The UK’s largest equipment rental company A-Plant has announced the acquisition of Kier Construction’s hoist business as well as the award of a new 5-year trading agreement.
A-Plant has purchased the assets and ongoing business of the Kier hoist business, which will be incorporated into GB Access, A-Plant’s specialist personnel and goods hoist hire and sale division. The acquired business provides hoist services to Kier as well as a number of third-party customers, and it is very much business as usual for both parties.
Claudio Veritiero, Group Strategy & Corporate Development Director at Kier said, “The new agreement builds on our existing framework with it now extended to cover telehandlers, lighting, generators, trackway, climate control equipment, hoists, specialist utilities equipment and powered access.”
Sat Dhaiwal, CEO at A-Plant commented, “We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Kier Group, through the acquisition of their hoist business and by extending the long standing trading relationship we have enjoyed over many years. We look forward to playing a leading role in providing support to all Kier operating divisions as they deliver their strategic growth plans over the next five years.”
