Resolute Industrial Holdings, LLC (“Resolute”) a leading independent provider of HVAC and power solutions, announced that it has acquired the assets of DriExpress Rentals and Empire (“DRi”) as a division of their rental solutions branch, Mobile Air & Power Rentals (“MAPR”).

Based in Santa Barbara CA, DRi was founded in 2006 by Pete Miko after Hurricane Katrina, when the need for disaster restoration services proved to be needed. In 2008, William Leo joined the team and helped to create new large loss solutions. Today the company serves the entire nation, offering 24/7 service in addition to their pristine equipment rentals.

With this addition, MAPR will continue to service the nation with their extensive footprint, existing equipment, and the added 5,000 assets.

“With this acquisition we will now have a new rental division, Mobile DRi – Disaster Resource Solutions. This not only enables both companies to better serve our customers, but allows us to reach a new, niche market.” said Mike McGraw, CEO of Resolute. “This acquisition also broadens our geographic presence and allows us to increase our 24/7, full turnkey solution offerings. We are excited to welcome the DRi team to the Resolute Industrial family.”

“With MAPR’s history as an industry leader in temporary climate control & power solutions and DRi's national disaster restoration rental experience, it is a great fit. Using the support of additional locations, our team can bring their experience in disaster restoration to the table, enhancing Mobile Air & Power Rentals’ large loss and storm work support.” said Pete Miko, Owner/Principle of DRi.

“Joining Resolute is exciting for everyone involved. We now have greater resources to support the organization with disaster relief solutions while also delivering industry-leading solutions to our customers” said William Leo, President of Empire.
