Boels Rental (Sittard) recently acquired three companies in the rental sector, allowing the company to further expand its services for its customers. They are the machine rental company Already Hire Limited (UK) and specialist rental companies Delta Rent and Amdyte (The Netherlands). In total 124 people are employed in these three companies. These acquisitions give Boels Rental the opportunity to broaden its portfolio and strengthen the one-stop-shop position of the company.
Stronger market position, broader service
Like Abird, which was acquired on 1st January of this year, Delta Rent is active in industrial rental and more specifically in the petrochemical sector. The acquisition and the new synergy it creates between the activities adds significant clout to the capabilities of Boels Rental. In addition, Boels Rental has purchased British rental company Already Hire, well-known in machine rental with four branches in London. With this move, Boels strengthens its position in the United Kingdom further, after it had already entered this market in 2017 with the acquisition of Supply UK (25 branches). In February 2018, Boels Rental acquired specialist rental company Amdyte, market leader in the rental of temporary fencing.
Pierre Boels, CEO of Boels Rental
“We are delighted with being able to realise these acquisitions. They reinforce our business strategy of offering our customers a single counter for all their needs. In addition to the largest network for general rental, we now offer a rapidly growing number of professional specialisations. With this latest move, we are responding to the needs of our customers, who increasingly opt for outsourcing. They do this because it is more efficient, but also because hiring is more sustainable than ownership. Thanks to the one-stop-shopping principle we are pursuing, we can offer them optimal service, giving us an important competitive edge in the market.”
