Manager, Stefan Hundrup said: "Jochem Schürck was looking for a successor for reasons of age, and therefore it was obvious for us to take over the machines and employees of Schürck and integrate them into our rental park. So, as of January, in addition to working platforms, cranes or forklifts, we also rent construction machinery and construction equipment. The Schürck fleet is mainly made up of excavators, wheel loaders and vibratory plates.”

Stefan and his brother, Jens Hundrup, have been running the business for five years after taking over from their parents, Bärbel and Peter Hundrup who still support their sons from the side lines.
