Enterprise UK acquires SHB Hire
Enterprise Rent-A-Car UK has completed the acquisition of SHB Hire, which operates a fleet of more than 18,500 commercial vehicles. The agreement will create one of the UK's largest commercial-vehicle rental businesses, with a combined fleet of more than 45,000 commercial vehicles.
By joining forces, both companies can offer their commercial-vehicle-renting customers greater choice, flexible funding options and the latest technology platforms. The combined business will operate as part of Enterprise Flex-E-Rent, the company's commercial-vehicle division.
“Our goal is to become the UK’s principal mobility provider for businesses and private motorists, for any type of vehicle, for any period of time. With SHB Hire, we can better support customers requiring commercial vehicles,” said Khaled Shahbo (pictured), Managing Director of Enterprise Holdings UK and Ireland.
The acquisition takes the combined Enterprise Rent-A-Car UK fleet to more than 120,000 vehicles. This includes cars, SUVs, 4x4s, EVs, hybrids, prestige cars, LCVs, and HGVs.
