Company History

Hamilton Rentals was incorporated in 1972, providing short term rental of electronic office, computer and Audio Visual and test and measurement equipment.

Acquired by Atlantic Computers in 1987, Hamilton was subject to a management buyout in 1990 following the closure of Atlantic and Atlantic’s parent, British and Commonwealth Merchant Bank.

In 1997, the company was acquired by Stock Exchange listed Compel Group plc. Hamilton acquired competitors, Computer Micro Rentals and the rental division of P&P Micro’s, then acquiring two of its biggest competitors, Syscap Rentals in 2003 and Hire IT in 2005 respectively. Following the acquisition of Compel by private equity funded 2e2 in 2007 and still majoring on short term computer rental, Hamilton Rentals was subject to a management buyout (MBO) in July 2008.

2010 Hamilton established a division called Hamilton Asset Management to specialise in the provision of whole of life IT asset management services including secure data erasure/destruction, IT recycling, resale of refurbished equipment and full audit final disposition, compliant with environmental legislation.
