Equipment hire firm Brandon Hire has bought Phoenix Surveying Equipment, a UK supplier of surveying and construction equipment.
Bristol-based Brandon Hire was sold by Wolseley in 2010, and says it is continuing to look for growth opportunities.
Phoenix employs 50 staff from five depots. Brandon Hire managing director Tim Smith said of the acquisition: “Phoenix is a great company with a strong reputation.
“It will continue as a separate business although clearly the fact that we are both working within the same sectors is an advantage for our customers.”
