Loxam also rents to individuals who require professional equipment, either directly or via its partners’ networks.

In the midst of the financial crisis which hit the entire European construction sector, Loxam focussed its efforts on incorporating its recent acquisitions while pursuing its development strategy with the reinforcement of its generalist activities (acquisition of Locarest in France, Locamachine in Belgium and Stammis in the Netherlands). In 2010, the Group began to expand outside of Europe, firstly in Morocco and then in Brazil. In 2015, Loxam bought Hertz Equipment Rental France and Spain, and also became the first equipment rental company in the world to obtain level 3 in standard 26000 for its CSR policy.

In 2017, LOXAM celebrates its 50th anniversary. The Group consolidates its international footprint with acquisitions of the Hune group (Spain, Portugal, Saudi Arabia and Colombia) and the British company Lavendon (UK, Belgium, France and the Middle East). For the first time, it sets up in Italy with the acquisition of Nacanco, and strengthens its generalist European network in Denmark and Ireland with the acquisitions of Cramo and Swan. In 2018, the Italian firm Nove joins the group, reinforcing LOXAM’s powered access range in the country.

In July 2019, the Group reaches a major milestone in its history with the acquisition of Ramirent, Europe’s second largest equipment hire company. It thus strengthens its position as the undisputed pan-European leader. Loxam becomes the 4th largest market player in the world behind the American company United Rentals and the British company Ashtead, with operations in 30 countries around the world and pro forma sales of €2.3 billion.

The unprecedented public health crisis triggered by Covid-19 will remain the major event of 2020. Loxam employees in all countries pulled together to guarantee service continuity their customers while responding to public health emergencies, staying safe at all times. By continuing to pursue its efforts in digitalisation, CSR and innovation, Loxam builds itself a strong position for the post-pandemic world.
