Loxam is the European leader in the rental of capital equipment for civil engineering and construction.
All major construction companies are served by Loxam as well as many industrial customers.
In 2005, when the company was sold to the management, Loxam was already the number 2 player in Europe with subsidiaries in Spain, Switzerland and Benelux.
At the time of Alpha's initial investment, in 1999, Loxam was the clear leader in the French market.
In December 2003, Alpha participated to a secondary leveraged buyout through a recapitalization to pursue the expansion plan before selling its stake to management in 2005.
Alpha has been key in helping Loxam acquire a significant position in other European markets (especially Germany and the UK) through acquisitions, which enhanced its leadership position.
