One of Scott City's newest businesses is Patriot Rentals located at 2620 E. Outer Road, across I-55 from the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport. Tom Kelsey, broker with Lorimont Commercial Real Estate confirmed the St. Louis based company had purchased the 11,612 square-foot industrial office building with 4 acres of property next to Pavestone and has recently opened an equipment rental company there.


The property was formerly built and occupied by Electrical Contractors, Inc. Kelsey said ECI had relocated and moved into a building at 2180 Rust Avenue, that sale also handled by Lorimont.

Patriot handles all types of industrial rental equipment with a full line of lifts including scissor, boom, material and fork lifts. Their rental inventory also includes earth moving equipment, portable power, utility vehicle and trailers. The company is open with a full staff of rental professionals to assist their Southeast Missouri customers.
