Compact Rent is based in Beneden Leeuwen, west of Nijmegen, and rents a wide range of construction of equipment from 12 locations in the Netherlands. The company will also start to rent and sell some other Fuel Proof products, such as its fuel tanks.

Eurogate has partnered with Hestocon to undertake EU-homologation for the Fuel Proof trailers, with the trailers certified by KIWA/Vlarem and the tanks by TÜV.

Fuel Proof, based in Heysham, Lancashire, UK, manufactures a wide range of bunded fuel tanks, diesel bowsers and contaianerised fuel tanks. It also rents tanks inn the UK.
