NESCO Specialty Rentals has completed the acquisition of N&L Line Equipment. N&L manufactures many products related to the live-line maintenance of electric utility lines, including transmission tools up to 800 kV, substation maintenance tools, as well as distribution hotline tools.

N&L pairs the manufacturing of their premium line of tools with an industry-leading rubber testing laboratory and tool repair service. The company has the capability to test and certify all types of insulating rubber goods and insulated tools, as well as repair and refurbish all commonly used tools, hot sticks, and grounds. N&L also offers calibration services for dynamometers, gas monitors, voltage detectors. N&L is a top-line distributor for many recognized brands, along with offering a custom ground and jumper manufacturing service, to exactly meet the needs of their customers.

NESCO customers will also receive access to N&L’s state-of-the-art tracking and reporting software, which allows users to see the status or history of any order, repair, or calibration in real-time, and communicate directly with the technician assigned to each individual item. This software is accessible anywhere, through any device with an internet connection.

N&L Line Equipment will become part of NESCO’s Utility Equipment Outfitters (UEO) division. In 2015, NESCO created the UEO division to focus on offering parts, tools and accessories (PTA) to the Utility, Rail and Communication markets, as well as other specialized industries. This acquisition will now make UEO a better rental, sales and online resource in providing all the PTA needs for these specialty markets.
