Richard Ouye founded Service Rentals & Supplies over 40 years ago in Kahului, Maui. But his family ties to the construction industry go all the way back to the early 50’s when his father and brother first started a company called “Service Contracting.”
In the beginning, Richard set up his equipment rental shop behind Service Contracting next to Haleakala Dairy on Dairy Road. He started out with small equipment like Jumping Jacks, plate tampers, air compressors and backhoes. Then in 1972 he opened a full service rental facility off Alamaha Street.
Today Richard’s son, Ryan, oversees SR locations on Maui, Oahu, Kona Hawaii and Kauai ”“ while making sure the quality and service his grandfather inspired a half century ago is still a top priority.
What began as one small location in Kahului eventually grew to one of the largest equipment rental companies in the state. Service Rentals & Supplies, Inc is now the premier one stop shop for all of Hawaii’s equipment rental needs. The company proudly services a diverse base of customers from contractors to homeowners; from industrial companies to government.
