Skyline and Arcomet Join Forces
After having worked closely together over the last few years, Skyline Tower Cranes Services (TCS) Ltd from the UK and Arcomet Group from Belgium have decided to join forces. We are proud to announce the creation of our joint company named Skyline Arcomet, as of 11th July 2016.
The new joint venture will be active across the UK as a Rental, Distribution and Service provider. It will combine the 15 years’ reputation of Skyline TCS and the experience and resources from the Arcomet Group.
“I am thrilled to be part of one of the largest tower crane service companies in the world and consolidate our position in the UK market. With this merger, we will have much stronger capabilities to satisfy our customers growing needs” says Darren Whitford, founder of Skyline TCS who will remain as managing director of the new company.
“For the Arcomet Group, this is a come-back to an important market in Europe and the opportunity to partner with a solid local team. It also illustrates our renewed growth strategy in Europe.” says Philippe Cohet, CEO of Arcomet Group.
For our customers, it is important to know that Skyline Arcomet will continue operate from the offices in West Thurrock, Grays, Essex, and this with the current team of employees. Skyline Arcomet will progressively take over all the Arcomet Group activities in the UK. Today, the new company has a rental fleet of about 70 top-slewing tower cranes. Aside from the rental business, Skyline Arcomet will remain a distributor of Terex Tower Cranes for the UK.
The company will be looking out for a new yard and additional sales and service personnel, which is needed to support the increase in rental operations and develop the distribution business while still maintaining a high level of customer satisfaction.
