Leasys, FCA Bank’s mobility solutions and contract hire company, announces the acquisition of WinRent, one of the main short-term car rental firms in Italy. Following this transaction, Leasys S.p.A. owns all outstanding shares of Win Rent S.p.A.
The acquisition of this short-term car rental company is a further step in Leasys strategy to become a 360-degree provider of mobility solutions for small and large companies, public administration, professionals and individuals. Leasys will now be able to provide short-term car rentals, in addition to the medium- and long-term car hire services, fleet management, corporate car sharing, used car rental and the remarketing of vehicles through the Clickar electronic platform.
With the integration of WinRent – a company headquartered in Rome Fiumicino, with a fleet of over 4,000 cars and commercial vehicles and a network of 80 rental locations in Italy’s main airports, railway stations and cities – Leasys further expands its offering of mobility services, a fast growing area that will soon include electric and hybrid vehicles.
Giacomo Carelli, CEO of FCA Bank and Chairman of Leasys S.p.A. said: “We are very proud to announce the acquisition of WinRent, a model of excellence in the short-term car rental sector in Italy that will enable Leasys to play a growing role as a global integrated player in new mobility, providing products and services along the entire value chain”.
The high quality of its services, the extensive network coverage and customer service as well as a topflight management team allowed WinRent to stand out over the years for its competitiveness and transparency, which are particularly appreciated by both Italian and international customers.
Salvatore Vinti, founder of WinRent and departing Chairman and CEO, said: "It is an honour and a great personal and professional satisfaction to hand over the keys of WinRent to such a well-known group as FCA Bank, which will ensure growth opportunities and expansion, both in Italy and abroad."
The new CEO of WinRent will be Ubaldo Della Penna, from Leasys’s commercial department. Alberto Grippo, CEO of Leasys, will be WinRent’s Chairman.
