Mollo acquires aerial lift specialist

Mollo Nolleggio has acquired Italy-based company Albatros Piattaforme. No financial details of the deal have been disclosed. 

Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Brescia, Albatros specialises in the rental of lifting platforms, including self-propelled platforms, spider lifts and truck-mounted platforms.

The company also offers excavators and forklifts as part of its fleet and can provide both machine rental and a qualified operator.

According to Mollo, Albatros will be able to offer its customers a widespread network of 60 rental centres operating in Italy thanks to the acquisition.

Mauro Mollo, president of the Mollo Group, said, “We enthusiastically welcome Albatros and its employees to our Group. We are confident that together we can develop important synergies and increase mutual expertise, with the aim of continuously improving the service to our customers and achieving ever more ambitious goals.”

The deal for Albatros comes after a period of significant growth for Mollo. Last year the company hit a depot landmark with the acquisition of Manetta Noleggi, bringing the number of Mollo depots across Italy to 50.

Since then the company has completed several deals to take that number closer to 60.
