Steve McKenzie's October update

It is great to be back visiting hirers to tell them all about EHS 2019! Even more so this year as the rest of the Sales Team from the HSC Group are working with me on the project!

During the first couple of weeks, my visits have taken me to Crewe, Nantwich, Bolton, Telford, Shrewsbury, Burscough and Southport. I have caught up with a number of hirers that attended the 2018 event and it is interesting to see how they have fared during the year. Most of the hirers that I have visited are reporting positive business levels and the fact that they are continuing to invest if their fleets to keep with the ongoing demand.

One of my visits took me to Hodgson Tool Hire in Burscough, where I spoke to Area Manager Lee Cavey. Lee is a regular visitor to the Show with Managing Director, Mike Hodgson and they use their annual visit to look for new and innovative products to potentially add to their hire fleet. The depot is very impressive with a vast array of machinery, consumables and accessories for sale in their showroom. They have an extensive modern hire fleet including compact plant, access, gardening products, tools and equipment. I explained to Lee about the improvements that are being made with the 2019 Show and highlighted the new layout for the halls which will freshen up the event. We look forward to welcoming Mike and Lee to EHS 2019, which is going to be bigger and better than ever!

I have got a lot of visits planned during November and at the end of the month will be doing my annual tour of Ireland which will take me all across the North and South of the island!
