Our History
Our mentor Bob Byrne had a dream that he could bring a new type of business called Rental to central Connecticut.  That dream became a reality in in 1969 when he opened Taylor Rental Center in Portland CT.  In 1979, Bob moved his business to Middletown, CT to its present location; 30 deKoven Drive close by to Wesleyan University, Main Street Middletown, and Route 9.  In 1985 Byrne took the company independent to form Connecticut Rental Centers Inc. with his son Tom Byrne by his side.  In 2011 Bob retired and his son Tom took over ownership and management of the business. Now Tom, his wife Dawn, and his sons Garrett and Riley continue growing the family business adding new and exciting rental equipment every year.

A large variety products and equipment are available for special events, parties, corporate functions, and much more! We focus our service area on the counties of Middlesex, Hartford, New Haven, and New London.
