Hamilton Rentals splits from Xchange Technology  Group to concentrate on the UK IT Rental market 
London, 12th August  2013 Hamilton Rentals, the UK’s largest independent provider of IT rental and asset management solutions, has completed a management buyout from its previous owner Xchange Technology Group (XTG).  The move will allow the business to focus on the UK market and to expand its range of solutions.

 Led by established MD Martin O’Connor, who has led the business since 2007, Hamilton Rentals remains the largest independent provider of IT rental and asset management solutions in the UK. The new found independence will allow Hamilton Rentals to invest in new solutions and expand its product evaluation services which it provides already to many of the leading technology manufacturers.

This will also enable the business to put renewed focus on its event management solutions where they are a turnkey provider of full design, rental, implementation and management solutions for sporting events and conferences.

Commenting on the buyout, Martin O’Connor said “This is excellent news for Hamilton Rentals, our customers, partners and hard-working staff. We’ve enjoyed great success over the past years and this now allows us to focus on and invest in the areas where we’re experiencing the greatest demand and success. We will capitalize on our 40 years of industry experience to reinforce our market-leading position”.

Jeff McFarlane, CEO of XTG adds “We wish the team at Hamilton Rentals all the best in the future and look forward to maintaining a strategic relationship and partnership with Hamilton Rentals going forward”.
