Ramirent has signed a cooperation agreement with Toyota Material Handling Finland Oy for the short-term rental of forklifts to Ramirent’s customers in Finland. The agreement covers mainly the renting of counterbalanced forklifts but includes warehouse forklifts. Toyota will provide training in forklift rental to Ramirent personnel and will be responsible for scheduled maintenance.
“Ramirent has rented out forklifts before, but more occasionally and without active marketing,” said Ramirent’s group fleet director Mikael Kämpe. “Now with this new agreement in place, Ramirent Finland Oy will include forklifts officially in their rental offering and start actively to market the forklift rental business to its various customer sectors. If this cooperation proves to be successful in Finalnd, we will expand the cooperation to all Nordic countries in the autumn of 2012 and to other Ramirent countries in 2013.”
Ramirent operates in 13 northern, central and eastern European countries.
