TIP set to acquire PEMA GmbH

Amsterdam, The Netherlands: TIP Trailer Services, a portfolio company of I Squared Capital and a leading trailer leasing, rental, maintenance and repair provider across Europe and Canada, has signed an agreement to acquire PEMA GmbH from Société Générale.


PEMA is a commercial vehicle leasing and rental company offering services in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland. It will bolster TIP’s geographic footprint, strengthen its position in Germany and provide an entrance into the Swiss market.


“This is an exciting step in our path of growth and diversification as we continue to build a stronger platform for the benefit of our customers, partners, employees and stakeholders,” said Adil Rahmathulla, Chairman of the TIP Trailer Services Board and Managing Partner of I Squared Capital.


“With the acquisition of PEMA, TIP will gain scale and increased geographic diversification with a stronger position in Germany. We continue to seek opportunities to grow the platform, including high-end specialized assets, while maintaining our established offerings and levels of service.”


Bob Fast, President and CEO of TIP Trailer Services, noted: “The combined companies will have nearly 89,000 trailers and trucks as well as over 100 workshops offering the largest repair network in Europe and Canada and provide a one-stop shop solution for a wide variety of commercial vehicle equipment.


“Our customers will have a seamless service partner across Europe and Canada, simplifying their fleet management and enabling them to focus on their core business activities while enjoying TIP’s strong reliability and customer service.”


TIP and PEMA are service-orientated companies with longstanding experience in transportation and logistics across Europe supporting customer needs throughout the entire life cycle of trailers, swap bodies and trucks.


Since 2008, PEMA has been part of the GEFA Group, the equipment finance arm of French banking group Société Générale.


Closing is expected in the coming months subject to customary regulatory approvals.
