Ramirent AB Sweden acquires MaskinSlussen AB

It was confirmed today that Ramirent AB in Sweden will acquire the equipment rental company MaskinSlussen AB.

“We are delighted about the acquisition, which will make us an even stronger local player in the Swedish market,” comments Ramirent’s CEO Mikael Olsson.

The transaction is part of Ramirent’s strategy to be a strong local player with customer centres throughout Sweden. With its three rental centres in VästraGötaland, MaskinSlussen covers a geographic area where Ramirent previously lacked local representation.  

“In an increasingly competitive market, we have been seeking for some time to become part of a larger context with a strong owner. Ramirent stands for security, a long-term perspective and a focus on people and the local market, which coincides well with our values,” says MaskinSlussen’s CEO Jonas Boström.

MaskinSlussen was founded in 1987 and is a leading equipment rental provider in Västra Götaland. The company had sales of just over SEK 90 million and 44 employees in the 2019/2020 financial year.

MaskinSlussen will initially operate as a subsidiary of Ramirent. “The geographical area, where MaskinSlussen is strong today, has a bright future where we predict vigorous growth. The acquisition will consolidate our position as a leader in the Swedish machine rental industry, and will enable us to deliver efficient, personal service to even more customers,” comments Olsson.  

Ramirent has customer centres already established in over 80 locations as well as ten specialist lift centres around Sweden.
