    Kennards Hire Test & Measure expands into NSW

    Published on 23 September 2014, Tuesday, 3:58 PM

    The two established specialist Kennards Hire Test & Measure branches, one in Glandore, Adelaide and the other in East Brisbane, has seen significant growth and an increase in demand for specialised testing and measurement equipment.

    This has led to Kennards Hire Test & Measure expanding the network with the establishment of a new branch at Artarmon, Sydney.

    Specialist testing equipment plays an essential role in ensuring the safety of projects. Kennards Hire Test & Measure provide customers in the oil & gas and mining industry, sewer and water mains construction, electrical data and communications and plumbing industries with innovative and leading-edge test and measurement equipment.

    Darren Simmons, General Manager, Kennards Hire NSW said, “Since establishing Kennards Hire Test & Measure we had always planned to open a branch in Sydney and now those plans have come to fruition.

    “We’ve had many enquiries from customers throughout NSW seeking specialist testing equipment, which were supplied from either the SA or QLD branches,” Darren continued. “The new branch at Artarmon not only expands our product offering but enables us to better serve the needs of our customers Australia wide.”

    Mark Embury, Branch Manager at Kennards Hire Test & Measure Artarmon said, “For customers the biggest advantage of hiring specialised testing equipment is they don’t have the initial purchase and ongoing maintenance and calibration certification costs for equipment they may only use once every few months.

    “Hiring maximises the financial return on a project, increases productivity and minimises downtime if their equipment is unavailable on the project site.”

    The equipment available from Kennards Hire Test & Measure ranges from hydrostatic test pumps, anchor testers, non-invasive smoke machines and GPS locators used for surveying to an extensive array of hand-held devices.

    The majority of the equipment is NATA calibrated and all equipment is tagged with a QR code. This provides via smartphone app, tablet or desktop computer instant access to service history and operator manual for that specific piece of equipment.

    The equipment at Kennards Hire Test & Measure will complement equipment available within its general hire and other specialist branches: Kennards Hire Concrete Care, Kennards Hire Lift & Shift, Kennards Hire Pump & Power, Kennards Hire Traffic and Kennards Hire Rail.
