Japanese and Australian companies make the top 50, but you have to look to Taiwan and, to a lesser extent, South Korea and Singapore to find other access rental companies of significant size.

Taiwan seems to have the biggest companies, with Giant having a reported fleet of between 1000-1100 machines and Ming Yao with as many as 800. Shine Construction and Midway are also significant companies.

The next largest fleets are in Singapore, where Desmond Ong's Galmon has a fleet of around 750 machines. South Korea, meanwhile, boasts several companies with +200 machines, including Hankook Total Rental and A1 Rental. Hong Kong's biggest players are Ajax Pong (less than 200 units) and Chi Shing Machinery (over 200). China as yet still has tiny access renters, with one of the biggest, Shi Shing Machinery, having a reported fleet of under 25 machines.
