Helsinki, Finland-based rental giant Cramo last week signed an outsourcing deal to take over the existing machine fleet of MSE A/S. The deal includes a cooperation agreement making Cramo the primary equipment rental supplier of MSE A/S for a minimum of five years.
The deal does not include personnel or real estate.
Cramo, which operates in 11 Nordic, Central and Eastern European countries, has 21 branches in Demark. MSE is a construction company based in Falster, Denmark.
“The outsourcing deal is important because it gives us a strong foothold in the region with a leading position in Lolland/Falster,” says Ole Wamsler, managing director of Cramo in Denmark. “It gives us an immediate access to larger volumes with a strong customer we know well. Furthermore, it gives us a well-maintained rental fleet, consisting primarily of construction machinery and site huts.”
“By outsourcing the equipment to Cramo, we expect to lower our cost for machinery and equipment and, at the same time, gain access to Cramo’s wider product range,” said Jan Sorensen, managing director of MSE A/S. “Through Cramo’s depot network, we will also get better availability and efficiency in the supply of equipment to support the continued growth of our core construction business.”
