AFI group has opened a new depot in Bahrain to continue its expansion in the Middle East. The new depot has got off to a flying start supplying two Snorkel TB126J, a JLG 860SJ, a Snorkel TB85J and a Skyjack SJ86T for use at the recent Bahrain Grand Prix.
AFI started its operations, Access Rental Gulf, in the Middle East in 2008 opening a depot in Dubai, and has since grown with depots in Abu Dhabi, Dammam, Jeddah, Doha and now Bahrain.
AFI has acquired Kimberly Rentals Group (‘Kimberly’). This deal further strengthens AFI’s position within the powered access equipment rental sector bringing its annual turnover to nearly £100m. The acquisition will bring the number of machines in the Group’s rental fleet to over 7,000.
