Loxam, Europe’s leader on the equipment rental market for the building, manufacturing, retail and event logistics sectors, has just signed a new contract with the FRAIKIN Group allowing the latter to support Loxam Workx, its subsidiary in the Netherlands. The contract brings the number of countries FRAIKIN covers to five, strengthening a relationship of trust that began in France over 30 years ago.
A rental trailblazer for 50 years, the Loxam Group supports professionals with over 350,000 machines, Europe’s biggest fleet. Loxam meets its 250,000 customers’ most specific needs, from small equipment (sanders, portable electrical equipment, scaffolding, heating, dehumidifiers, heat cameras, etc.) to professional equipment (shovels, compressors, compacting equipment, gondolas, dump trucks, generators, modules, etc.). With over 760 agencies in 22 countries and 7,900 employees, it is the world’s 5th-leading rental company.
A clear ability to coordinate implementation in Europe while complying with each country’s legislation
FRAIKIN, Loxam’s partner in France since 1988, has kept up with its European growth since the 2000s. After Switzerland, Germany and Belgium, the Netherlands becomes the 5th country to put its trust in FRAIKIN, which now orders and manages 250 vehicles in Europe.
“To implement Europe’s safety standardisation policy, Loxam needed a partner capable of applying the same technical specifications and safety regulations in every country. Today, FRAIKIN’s international expertise in this area is crucial for successful implementation across Europe while taking the wide array of vehicle management and safety regulations into consideration,” says key international accounts manager Eric Jourdren.
A partnership based on continuous improvement and innovation
As part of its continuous improvement policy, Loxam works with FRAIKIN on a regular basis to make vehicles safer and more comfortable.
Both European players are focusing on the concept of a new “pilot” vehicle that could become a benchmark on the carrier/low-loader market.
