Allu Finland Oy, which has been manufacturing Allu products for more than 30 years, expanded its operations in the rental machinery market in its home market of Finland. This has been done in order to provide Finnish customers with the opportunity to rent a Transformer on a short-term basis, thereby benefitting from the unique attributes of the Allu attachments.
Allu has previous experience in the rental equipment business in Germany, where the company has a directly-owned subsidiary. In Germany, the rental business has been in operation for many years and has proven to be a viable concept among German contractors, where rental, prior to purchase, is often regularly pursued. "We wanted to provide our customers with a flexible and risk-free way to get an Allu product for a short period of time," said Marjut Lindroos, Allu's global marketing manager.
"For new customers, rental operations allow them to familiarise themselves with the equipment before making a purchase decision. This also gives the customer the opportunity to redeem the product at the end of the rental period, thereby enabling the customer to take a risk-free test of the product and its various functions. If necessary, Allu service personnel will provide assistance with technical issues, spare parts and accessories. We are a flexible, reliable and secure partner for our customers.
"Currently, there are several different units for rent in different sizes and with different blade options. We can change the sharpening according to the customer's wishes and the mounts are also fitted according to the basic machine. We can also make demonstrations for rental attachments on the customer's site, transforming their specific material," said Marjut.
