Compaction specialist, Conplant, has acquired Compaction Australia, a Queensland-based compaction hire company.

Effective as of February 1, 2018, the acquisition is in line with Conplant's core business strategy of offering the most diverse and comprehensive range of compaction solutions across Australia.

"Compaction Australia has a solid reputation for excellent customer service and quality equipment," said Ian Coleman, Conplant managing director.

"The company culture perfectly complements our strong reputation for delivering reliable compaction products with no-nonsense, specialist advice."

"We've gained some very experienced and dedicated people which will bolster our unmatched customer service and technical know-how. The transaction was a very logical and natural fit for us," he added.

The acquisition includes Ammann, Caterpillar and Hamm rollers, field service vehicles, low loaders as well as a number of dedicated employees. This deal and other mid-term plans will see Conplant's fleet grow to 1000 rollers this year, providing a more diverse pool of products for major projects and contractor needs, as well as, improved availability.
