ARI Expands Global Reach with HPI Acquisition


Carl Ortell

Fleet man­age­ment solu­tions extend through Europe, strength­en­ing ARI’s strate­gic and grow­ing glob­al foot­print. 

ARI® has acquired HPI Fleet and its relat­ed Euro­pean busi­ness enti­ties. The trans­ac­tion is expect­ed to close in Octo­ber, at which time HPI Fleet will oper­ate as ARI. The acqui­si­tion sup­ports ARI’s con­tin­ued devel­op­ment of a strong, strate­gic glob­al foot­print and fol­lows ARI’s recent expan­sion into the UK and Ger­many. ARI’s Euro­pean oper­a­tions will now include ser­vice deliv­ery to cus­tomers in Aus­tria, Bel­gium, Den­mark, Fin­land, France, Ger­many, Italy, Ire­land, Lux­em­bourg, the Nether­lands, Por­tu­gal, Spain, Swe­den, Switzer­land and the UK.

“The acqui­si­tion of HPI Fleet, in tan­dem with our busi­ness­es in the UK and Ger­many, reflects our gen­uine com­mit­ment to serve the needs of our cus­tomers who are grow­ing glob­al­ly, as well as to deliv­er fleet solu­tions tai­lored to meet in-coun­try needs,” said ARI Pres­i­dent Carl A. Ortell.

“ARI’s sig­nif­i­cant glob­al invest­ment over the past sev­er­al years reflects the con­fi­dence we have in a uni­ver­sal need for our unique brand of ‘world-class’ fleet man­age­ment,” notes Chris Con­roy, man­ag­ing direc­tor of glob­al oper­a­tions. “We intend to lever­age our expand­ed geo­graph­ic foot­print to pro­vide ser­vices to both our exist­ing mul­ti-nation­al cus­tomers and to those with region­al require­ments in Europe. As with all of ARI’s busi­ness­es, this will be sup­port­ed by con­tin­ued invest­ment in peo­ple, process­es, and tech­nol­o­gy.” 

ARI will man­age its con­ti­nen­tal Euro­pean oper­a­tions from its offices in Stuttgart and Frank­furt, Ger­many, and its UK oper­a­tions from Chip­pen­ham, Eng­land.
