Mabey Hire chief executive David Adams said: “Becoming part of the Peri Group is an excellent opportunity to better serve the needs of our customers and, with Peri UK, offer them the best service possible. Therefore, we already look forward to working together to expand the business by serving more customers in both the UK and internationally.”

Peri Group chief executive Christian Schwörer said: “This acquisition marks an important milestone in our growth strategy to develop new market shares and areas in the civil engineering and renovation markets, especially in the UK but also internationally.”

There had been rumours circulating around the industry about Mabey Hire's future for some time, with Altrad among potential bidders said to have been interested.

Mabey Bridge Limited, the temporary and modular bridging company is a separate company, part of the Acrow Group, and not part of this acquisition.
