In 2016, the German company Starlift, lifting equipment rental specialist in the North of Germany, joined the Kiloutou Group. This purchase allows KILOUTOU to continue its international expansion, by entering a major market in Europe, for its size and dynamism.
Starlift is a key regional player in the lifting equipment rental industry in the North of Germany, with a network of three agencies located in Hamburg, Berlin and Rostock, and a staff of 60 employees. Specialist recognized for its expertise and its large range of products, the company has a fleet of 800 machines capable of lifting up to 59 m high (mobile elevating work platforms and aerial work platforms, telehandlers, truck-mounted platforms…) and adapted to the needs of a large customer base made up of industry and construction professionals.
Thanks to the Kiloutou teams’ experience and expertise in Germany, backed by the Group’s resources, experience and tools, we will continue our business development, and offer our customers a level of quality of service which is always higher.
Our ultimate goal is to continue to grow in Germany, by expanding our presence on other activities and other Länder.
