.Spanish crane and aerial lift rental company Grúas Aguilar has acquired Catalonian rental company Grúas Serrat. The deal was apparently concluded at the end of April, but no details of the transaction have been released.
Based in the Barberà del Vallès suburb of Barcelona, Grúas Serrat was established in 1967 and includes three other locations in the Barcelona area, that currently operate as Grúas Palau with locations in Tona to the north of the city, Vilafranca del Penedes to the west and Igualada to the North West. The fleet includes All Terrains to 500 tonnes and a few mobile self-erecting tower cranes. The plan is to continue to run the acquired business as a standalone business within what is becoming the Aguilar group.
Grúas Aguilar was established by the late Luis Aguilar in 1968 and is based in Madrid, its fleet includes All Terrain cranes up to 1,200 tonnes, along with a number of large crawler cranes and a wide range of aerial work platforms, including booms, scissor lifts and truck mounts up to 35 metres. The company currently operates from four locations – Madrid, Palma in Majorca, Burgos in northern Spain and Cuenca to the south of Madrid. The company also runs a wind turbine installation and heavy haulage division.
