Nearly 100 new Bobcat materials handling machines have been ordered by two of Sweden’s leading rental companies.
Kristianstad-based Bobcat Sverige AB, the authorised dealer for Bobcat in the country, secured the orders from Ramirent AB and Renta Sverige AB. The order for Ramirent is believed to be the largest ever won by Bobcat in the Swedish market.
Comprising Bobcat mini-excavators from 1t to 8.5t and a range of Bobcat compact loaders, the new machines are being delivered to Ramirent and Renta on a continuous basis. They join substantial fleets of existing Bobcat machines at both companies.
“Deliveries of the new Bobcat machines started in the second quarter and are taking place at rental depots throughout the country,” said Göran Andersson, CEO at Bobcat Sverige.
“The Swedish market is looking relatively bright – even in coronavirus times – with many cautiously looking forward again. The recent uncertainty in the market has been good for rental businesses as companies tend to hire more equipment under these circumstances.”
Johan Bursell, district manager for the Nordics and Baltics region for Doosan Bobcat EMEA, said: “This is a tremendous achievement for Bobcat Sverige and is a testament to its success as our dealer in Sweden and to the quality of the Bobcat compact range.
“The excellent performance of the Bobcat equipment already in the rental fleets at Ramirent and Renta was an important factor in winning these orders.”
