Rent City acquisition strengthens Stavdal

By Steve Ducker09 April 2015

Swedish rental company Stavdal says its acquisition of Rent City in Karlstad has strengthened its position as one of the leading players in the country’s rental market.

Rent City was founded 10 years ago by Gunner Asp, whose son Richard is now its CEO.

Stavdal said the relationship with the pair, together with the location of the company, played a big part in the acquisition.

“With Rent City we finally have a full service supplier in Karlstad,” said president Mikael Olsson.

“Our long relationship with Gunnar and Richard made it very easy to take this step. We know how good they are and how well they fit into our organisation.”

As well as renting construction machinery, equipment, sheds, containers and scaffolding, Rent City services construction cranes and other equipment.

It will now become a wholly owned subsidiary of Stavdal.
