    Kennards is a hub for traffic equipment, with traffic signs, attenuators and variable message signs (VMS) being just some of the gear available on hire.

    If you need road signs and other traffic equipment for an event or construction purposes, Kennards is your one-stop shop.

    One of the world's largest gold mines, located in Papua New Guinea, acquired the services of Kennards hiring fifteen light towers.

    Tenix, a leading provider of end-to end services to owners of gas, electricity, water and other network industrial assets in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, hired the light towers while working on the island of Lihir.

    Tenix senior quality surveyor Chris Morris said that the remote location and climate make for "pretty harsh conditions" so it was important to have equipment that was reliable.

    "Kennards provided us with good machines and, every three months, they send us the spare parts we need to carry out routine service on site," he said.

    "We are now in the process of hiring ten lighting towers for another project about to start at Hidden Valley on the mainland of Papua New Guinea. A further five units will be hired for a further project on Lihir Island."
