Leasys acquires WinRent

Leasys, the leasing subsidiary of manufacturing group FCA, has acquired WinRent, one of Italy’s biggest short-term vehicle rental companies.

The acquisition is part of Leasys’ strategy to become a fully-rounded provider of mobility solutions, for companies large and small, for public-sector customers, and for professional and private individuals. 

Leasys already offers fleet management, corporate car-sharing, used-car rental and remarketing services (via its online platform Clickar). Now, in addition to its existing long- and medium-term car rental offers, Leasys will also be able to provide short-term car rentals. 

Headquartered near Rome’s Fiumicino airport, WinRent has a fleet of more than 4,000 cars and LCVs and a network of 80 rental locations near Italy’s main airports, train stations and city centres. 
The new CEO of WinRent will be Ubaldo Della Penna, from Leasys' commercial department. Alberto Grippo, CEO of Leasys, will be WinRent's Chairman.
