Neil Fenwick (Illumin8) and Asif Latief (Boels Rental)
Dutch firm Boels Rental has acquired leading UK lighting tower rental specialist Illumin8 Lights Ltd.
According to Boels’ managing director Asif Latief, the purchase is a key part of the company’s growth strategy and supports the expansion of its lighting division in the UK. “This acquisition allows us to expand our already significant lighting tower fleet so we can provide our existing customers with more choice. It also gives us the opportunity to develop our growing presence in newer markets with complementary equipment from our rental fleet, for example fencing, barriers, signage and larger generators.”
The sale of Illumin8 was necessary said managing director, Neil Fenwick, if the company wanted grow to the next level. “In order to achieve our ambitious growth plans, we felt that aligning with an international group like Boels Rental would provide us with the platform to grow. I am proud of the entire team at Illumin8 and I’m confident we have a bright future as part of the Boels family.”
