Almost 70 years after making their first hire, Kennards Hire is still expanding, improving and investing in new local markets, having opened its 23rd branch in Victoria after the acquisition of Werribee Trade Hire.
Like Kennards Hire, Werribee Trade Hire has always been a family owned business, and the team has many years’ experience in the industry. True to its values, Kennards Hire will retain the expert staff from Werribee Trade Hire, putting to use their local knowledge and excellent customer relationships.
Neil Masterson, General Manager of Kennards Hire, Victoria identified Werribee Trade Hire’s local expertise as being crucial to Kennards Hire’s success in the area.
“Werribee has always been on the strategic radar for Kennards Hire as a network addition,” Neil said.
“The owners, Miro and Roberta Strmecki, have built a great local business Their equipment fleet and the customers they service are almost identical to Kennards core market, perfectly complementing our business model,” He continued.
Kennards Hire identified Werribee as the ideal location to service Melbourne’s western suburbs.
“The western suburbs are a rapidly expanding part of metro Melbourne and in growing need of housing and infrastructure development. Our branches at Brooklyn and Geelong do their best to service this market, but we wanted to be closer to the action to provide the rapid service, and wide range of reliable hire equipment designed to make our customers job easy.” Neil explained.
The branch opened for business on 28 November, and while customers can expect to see a brand new sign above the door, the friendly and knowledgeable team they’ve come to know over the years behind the counter will still be the same.
Kennards Hire’s Werribee branch is located at 305 Princes Highway, Werribee. Contact the branch on 03 9731 0600 or visit www.kennards.com.au for more information.
