Taylor Rental of Vestal and Ithaca is the Greater Binghamton Chamber Business of the Week.

The franchise was started by Mike Flesher in Vestal Center 30 years ago and moved to its current location on North Jensen Road in 1990.

The business rents tools and equipment to both contractors and do-it-yourself homeowners, as well as renting tents and other party needs in its events division.

Flesher said his operation prides itself on its high level of customer service and the maintenance of its rental inventory.

"The technology changes on a monthly and yearly basis. So, we're constantly updating and adding newer equipment and new types of equipment," said Flesher.

Taylor Rental of Vestal is also a Husqvarna equipment retailer and sells some of its used rental items.

Flesher says he relies on the Chamber for small business advocacy in Albany and Washington D.C.
