In response to growing demands, Kennards Hire has opened its newest branch in one of New Zealand’s most populous cities: Lower Hutt. As the award-winning family-owned equipment hire business seeks to help serve the 100,000-strong city, the Lower Hutt branch will be Kennards Hire’s 22nd branch in New Zealand.

In the previous year, construction and rental hiring accounted for nearly $100M NZD of Lower Hutt’s economy, and Kennards Hire hopes to help nurture this growth and help increase the region’s flourishing industries with this new branch.

Kennards Hire Lower Hutt offers an extensive range of equipment suitable for customers across all trades. From portable lighting, to specialist tools like 26 inch concrete saws, remote controlled articulated pad foot rollers, 54 inch zero turn lawn mowers, and 100 KVA towable generators with ATS capabilities and solar trickle charging for backup power, the branch has all the equipment necessary to get the job done.

Branch Manager, Gareth Caine, looks forward to fulfilling the Lower Hutt community’s hire needs with Kennards Hire’s vast range of products on offer.

“With both DIY and construction projects on the rise, we are excited to see such great pick up in the area, including hires for weekend projects and new industry accounts.”

“Our branch has only been up and running for a short time but I really look forward to meeting more of Lower Hutt’s locals and forming strong relationships with new customers over the next couple of months.”

Kennards Hire Lower Hutt is already starting to build strong relationships with the local community.

At the recent Hutt Central Primary School Gala, the branch helped with lighting towers, BBQs, generators and staging. Michael Gendall, Principal, and the organising committee were very thankful for the support.

“The gear that Kennards Hire gave us created great ambiance for our Gala event on the night. We were able to take the event well into the evening and it really helped us with packing up too.”

The Kennards Hire Lower Hutt team is made up of Gareth Caine, Matt De Jongh, Isaac Moffat-Young, and Andrew Tanner. Offering a wealth of knowledge drawn from over 30 years of combined experience, the team here will be able to provide unbeaten service to customers throughout the region.
