Intended for international professional traders (brokers), the KILOUTOU online sales platform allows it to organise calls for tender for its second-hand equipment from French and European agencies. A dozen private sales will be organised each year, each of them representing a volume of almost 400 items of equipment.
Because delivering equipment is known to top the list when it comes to direct carbon emissions, KILOUTOU is reinforcing its eco-friendly actions by renewing its transport fleet with clean vehicles. KILOUTOU thus becomes the first rental company to offer to deliver equipment to sites by rigid lorries running on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Its fleet of light vehicles is also evolving, integrating CNG-powered 12-m3 vans to deliver small items of equipment; hybrid and electric cars are provided for the sales force.
Thanks to strong mobilisation on the part of its members of staff and considerable resources, KILOUTOU is accelerating the opening of its different agency formats in line with a safety protocol that complies with the recommendations of official bodies such as the OPPBTP. The KILOUTOU network is already able to serve all professionals throughout France.
Working closely with professionals since the beginning of the health crisis, KILOUTOU is now committed to supporting them in resuming their activity thanks to three new services offering a concrete response to their new needs.
Kiloutou is supporting the public in all their DIY, construction, renovation or gardening projects thanks to a wide range of tools and services to make rental easier.
To support companies’ resumption of work, the KILOUTOU group has engaged in a recovery plan for its equipment rental network based on a schedule to gradually open its agencies and a protocol of measures designed to guarantee the safety of its members of staff and its clients.
The KILOUTOU group is pleased to announce the acquisition of the rental business of Wiesecker Werkzeugvermietung, specialized in the rental of powered access machines and construction sites equipment in the Federal State of Hessen. This operation enables KILOUTOU Germany to take a strategic position to serve the city area of Frankfurt and develop its rental equipment ranges beyond its core powered access equipment.
The Kiloutou group has just acquired Locamodul, a company specialising in modular construction hire in the Rhône-Alpes region. This transaction allows Kiloutou to accelerate the roll-out of its Module business in France.
