Kiloutou expands in Germany

Kiloutou has expanded its footprint in Germany with the opening of a new branch in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region.

Situated in the city of Oberhausen, the branch specialises in the rental of a variety of equipment, including scissor lifts, telescopic work platforms and telescopic forklifts.

The company said the 10,000sqm branch, which is the 18th it has opened in Germany, offers “great potential” and comes with space for rental, servicing and a workshop.

Nils Altrogge, managing director, Kiloutou Germany, said the opening is a signal of its commitment to the German market.

He said, “At the same time, the new branch strengthens our presence in the region, as in addition to the proximity to the existing Kiloutou locations in Holzwickede in the eastern Ruhr area and Cologne on the left bank of the Rhine, it now also offers excellent connections to major cities such as Duisburg, Mülheim, Essen and Düsseldorf.”

Altrogge added that it marks “another milestone in the implementation of our growth strategy in Germany” with which Kiloutou intends to “consistently drive forward in the coming years.”

The France-headquartered company first entered the market in 2016 with the acquisition of aerial work platform rental specialist Starlift.

In August 2023 it completed its latest acquisition in Germany, adding powered access equipment provider UKA+HAUKE Arbeitsbühnen to its portfolio.
