Expansion has continued at UK-based rental company A-Plant with the purchase of portable cooling, drying and heating equipment hire and sale company Rapid Climate Control.

The company said the deal furthered its recent acquisition of Fral UK, with the addition of Rapid putting it at the forefront of the specialist climate control rental market in the UK.

A-Plant regional managing director Mark Pudney said, “Rapid is a well-established company and a leader in its field. With its eight locations across the UK, highly experienced team and specialist products the acquisition will allow us to better serve our customers.

“A-Plant already has a core climate control customer base working in traditional construction trades, but the addition of Fral UK and Rapid helps us to serve customers in events, facilities management, retail, media and data centres, where expert knowledge and experience are vital, as well as an expanded product range including dehumidifiers for emergency response situations, such as the recent floods.”

A-Plant added that Rapid Climate Control would operate as a standalone division within A-Plant.
