Company History

WECO Rentals first opened its doors in 1983.  A common question over the years has been, “where did you get the name WECO”?  WECO is an acronym for Wright Equipment Company.  Wright Equipment Company was an iconic business started in Abingdon by B.K. Wright in 1958.  They offered John Deere Construction Equipment, Farm Equipment, and Outdoor Power Equipment.  B.K. Wright’s son, Harold Wright, started WECO Rentals and ran it successfully in addition to Wright Equipment Company until his death in 1999.  WECO Rentals was purchased from Harold’s estate by David Hale & Matthew Owens shortly thereafter. 

The Future 

There have been many innovations and changes to the business environment over the years, but the keys to our success have not changed.  Quality equipment, prompt service, and straight forward pricing continue to drive our business and produce satisfied customers time and time again.  We are proud of the business we’ve built, but most of all, we are proud to be a Southwest Virginia business.  We look forward to serving our neighbors for many years to come.
