In 2017, the Kiloutou group entered the Italian market through the acquisition of COFILOC and EURONOL. Both companies are specialized in the rental of earthmoving and access in northern Italy. The strategic acquisition of these key players in the rental of equipment in the provinces of Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy and Friuli, allows Kiloutou to establish itself in Italy with a network of 10 agencies located in Treviso, Verona and Modena. These two sister companies have a common fleet of 4,000 machines, including loaders, excavators, nacelles and lifting platforms. The machinery fleet is also supplemented by a large number of cranes.
In July 2018, the acquisition of the machinery rental company ELEVO enabled the Kiloutou Group to strengthen its position in two important markets: Milan and Venice. The acquired company is specialized in the rental of elevating equipment in the region of Bergamo, Brescia and Milan and has a fleet of more than 500 elevating machines (nacelles, articulated elevating platforms).
In September 2019, Kiloutou continued its development with the acquisition of STICAR, a company specialized in the rental of access equipment and industrial forklifts in northern Italy, specifically in Lombardy, Veneto, Piedmont and Emilia Romagna. The acquisition expands Kiloutou Italy’s network of 9 branches, 850 elevating machines and 475 industrial forklifts.
Today Kiloutou Italy has a network of 20 agencies and will expand in the future to increase its market presence by opening new agencies.
