Coates Hire has acquired the Force General Rentals business assets in both Townsville and Darwin to form a cohesive hire solutions company. This acquisition provides a broader range of tools and equipment to the Coates Hire customers in the Townsville and Darwin markets, and will ensure that their customers’ equipment hire needs are met.
Force will continue to retain existing Access operations and trade as Force Access.
Coates Hire will occupy the site in Townsville and the Force General Rental Equipment in Northern Territory will be available through the existing Coates Hire Darwin branch in Mataram St, Winnellie.
Adrian Manning, Coates Hire Executive General Manager, North comments that the acquisition will help Coates Hire better equip their customers in Townsville and Darwin. This acquisition of equipment will ensure Coates Hire further strengthens their local offering with particular focus in the trade markets for equipment such as demolition saws, small earthmoving machines and compressors.
