PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- ROCKSTAR LIMO, a subsidiary of O2 Global Chauffeured Services Inc., said March 22 it has purchased the assets of Kenny’s Coach and Trolleys by Tes.

The acquisition included the fleet of four white late model wedding trolleys that were owned by the companies. John Olinger, CEO of ROCKSTAR, said, "This acquisition is a great strategic move for our company to expand our wedding services business to the South Shore of Boston, as well as Cape Cod. Kenny’s and Trolleys by Tes have very long standing and solid reputations in these markets, which fit our business vision perfectly."

ROCKSTAR will continue to run the trolley business out of the existing location in Plymouth, MA for the foreseeable future. Olinger plans to expand the fleet offering staged in Plymouth, and market the company’s full range of vehicles to the customer of Kenny’s and Trolleys by Tes.

ROCKSTAR LIMO has been in business since 2004 serving the New England market. The company specializes in wedding transportation, estimating that in 2017 it will service over 2,500 wedding reservations.

Kenny’s Coach was founded in 1998 in Weymouth, MA while Trolleys by Tes was founded in 2001 in Kingston, MA. Both companies have been serving the South Shore and Cape Cod markets ever since.
