Casa Grande, Ariz. – May 12, 2021
ROX GROUP (ROX) this week announced the purchase of Rent-A-Can (RAC or Rent A Can) by ROX SERVICES LLC of Casa Grande. RAC was a family owned and operated portable toilet, handwashing, shower and sink rental company; RAC adds to a group of other service-related businesses under the ROX Group umbrella.
Rent A Can is the No. 1 leader in providing high quality portable toilets and service in Pinal and lower Maricopa counties for events, construction sites, weddings and disaster relief. What started as a sewer and drain service by Lonnie Hall in southern Maricopa County in 1948 expanded to a full service portable toilet rental service in Pinal County for the next generation led by Harold (Rick) Hall, Lonnie’s son.
Current principals Rick and Darlene Hall are retiring from this aspect of their family businesses. They will stay on temporarily to provide support for the acquisition. Employees of Rent A Can will continue seamlessly through the transition of ownership.
Rent A Can will continue to service Pinal and southern Maricopa counties with the same dedication and innovative approaches Rent A Can is known for in these communities. Rent A Can has a phenomenal knack for marketing and is well known for its marketing slogan on every portable restroom, “We Are #1 in the #2 Business!” The company has long standing contracts with governments, tribes, construction operations and major industrial developments in the area, including Lucid Motors.
The principals of the newly acquired Rent A Can include Rock and Elaine Earle and Mike Keck. This acquisition, when combined with other commonly owned portable restroom companies also owned by ROX related entities, will multiply the existing ROX portable toilet and services line by five times.
“We’re invested in these communities via a multitude of businesses,” says Rock Earle, CEO & founder of ROX Group. “This is another that suits our expertise and portfolio and allows us to give back in the form of jobs and services.”
Earle has been investing in western Pinal County since the 1980s, helping to develop what is now the Ak-Chin Regional Airport and the Eloy Industrial Park. He started what became ROX Group in 2004, opening ROX Real Estate in September 2008, then building it into today’s diversified ROX Group of businesses, consisting of operations in the real estate, insurance, media, construction/development and related construction services sectors.
Elaine Earle CPA joined ROX in 2012 as chief financial officer for the diverse business group to handle the multitude of mergers and acquisitions that ROX was a party to, and she has been instrumental in planning for the future expansion of the group of companies. She has led business development in all the ROX companies.
Partner Mike Keck, of Keck Investments LLC, brings over 30 years of public safety and emergency management experience in Pinal County and its local communities to drive the success of the businesses. Keck has been a partner in ROX-related entities for over 10 years as an investor and management participant.
Rent A Can plans to build on the success of the newly acquired business of Casa Grande Rent-A-Can using existing and expanded tools via ROX’s centralized accounting, marketing, human resources, facilities and management systems.
