A Clear Dream
In 1977 the rental industry, along with the Arizona economy, was in a serious downturn. Many “experts” including those at Apache Rentals (the company where our founder, Mike Watts was employed), thought the industry would never be viable again.
The Sunstate Core Values represent the guiding principles and beliefs that have created our distinct business culture. Although advocated and espoused verbally by Mike in the early years, by the late 1990’s, the rapid geographic expansion required Sunstate to put those Core Values in writing to spread the word about what has made Sunstate such a successful company. They are posted in every branch and are a constant focus of teaching and coaching, no matter what level or position an employee is in.
Our people come first. Focus on their needs and they will take care of quality, service, and customer needs.
Never commit to anything without follow through (it starts at the top).
Don't accept something because that is the way it has always been done. Challenge the company, as well as yourself, to change and improve. Suggest a better way.
Make decisions and grow from mistakes.
Find solutions, not fault. Long-term relationships with employees, customers and suppliers are essential to our success. Communication is the key.
If you are not enjoying yourself and having fun - determine the reason. Make every attempt to change what you can. Give us the opportunity to change what we can. If this fails, make a change.
We place the utmost value on your well-being. No job is so important that we should not take the time to perform the work safely.
CEO and President
Thank you for visiting Sunstateequip.com. Our entire team looks forward to helping you with your equipment rental needs. We’ve designed our site to be attractive, with an intuitive look and feel that will allow anyone to quickly find the information or resources they are looking for.
Sunstate's Chairman and founder, Mike Watts, had a simple vision when he created Sunstate in Phoenix, Arizona back in 1977. The idea was to provide high quality construction tools and equipment for the professional contractor, while upholding the highest standards of professionalism and integrity. The commitment he made was to treat all employees with dignity and respect, while providing them a safe and professional work atmosphere they could be proud of. Mike’s belief was, and still is, that "if you treat your employees with respect, then the employees will bend over backwards to take care of our customers."
That simple principle is the core of our operating philosophy as we continue to commit to being the "Rental People You Can Depend On™." The emphasis is on people for an important reason. Tools are tools, but the people behind the tools make the difference. From the friendly voice you hear on the phone, to our talented mechanics that make sure each piece is in tip-top shape before it leaves the yard, our entire team is committed to demonstrating the difference in service between our competition and us. If you haven't had the pleasure of renting from Sunstate, put us to the test and find out for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
Sunstate is a strong supporter of the communities in which we operate and we believe in giving back to the community. After all, we live here, too!
"We built this business on relationships with our employees, our customers and our communities. It is extremely important to build relationships where you can depend on each other."
~ Mike Watts, Founder
As a team-oriented company, we value the health and well-being of our employees and customers. From this positivity, Sunstate’s growth will derive itself. It is this deeply-held belief that advances our safety, education, resource allocation, personal development programs and more.
