Supplier Diversity

We believe that companies that actively embrace diversity and consistently demonstrate their commitment to the many communities they serve, establish a sustainable competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Supplier Diversity Program

At United Rentals, we proactively seek diverse suppliers. To remain competitive in an ever-changing economy, we must include the broadest range of people, ideas, products and services possible. United Rentals' Supplier Diversity program does just that. We do everything we can to ensure that diversely-owned businesses are afforded equal opportunity to participate in our procurement processes.

Named Leader in Corporate Supplier Diversity

United Rentals has been selected as one of the Top 100 Leaders in Corporate Supplier Diversity for 2014 by Women’s Enterprise magazine (WE). WE is the publication for WBENC, the certifying body for women-owned business in the US.

Create a Supplier Profile

To qualify for the United Rentals Supplier Diversity program, a company must be at least 51% owned, controlled, and managed by a minority, woman, veteran, service-disabled veteran, or be classified as a Hub Zone, small business, small disadvantaged or 8A Supplier.

We encourage both prospective and current suppliers to complete a Supplier Profile using our Supplier Diversity system. Doing so will allow us to match your company's capabilities with our requirements. Along with registering, we ask that you provide us with a copy of your Supplier Diversity Certification.
