Equipment rental group Ramirent has opened a rental outlet in Sochi, host of the 2014 Winter Olympics. In preparation for the Winter Olympics, Sochi has turned into a huge construction site. For Ramirent, the outlet in Sochi opens new opportunities in the growing market in southern Russia.

Until now, the Russian operations of Ramirent have focused on the St Petersburg and Moscow regions. Construction related to the Winter Olympics has made Sochi a third focus area in Russia for Ramirent. Demand for our machinery and equipment in Sochi is high, and our local partner has had excellent success in the area, said Grigory Grif, country manager, Russia, at Ramirent. Ramirent has been operating in Sochi since 2009 through its local partner, LLC Rostechnostroy. A leading equipment rental group in Russia, Ramirent has been operating in the country since 1988.
