Swecon acquires rental company Kewab Rental

Press release, 2022

Swecon Anläggningsmaskiner – part of the Lantmännen group – is broadening its operations through the acquisition of the rental company Kewab Rental. With one of Sweden's largest and widest range of large construction machines for rental and hire purchases, the acquisition creates synergies and the opportunity to meet customers' demand for rental machines.

In the construction industry, demands and requests from customers to rent machines are increasing, a development seen both in Europe and in Sweden. Swecon Anläggningsmaskiner now acquires the rental company Kewab Rental in order to broaden its operations, and the rental business will thus be a strategic part of Swecon's business going forward. In addition to meeting increasing rental demand, the acquisition will increase the supply of used machines, strengthen Swecon's service business and open up for a broader and more competitive offering.

“Through this acquisition, we execute our strategy to meet customer needs while broadening our offering, investing in the rental market and increasing access to used machines. We already have a well-functioning collaboration between the companies and Kewab Rental has many strong customer relationships that we look forward to strengthen further,” says Joakim Arndorw, CEO of Swecon Anläggningsmaskiner.

Kewab Rentals' main focus is long-term rental contracts of Volvo machines.

“Exchanging knowledge with a company like Swecon will be a great asset. Together, we will develop both Kewab Rental and the market as we already see great synergy effects today. It is with great pride that we become a part of both Swecon and the Lantmännen group,” says Michael Herbertsson, CEO of Kewab Rental.

The transaction was signed and closed on May 2.
