Finland-based rental company Jalo & Jalo and Denmark located BMS have established truck mounted aerial platform joint venture company JaloBMS.

The new partnership, specializing in large truck mounted platforms, will have around 100 units in the combined fleet, with working heights ranging from 30m to 104m, making it one of Europe’s largest providers of this type of equipment.

The aim of the joint venture is to serve sectors including high voltage power line networks, wind energy and telecoms throughout Northern Europe. 

Initially, JaloBMS will focus on the Scandinavia and Finland markets, where the two separate business are already strong, but will take on projects outside these markets from the offset.

BMS Group, headquartered in Aalborg, has more than 30 locations in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, while Jalo & Jalo has more than 10 locations in Finland and Sweden.

Together the companies believe they can offer increased reliability in delivery and service through the large fleet and shared expertise.

Jens Enggaard, Group CEO of BMS, which is also the world’s fifth largest crane owning company, according to IC&ST’s IC100 ranking of the world’s largest crane rental companies, said “With our large fleet of truck mounted platforms, many locations and Jalo & Jalo’s more than 50 years of experience in this special industry, we achieve the best conditions to provide our customers with optimal service and, above all, delivery reliability.”

“We aim to become the industry’s preferred partner,” explained Enggaard.
