A-Plant Acquires the Assets of Rapid Climate Control

A-Plant has completed the purchase of the brand and assets of Rapid Climate Control (Rapid), a leading specialist in the hire and sale of portable cooling, drying and heating equipment. 

Further to the recent acquisition of Fral UK, the addition of Rapid now puts A-Plant at the forefront of the specialist climate control rental market in the UK. Mark Pudney, Regional Managing Director at A-Plant said: “Rapid is a well-established company and a leader in its field. With its eight locations across the UK, highly experienced team and specialist products the acquisition will allow us to better serve our customers.”

Mark continued: “A-Plant already has a core climate control customer base working in traditional construction trades, but the addition of Fral UK and Rapid helps us to serve customers in events, facilities management, retail, media and data centres, where expert knowledge and experience are vital, as well as an expanded product range including dehumidifiers for emergency response situations, such as the recent floods.”

Established for over 35 years, Rapid Climate Control is one of the UK's leading temporary climate control specialists and will now operate as a standalone division within A-Plant.
