The group announced a pre-tax profit of £21.4 million, up from £7.7 million in 2006, on revenues of £186 million, up 49 per cent.
The Leicester-based group today also revealed plans to acquire Berkshire business The Platform Company in a £46.1 million cash and shares deal, following four acquisitions last year which cost it £77.2 million.
Lavendon chairman John Gordon said the group would now focus on integrating its new businesses.
The firm’s takeover of the DK Rental group of companies last December for £64.3 million – its largest acquisition yet – meant it entered Belgium as a market leader and had bolstered its position in Spain and France.
The company more than doubled revenues in Germany to £48.5 million, after buying the Gardemann group late in 2006.
Mr Gordon said the firm was mindful of current market conditions but added: “We have experienced no noticeable impact on our end user markets and are confident of reporting further progress in the year ahead.”
