Renta Group Oy (“Renta Group”, “the Company” or “Renta”) is pleased to announce the completion of the acquisition of Utleiesenteret on 8 April 2022, which strengthens Renta’s position in Norway. Utleiesenteret is one of the largest machinery and equipment rental companies in Eastern Norway, with more than 80 employees and an annual turnover of approximately NOK 300m.
The acquisition sees Renta take a decisive step towards becoming a truly Nordic player, building upon its established positions in neighbouring regions; following the successful acquisitions of Flexleie and Byggesystemer in 2018 and 2021, respectively.
Renta now has more than 320 employees across 19 depots in Norway; with turnover expected to exceed NOK 900m.
The acquisition is a logical next step for Renta, increasing its geographical footprint and solidifying its position in Norway. Utleiesenteret’s offering is complementary to Renta as a leading player in the region with a strong track record. With customers receiving a broader offering, the Company will be able to realise its ambition of being a truly generalist equipment rental company.
The acquisition secures access to the best technological and digital solutions, while Utleiesenteret will continue to provide the same high level of service, with a strong local foundation.
Kari Aulasmaa, CEO of Renta Group, said: “I am pleased to welcome the employees, clients and suppliers of Utleiesenteret to Renta Group. This acquisition is an excellent strategic fit with our existing businesses and has accelerated our plans to become a generalist equipment rental company in Norway. I look forward to a bright future for our collective team.”
