Kiloutou buys Wiesecker in Germany
By Leila Steed04 March 2020
French rental group Kiloutou has continued to expand its footprint in Germany with the acquisition of Wiesecker Werkzeugvermietung.
Located 70km north of Frankfurt, Wiesecker provides both access and general equipment rentals from its 24,000m2 depot, which also operates an IPAF training centre.
The company’s 85 employees maintain a fleet of more than 2,500 units, including 650 aerial work platforms reaching up to 70m; 100 excavators; and a range of on-site equipment, telehandlers, forklift trucks and tools.
Said to have good potential to grow, the acquisition of Wiesecker will enable Kiloutou to serve Frankfurt, while also developing its range of non-access equipment.
This deal further strengthens Kiloutou’s presence in the German market, having acquired Werner Middeke Arbeitsbühnenvermietung, serving North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) and Thuringia, and M+S Arbeitsbühnen, based in the North Rhine-Westphalia, last year.
The company has been growing its presence in Germany as part of a larger international expansion plan, which has seen Kiloutou acquire numerous businesses across Europe.
