GTAccess Acquires Extreme Hire


05 August 2019

GTAccess has acquired powered access rental company Extreme Hire in a deal that will see us strengthening our presence in the South East.

Extreme Hire is run by powered access veteran Stuart Bond and is based in the South East, with its head office in Hailsham, East Sussex. Extreme Hire runs a fleet of approximately 200 Powered Access Platforms and Telehandlers and employs 25 people across the organisation. 

Jonathan Till, Managing Director at GTAccess commented “This acquisition will strengthen our powered access offering and will help us to continue our ambitious growth strategy. 

John Byrne, Hailsham Branch Manager of Extreme Hire  said “This is a great deal for Extreme Hire customers as it will give them access to GTAccess’s depots and training centres and a combined modern and versatile powered access hire fleet of over 2,000 machines. I’m really looking forward to continuing to provide a first class service to all our customers.”

As well as the additional depot locations the deal also brings new capability to GTAccess with the addition of truck mounted booms with working heights up to 48 metres and a range of Telehandlers, something that GTAccess currently doesn’t run. Tom Long, General Manager at GTAccess Commented “We already deliver powered access platforms down to the south coast and in to London but the addition of Extreme Hire will expand our capability even further and make it easier for us to continue meeting our customers high expectations.”

The synergies of the two companies make this acquisition a perfect fit. We both run similar types of machines, we're both members of the Access Alliance and as such follow similar working practices – together the future looks bright.
