More UK acquisitions for Boels

4. September 2018 | Comments (1)

Dutch international rental company Boels Rental has acquired UK rental company Artisan Hire Centre and sister company SAS (Survey & Safety Equipment Hire and Sales).

Artisan is based in Swindon and operates from nine locations - including the SAS location in Bristol - with a wide variety of equipment including a small range of powered and non powered access, including low level platforms, trailer lifts and mobile towers. The company was established in 1972 and covers the south west of England, and the M4 corridor. The latest additions follow the acquisition of Supply UK Hire Shops last year and Already Hire earlier this year. The new additions bring the total number of Boels locations in the UK to 38.

Chief executive Pierre Boels said: “This is an important milestone in our ongoing expansion as an international rental company. Artisan and SAS are both well established and very successful in the south west of England. Their acquisition can only benefit the growth strategy that Boels has for Great Britain. Although our ultimate aim is to achieve national coverage, we will focus primarily on local and regional businesses for the time being. We want to make sure that more and more customers are able to benefit from our high quality service provision. In the years ahead, we will focus very much on expanding our fleet and these acquisitions are an important step forward in this respect.”

Artisan Hire Centres’ Chris Comer added: “We are very happy to be part of the Boels family. We clicked straight away and discovered that we have the same plans for the future too. Boels is a major player in the rental market, because of which we will have the opportunity to accelerate our growth under its wing. This is possible thanks in part to the huge amount of knowledge and experience that Boels is able to share with us.”
