TAL Holdings, Vancouver, Wa., has agreed in principle to acquire Harbor Rental and Saw Shop, Friday Harbor, Wa., complementing its Browne’s Home Center branch, which is also in Friday Harbor.
Harbor Rental has been a trusted name in the San Juan Island community since 1974, providing equipment and tool rental, small engine repair, and lawn mower sales.
“The acquisition of Harbor Rental is a key component of TAL’s growth strategy,” said TAL CEO Jason Blair. “This acquisition will allow us to diversify our business profile, expand our service offerings, and better support the San Juan Island community. By incorporating Harbor Rental and allocating millions of dollars towards the renovation of Browne’s Home Center, we demonstrate our dedication to helping build better communities for many years into the future.”
Owned by the Olshefsky family for 36 years, Harbor Rental has operated under a commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction. Darren Olshefsky, current manager and one of the owners, said, “We are excited for this partnership, as it will provide our employees with additional resources and growth opportunities, benefiting all parties involved—employees, customers, and vendors.”
Effective May 1, Harbor Rental officially joined the TAL family of companies and continues to operate under the same name. With the acquisition, TAL now has a total of 30 locations in Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.
