Full-service machine and equipment rental company

Renta (“the Company”) is a full service equipment rental company offering construction machines & equipment, modular on-site facilities, scaffolding and weather protection, as well as related on-site services. The Company was founded in 2016 when three smaller local Finnish rental players merged to form the basis of Renta’s organisation in Finland, which has since grown into the Nordics and Poland through greenfield expansion and M&A.

Today, the Company operates around 135 depots serving a large pool of customers across a wide range of industries including construction, renovation, infra, industry and services.

IK Partners acquired Renta from Intera Partners alongside management and reinvesting employees.
