Riwal, international aerial work platform and telehandler rental specialist, was named “Large Rental Company of the Year” award, jointly presented by the European Rental Association and International Rental News.

“2015 was an important year for Riwal,” said the judges in a statement. “It rolled out its new lean operation system, The Riwal Way, across its entire organization, revenues rose by 13 percent on a fleet that was just 4 percent larger, and EBITDA profits rose by 22 percent. The company was active across multiple fronts: creating an online account management portal for its customers; developing electric versions of booms for special applications; and opening new locations in Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, India and Kazakhstan. In a very tightly contested category, and with other shortlisted companies also performing extremely well, Riwal is a very worthy winner of this year’s Large Rental Company of the Year award.”

“I really appreciate the recognition for the hard work that the team at Riwal has put forward to continuously improve our company and our service for our customers,” said Norty Turner, Riwal CEO.

Headquartered in Dordrecht, Netherlands, Riwal has operations in 17 countries.
