Laho Equipement

Laho Equipement specialises in the short-term rental of a wide range of construction equipment in France.

The company is the second largest player in the professional building equipment rental market. At the end of 2006, it operated from 116 outlets in France.

Laho Equipement was a subsidiary of French retail group PPR when it was bought out by Bridgepoint in 1995. It underwent a secondary MBO with Industri Kapital in 2000.

THE EXIT

Equistone and the management team sold Laho Equipement to the European market leader, Loxam, achieving a consolidation of the French tool hire market.
