school customer service," said Steve Halliwell, Durante Equipment President. "Dynapac has been the No. 1 Compaction Brand for 85 years. Their quality and reputation in this industry speaks for itself.”

“While Durante Equipment is a new Dynapac dealer, Owner John Durante and Dynapac have a relationship that spans over 20 years," said Dynapac North America Vice President of Sales, Jamie Roush. "When announced that John intended to open Durante Equipment in South Florida, Dynapac was thrilled to be chosen as their compaction and paving equipment partner."
