HireQuip acquires Scissor Platforms Ltd


Tasman Capital Partners investee, Pacific Equipment Solutions, has announced the acquisition of Scissor Platforms Ltd’s business and assets as part of its growth and product extension plan in New Zealand to further service and support infrastructure and construction sectors.

HireQuip chairman Garry Woods says the company is committed to providing customers safe, cost-effective equipment hire solutions with the right equipment to support the infrastructure and construction markets.

“With the acceleration of major infrastructure projects as a part of the government stimulus package and the recent earthquake in Christchurch, demand will increase considerably from these sectors and will offer more growth in New Zealand this year and in the future,” Mr Woods says.
“It’s an opportunity which we want to ensure Hirequip are positioned to take advantage of.”

Scissor Platforms Ltd has been trading for in excess of 25 years. Throughout this time it has grown to be a respected specialist access equipment provider, with operations in Auckland and Christchurch. 

Owned by Tasman Capital Partners, HireQuip is a leading hire company which supplies a wide range of equipment across various market sectors.
