The Netherlands-based rental company will stock out its depots across Europe, including in Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Austria and Italy.

The deal strengthens the company’s long-term relationship with JCB, having bought over 1,600 of its machines in recent years.

Boels’ director of fleet operation, Guy Cremer, said, “Our decision to buy JCB was based on the quality and efficiency of the product as well as the excellent aftermarket support we receive from JCB throughout Europe.

“Boels and JCB are both family businesses sharing many common values and I am glad that our long-standing partnership continues.”

Meanwhile, JCB group managing director, global key accounts, Yvette Henshall-Bell, said, “We are delighted to secure this major order from one of Europe’s leading plant and tool hire companies.

“We have worked closely with Boels for many years and it’s testament to the quality of our range of Loadalls and excavators as well as the world-class service back-up that we’ve secured this valuable business.”
