"Even if the transaction proved to be challenging at times, with a complex structure and complicated coordination needs, MCF led all activities in an excellent way, and delivered clear and direct communication in a positive manner.”
CEO of Renta Sweden
Through the acquisition, Renta further strengthens its position in the Swedish rental equipment market through increased coverage of the large and important Stockholm area, securing full availability, service and offering in the region.
YRC Täby and YRC Uppsala have up until the acquisition been operating under a common YRC brand, but with separated ownership. Both companies focus on general equipment rental services with a broad offering, operating one depot in Stockholm and one in Uppsala.
Joacim Johansson, CEO of Renta Sweden, said: “The YRC acquisitions represents an important strategic step in Renta’s continued expansion for our core markets. Once more, the MCF team has provided us with great support throughout the entire process. Even if the transaction proved to be challenging at times, with a complex structure and complicated coordination needs, MCF led all activities in an excellent way, and delivered clear and direct communication in a positive manner.”
