Boels is an ambitious and fast-growing company with over 450 branches in 12 European countries. As an organisation that employs more than 4000 people, we are known for our creative and enterprising spirit and, more importantly, for the opportunities we offer in the area of career development.

Since our foundation in 1977, there has always been one goal: to make our customers happy with our passion for solutions. We provide tailored advice, with practical know-how and a can-do mentality. This is also reflected in our core values. For instance, we love doing business. We get things done by working together and we find a solution for every challenge.

In the UK, Boels started in April 2017 as a result of the acquisition of Supply UK. After the acquisitions of Already Hire (April 2018) and Artisan & SAS (September 2018) Boels now has 40 UK branches and 365 employees.
