Don't think anything is going on as such, speedy have just been cutting there cloth to suit the market for the last 5 years. This year things have boomed in the building trade which is why speedy has picked up. It's not rocket science really, market slows they slow market picks up they pickup.
A few years back I made my first post on this site, the post was about Speedy sitting on a golden egg.
That golden egg being offshore renewables, since that time I have watched Speedy grow very strongly in the offshore services sector i.e. inspections, maintenance, training and compliance management to name but a few http://www.speedyservices.com/services.
If there is a buy out on the cards, then I believe the reason speedy will be bought out, will be for the services sector and not the hire services.
I am not sure what the most expensive item is that speedy hire out, maybe mini digger at £400 a week, qualified people offshore working in the above fields, can earn that in a day. Compliance management, HSE especially its very big business.
