Electro Rent sells its UK test & measurement rental business to MCS Rentals Limited


Dear Customer, Electro Rent, a leading test and measurement equipment management organisation, has announced that it has sold its UK test & measurement rental business to MCS Rentals Limited (‘MCS Rentals’) effective February 4th, 2019.

You may be aware that the UK Competition & Markets Authority (‘CMA’) launched an inquiry into the acquisition of Microlease by Electro Rent in February 2017. Final Undertakings were agreed with the CMA in July 2018, requiring the sale of Electro Rent’s UK test and measurement equipment rental business (‘ERUK’) to a competitor. The transaction has now completed. The sale includes all ERUK’s open rental and lease orders in the UK, which have been transferred to MCS Rentals under the relevant contract terms.

MCS Rentals will be writing to all customers with rental orders, to welcome them and brief them that the rental and lease contracts will continue business as usual. Please update your payment details to reflect the next invoices sent out by MCS Rentals.

The telephone number for support relating to rental and lease contracts remains the same: 0845 077 2900. MCS Rentals address is New Vision Business Park, Glascoed Road, St Asaph, Denbighshire, United Kingdom LL17 0LP. You should deal solely with MCS Rentals in respect of your current rental orders/contracts. This means that all equipment returns should be directed to the address above and all enquiries about existing rental orders/contracts should be made to MCS Rentals using the contact details above. Please contact MCS Rentals for all new enquiries, either at the telephone number above, or via https://mcs-testequipment.com.

Thank you for your past custom and we are certain that MCS Rentals will be delighted to welcome you as a customer.


Your Sincerely

André Vandenberk
General manager
