Steve McKenzie's January update

Well that is all of the Executive Hire Show visits finished for another year! I could not be more proud of the commitment and passion that the team have put into their visits. We did not just hit our visit target of 750, we smashed it visiting an amazing 806 hirers and travelling 21669 miles!

My own travels during January have ensured that I have finished all parts of my area and reached out to as many hirers as possible. As ever, I have visited some great hirers, many of whom are looking forward to the hire industry’s annual event! As well as tool & equipment hirers, I have also called on companies that specialise in plant, powered access and power generation. I visited Spectrum Plant in Warrington who specialise in the hire & sales of stump grinders, chippers and shredders. They had some seriously impressive pieces of kit on display and I am always interested to speak to hirers that do something a little bit different. I spoke to Hire Manager, Mark Henderson who is looking forward to visiting the Show. Mark commented, “Although we are quite specialised in what we hire out, the Show gives us the opportunity to look for new products and ideas that could enhance our offering.”

Another interesting visit was to Fast Hire UK who trade from a seriously impressive depot in Bredbury near Stockport. Fast Hire UK are part of the Westgate Group that specialises in the hire, sale and repair of a diverse range of construction equipment. Not only have Fast Hire UK been loyal supporters of EHS for a number of years, their sister company Parkway Plant Sales is actually exhibiting at EHS 2019 to showcase their range of tracked mini dumpers. It is great to see that the company views EHS as the best possible event to show their new products to the UK hire industry!

On behalf of the whole team at the HSC Group, I would like to extend a very warm invitation for all hirers to come and see us on stand E42 just inside the main entrance to Hall 1. We will have 10 team members on the stand to welcome you, some amazing Show Only deals, new product launches and upgrades to several of our existing products! As ever, we will have a competition on the stand with the opportunity to win a Lifan Eco Bike powered by a Lithium Ion battery!

See you at the Show!!
