Electro Rent, one of the world’s largest providers of electronic test equipment for rent, lease or used sales, is opening a new office in London. The corporation’s European subsidiary Electro Rent Europe has already been operating successfully in the UK for 10 years and experienced a continuous growth of business.

The new UK office will allow Electro Rent Europe to support current customers with better local service and drive future expansion in the region. The office will be staffed by local Electro Rent employees and will offer technical sales and support services, provide on-site training and seminars and hold local inventory for rapid delivery of critical items.

For Electro Rent Europe, managing director David Saeys commented, “Our commitment to open an office in the UK was mainly driven by our success over the last 10 years. Establishing a local presence is a logical next step to building on this success and will enable us to provide a true local service to our existing and future customers. Over the past few months we have also seen some significant changes in the UK test equipment rental market. With the fusion of our two largest competitors, customers no longer have the true opportunity to compare competitive offers. By extending our commitment to the UK with a new office, we are giving real choice back to the market, offering the broadest range of test equipment for rent, lease or purchase in the UK.”

Electro Rent has achieved significant growth in its business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa over the past 10 years as part of its long term strategic plan. Electro Rent continues to work with market leading companies in Telecommunications, Aerospace/Defense and Semiconductor industries. The UK is a key element of the company’s long term plans for EMEA and the new office supports the continuing growth of Electro Rent in the UK.
