A certified woman owned business by both New York City and New York State, Our Rental Pumps LLC has grown slowly over time, focusing on high standards, a true understanding of the industry and client needs, and the basic idea that no project is too complex.
Samantha Ruttura, president, says since its founding in 2011, the company’s fleet has expanded to include 10 concrete pumps and a telebelt. The company’s operations are lean with four competent staff maintaining the office and shop. “We provide trained, capable and American Concrete Pumping Association Safety certified operators to run the equipment but they work directly for our customers. Because of our strong relationship with our customers they trust we are providing the best operators for the project and employ them for their projects.”
Focused on projects in the New York Tri-State Area, Our Rental Pumps works largely with commercial contractors working on civil projects including bridges, MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) work, stadiums, and other large scale projects in the Tri-State Area. The company recently placed concrete for the base of One Vanderbilt. “We are proud to have been a part of the largest continuous pour in midtown Manhattan.”
Ruttura says, as part of ensuring each job runs smoothly and safely, Our Rental Pumps’ sales manager visits each site to ensure the right equipment is provided for the specific job. “Often in the city there are space limitations which can affect what size pump that can be used. It is our job to ensure the customer gets the correct equipment for any given job.”
This service and attention to each project, she says, is part of the personal relationships that are key to the business’ success and part of ensuring the best product and the right product for each client and each situation.
Another key focus is safety which Our Rental Pumps ensures by requiring all operators to go through the American Concrete Pumping Association (ACPA)’s safety program and be up to date on all ACPA Safety certifications.
Concrete pumps and telebelts are also inspected according to the manufacture’s requirements. “This is not required by law but we strive to maintain our fleet to the highest safety standards so we make these inspections a priority.”
Ruttura says active membership in ACPA, attending conventions and educational sessions are also key to increasing safety and awareness when placing concrete. “As a small, family-type business we want to ensure the safety of our staff and our extended family of clients.”
Our Rental Pumps also provides service and parts from top name brands.
