Boels Rental are pleased to announce the acquisition of Already Hire Limited (London) as of Friday 23rd March 2018.
This expansion coincides with a major re-branding program into the Boels livery across the UK, and marks an important step in our exciting growth plans. Extending our footprint and coverage of the south of the country will be important to the business and our customers this year.
Already Hire Ltd represents the second acquisition for the Boels Rental Group in the UK, after Supply UK Hire Shops Ltd was acquired in April 2017. This now takes the depot network to 29 locations.
Much like Supply UK, Already Hire brings the same business ethos, consistent with such an experienced and loyal team. This is a business with a long standing presence across London and we believe the brand and investment support from Boels will have the same positive effect that has clearly been seen across Supply UK.
Director and owner Jim McKeogh will stay on to develop the London region for Boels, while fellow owners Trevor Goodwin and Charles Patience will be retiring. We are delighted to be able to confirm that the existing depot and sales management team will continue to run the business supported by their loyal and experienced staff. Our prime objective will be to retain the culture and strengths of this well-established business and build further on this through increased investment and a further widening of its offering.
UK MD, Chris Haycocks, commented this is a great fit for our existing business, and with 5 depots across London, we now have a good footprint from which to deliver a comprehensive service in the area.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our new colleagues at Already Hire who have worked so hard over the past 6 months to make this exciting alliance possible and we look forward to a mutually successful and rewarding future together.
