The inherent synergies between Imperial, Goscor and Bobcat SA will enable the group to rapidly develop the acquired businesses. The company has an excellent reputation for product quality and service in both the equipment supply and equipment rental markets. Bobcat SA’s entrepreneurial culture aligns with both Imperial’s and Goscor’s business philosophy and values, which encourage entrepreneurship and innovation.
