We have over 50 years of operational experience and expertise in sector specific and complex projects. When this is combined with our engineering capability it gives us a unique understanding of our customer needs and the ability to deliver whilst managing risk.

It has taken over fifty years to develop the enormous strength and depth of expertise throughout the business.

At the regional levels our sales and commercial teams are local experts, highly trained and understand the financial, regulatory and environmental logistics of operating in their markets.

Similarly, our engineers and technicians are trained to problem solve in the most difficult situations and to keep our equipment operating.

How We Do It

Our people are highly skilled, and many of them have years of experience. They are trained to react quickly, get the job done professionally and safely, and respond well, whatever the situation.

Our scale and global reach, which allows us to serve customers in around 100 countries, means that we are close to, and aware of, market opportunities as they arise. Our scale also provides a capital cost advantage on our equipment and enables us to work closely with suppliers on technology development.

We are able to ensure that fleet is always available and therefore are able to respond quickly, whilst running at good levels of utilisation to generate strong returns on capital.

Importantly, given the risk of operating in some of our markets, our scale means that we have a diversified portfolio and an inherent risk management mechanism.

How We Do It

We are unique among large equipment rental companies in that we design and build the majority of our fleet in our own, purpose-built manufacturing facility in Scotland.

Technology is an important enabler for our business and we have built a competitive advantage by working with our suppliers to provide market leading technology in a modular, flexible format.

When you consider that for diesel customers, on average 80% of the cost of our solution is fuel, then providing products that are market leading in fuel efficiency can provide a significant competitive advantage. We are continually identifying and developing new product lines that provide our customers with alternatives.

For example, our new medium speed HFO engine will allow customers to use a more affordable fuel source than the traditional diesel product, with better availability than gas.

We have built a team of specialist engineers at our in-house manufacturing facility in Dumbarton, Scotland. They intimately understand the requirements of the environment in which the fleet operates and have core skills around speed of deployment, reliability and flexibility which, over the years, have provided us with a strong competitive advantage.

In the last few years we have strengthened and developed our capability to adapt to the market environment, including bringing in new expertise on product development, new technologies, total cost of ownership and procurement.

We operate equipment for its useful life; we do not build our equipment to sell. This gives a powerful incentive to maintain it well, which gives a longer life and better reliability.

We currently purchase most of our temperature control equipment externally to suit the needs of local markets.

How We Do it

Fleet is at the heart of any rental business; it is the core of the service we offer and managing it effectively is necessary to ensure the long-term sustainability of our business.
