Rotom expands rental activities through acquisition of Roldo Rent

Rotom, a supplier of logistic load carriers for transport and storage, continues to grow in Europe. Rotom Europe and Roldo Rent announce that they have reached agreement on the takeover of Roldo Rent. Roldo Rent will continue to operate as an independent organisation within Rotom Europe. .

"The acquisition of Roldo Rent will strengthen our portfolio as a full service provider and rental company in the field of customer specific load carriers," says Arjan Kuiper, CEO Rotom Europe. "The acquisition gives us the opportunity to better serve the moving and medical sector, to offer customers of Roldo Rent a broader package of logistic resources and to serve these relations in several European countries

Roldo Rent, run by Gerard Geijtenbeek and Gerdine Leeuwis, specialises in the rental of durable and professional moving equipment, such as roll containers and plastic moving boxes. Roldo Rent is also a packaging specialist for the medical sector. They do this by offering packaging in a pool to pharmacists and hospitals that is suitable for the products and the specific process for which it is used. The company has depots in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. With Scanalytic, Roldo Rent also has a digital registration system for locating the pool of materials, keeping track of incoming and outgoing transactions and conducting digital inventories.

Gerard Geijtenbeek, Director Roldo Rent, says: "On behalf of Roldo Rent I am very pleased to welcome the Rotom Group as a major shareholder in our company. There is a nice synergy of activities between our companies that strengthens the position and allows us to expand the range and services to the market. Strategically, Roldo Rent is an important part of Rotom's European expansion plans and we look forward to working with the other branches across Europe to establish new operations."

The takeover of Roldo Rent is part of the recently launched buy and build strategy of Rotom Europe. In August, pan-European investment company Waterland joined as a shareholder and strategic partner for the future. Rotom Europe's ambition is to grow into the European market leader in sustainable load carriers and load carrier services, including rental, repair, maintenance and circular solutions (such as packaging recovery).
