The Tamworth Team



Kennards Hire has expanded its network in regional New South Wales with the opening of a new branch in Tamworth, NSW offering their reliable equipment and customer service to over 200,000 locals in the New England and North West region. The new branch brings the company’s network to 52 branches in NSW and the ACT, and comes following the acquisition of equipment from A1 Hire.

As the largest growing regional area in New South Wales, the country town is currently experiencing a boom in retail, construction and infrastructure. The Tamworth Branch will offer a range of equipment never seen before in the area, meaning finding the right tools for all projects ranging from home DIY to large civil and government jobs just got much easier.

Branch Manager, Chris Burton, stresses the importance of Kennards Hire supporting the local community with the opening of the new branch.




“Kennards Hire is family-owned company and has been around since 1948. Our values are aligned with the country way of life - always there to lend a hand. We’re always looking to support the local community and have already donated some equipment to the Tamworth Men’s Shed and BackTrack, a group that helps young, at-risk members of our community. We’ve also put up our hand to sponsor the Pirates Rugby Club and Pirates Netball Club,” said Chris.

“Kennards Hire will be using the expertise of local businesses to support us in maintaining our high level of customer service. Transport, equipment maintenance and repairs, and supplying services are all needed to support our branch operations. As our business grows, we will also be looking at expanding our team from the local community.”

Joining Chris is fellow Tamworth local Peter Cooke, and Mark Smith, who transferred from the Brookvale Branch for a tree change. With 38 years combined experience in the equipment hire industry, customers can rest assured that they’re in good hands with the Kennards Hire Tamworth team.
