CityRent takes big step forward

02 April 2008

Polish access rental company CityRent is to add 120-150 new aerial platforms to its fleet in 2008, increasing its holding to almost 400 machines. The company, founded in Warsaw in 2003, also plans to open a new depot in Gdansk this year to add to its existing locations in Poznan, Poland, and Prague, the Czech Republic.

President of the board and director general, Pawel Tkacz, and branch manager, Tomasz Zareba, tell AI that the company's revenues have grown 30% since 2005 and that continued good levels of demand mean that it will invest in new Genie and Skyjack machines this year. Its existing fleet comprises mainly Haulotte equipment.

“Our main customers are the construction and erection companies who generate about 80% of the turnover,” says the company, “the other 20 % are maintenance companies and private customers. For some time we have been seeing growth in this second group of customers.”

CityRent's plan is to continue to focus on aerial platforms. It is also a certified IPAF training centre in Poland.
