Fortis Hire Acquires JB Event Facilities

27 May 2021

PRESS RELEASE 

 

Fortis Hire (“Fortis”), the UK’s fastest growing luxury toilet company announces its new growth plans for 2021 with the acquisition of JB Event Facilities Ltd (“JB”). This will enable Fortis Hire to provide its renowned levels of customer service to an extended geographical area. 

Established in 2017, Fortis Hire is a family run business founded by Michael Allan and Tim Allan. They identified an opportunity to provide market leading levels of service with high quality luxury toilet trailers for both weddings and events, large and small. The business has grown 10-fold since it was established and the acquisition of JB Event Facilities will increase the fleet to more than 80 luxury toilet and shower trailers, and over 200 plastic toilets . Further exponential growth is planned for 2021 and beyond. 

JB Events Facilities was founded by a father and son team, Jamie and Jim in the 1990s, growing the business into one of the most recognised toilet companies in the UK. For many years JB Events have provided toilet facilities to Silverstone Circuit building a reputation for industry leading high quality service. 

The acquisition of JB Event Facilities was an opportunity not to be missed. Since joining the luxury toilet circuit, Michael and his team have worked closely with Jamie, his wife Sue and their son James as both companies share very similar values and principles. 

Michael, Managing Director of Fortis Hire, will be working closely with Jamie and his family to ensure a smooth merger of the two businesses. Jamie, Sue and James are a significant part of the acquisition and their continued roles are a key component to the continued success and growth of Fortis Hire. 

After the Covid-19 Pandemic, Fortis Hire envisages a substantial increase in demand for luxury and plastic toilet hire due to the number of Weddings and Events postponed  from 2020 and the beginning of 2021. With the acquisition of JB, Fortis Hire’s combined fleet of over 80 luxury toilet and shower trailers, and over 200 plastic toilets will enable them to service a large percentage of not only the London and Home Counties but the Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire counties. 

To customers, old and new, its business as usual, high quality products provided with exceptional customer service.
