AI Rentals is a division of the A.I. Group of companies owned by Keith “Parker” Tibbetts Jr. and is managed by General Manager Steve Bain and Assistant General Manager Keith P. Tibbetts III. AI Rentals was started in 2005 when the three decided to start a small tool and equipment rental company as we saw a need for it within Cayman’s ever growing construction industry.
We started out by purchasing some scaffolding and some Wacker Neuson construction equipment through our connection with Ace Hardware (at Parker’s). Business started in late September 2005 when people saw us unloading our 40’ container of Wacker products. They were literally coming up to us asking us if they could rent that item… Now!
Business grew by leaps and bounds and we expanded into the heavy equipment rental business by June of 2006 having the largest inventory of boom lifts, telehandlers, and forklifts in the rental industry. However, in December of 2005 a small seed was planted when Parker allowed Keith to purchase a small amount of DJ equipment to rent as we saw a need for it to go along with the Generators, Temporary Fencing, and Barricades that we were renting from our Tool & Equipment division to the Party & Event industry on the Island. This too quickly blossomed into staging, concert grade sound systems, concert lighting, tables, chairs, tents, portable air conditioning, décor, and pipe and drape. Before we realized it we had customers coming to us for complete turn key event management projects. Which leads us to where we are today, a fully diversified rental company providing solutions for the Cayman Islands.
