ComRent, a provider in mission-critical load bank rentals, announced that its founder and CEO Clayton Taylor was named an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist in Maryland.
After starting ComRent in 1997 with just one employee, Taylor led ComRent through continuous year-over-year growth that includes 20 operating locations with more than 100 employees in the U.S., Canada, Brazil and Saudi Arabia. ComRent has been on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies for the past four years and has a lengthy customer list that includes leading global corporations.
“Before mission-critical facilities such as data centers, wind farms and nuclear power plants come online, they must be fully tested to identify potential power and performance issues,” Clayton said. “In many cases, connecting the facilities to the local power grid for testing is not an option. To alleviate this problem, ComRent provides self-contained, electrical and thermal load banks that produce expected power loads, and fully test facilities without compromising local power sources. We’re proud to be recognized for our ongoing commitment to these important initiatives.”
