EVE ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION BY ASHTEAD

Eve, the UK’s leading supplier of temporary access systems and related services, is delighted to announce that, as of 10th May 2013, Ashtead Plant Hire Co Ltd (A-Plant) acquired the entire share capital of the Eve group of companies including Accession Group Limited, Eve Trakway Limited and ATM Traffic Solutions Limited.

Rick Barnett, Managing Director for Eve commented, “A-Plant is a clear market leader and we are extremely pleased about Eve becoming part of the Ashtead Group. We believe that they share our values in providing the highest possible standards in equipment and customer service, and this acquisition allows Eve to offer an expanded product range which is unrivalled in the industry.”

He continued, “We are very proud of Eve’s existing reputation in the industrial and outdoor event markets and are pleased we will continue to trade under the same brand and operate as a separate division of A-Plant.  I will continue to manage Eve on a day-to-day basis as we integrate further into the A-Plant structure.”

Sat Dhaiwal, Chief Executive Officer for A-Plant said, “We are very excited about the acquisition of Eve; we believe that the product range and markets served will complement the existing A-Plant business and together we believe there will be a number of market opportunities”.

He continued, “A-Plant already hires equipment into the UK events market; we supplied a great deal of equipment during the London Olympics and Paralympics, which was used to direct pedestrians and traffic around the venues, but for certain types of equipment we had to supply on a re-hire basis. Having Eve under the A-Plant umbrella gives us the opportunity as a group to supply more of a complete package to the events industry, as well as opening up Eve’s customer base to a wider range of equipment”.
