SG Fleet acquires Motiva Group


SG Fleet has acquired UK contract hire, short-term rental, and fleet management organisation Motiva Group.

The acquisition by SG Fleet, which operates in the UK, New Zealand and Australia, aims to expand the organisation’s presence in the UK contract hire market, and strengthen its commercial vehicle and daily rental operations.

The acquisition of Motiva Group follows that of Fleet Hire in August 2016. As of November 2016, the Fleet Hire and SG Fleet teams are both based in Hamptom-in-Arden, in the Midlands.

Peter Davenport, managing director, Peter Wright, sales director, and Matt Hill, financial controller at Motiva Group, will remain in key roles within the business.

David Fernandes (pictured), managing director at SG Fleet UK, said: “Motiva is an excellent addition to our UK operations. It brings further skills in the specialist light commercial vehicle segment and daily rental operations, as well as an increased footprint in the contract hire market.

“I am delighted that Peter Davenport has chosen to remain with the business and help deliver our strategic plans in the UK. Furthermore, we are very pleased with the acquisition of Fleet Hire and the progress on the integration to date.”

Davenport added: “I am excited about taking the business forward and the investment SG Fleet brings. [Its] strategic plans in the UK presented an exciting opportunity for the team at Motiva and will add value to the service population of our customers.”
