TR Group acquires Perth hire business

Fleet rental specialist, TR Group, has announced the acquisition of a Perth-based business.

Axle Hire, a truck rental company that offers  a modern and diverse fleet of prime movers, rigid trucks and trailers, has been brought into the fold at TR Group effective today.

The purchase aligns with the Group’s nationwide expansion strategy, adding Perth to an existing presence in Melbourne, Brisbane and Newcastle and brings with it the addition of approximately 250 vehicles.

TR Group Australia General Manager Peter Irwin called the acquisition a strategic move.

“We recognise the importance of the Perth market to Australia and have spent significant time considering the best way for us to enter the market,” he said.

“We believe that the acquisition of Axle Hire provides an excellent springboard to success and look forward to welcoming our new Perth team into the TR Australia family, and the opportunity to deliver our expertise and genuine customer focus to Western Australia,” said Irwin.

The acquisition grows TR Group Australia’s fleet to over 2000 trailers and more than 300 prime movers.

With over 20 plus categories of trailers including PBS-approved A-double combinations fully permitted in accordance with NHVR regulations and a new fleet of prime movers and refrigeration trailers, the company said it had a solution for any project.
