Australian family-owned and operated equipment hire company, Kennards Hire, is taking hire higher with its acquisition of Top End Access Hire in Darwin, Northern Territory.
A first of its kind in the Kennards Hire’s network, the dedicated Access branch will provide an extensive range of height and lift solutions equipment, ranging from forklifts to telehandlers, not to mention it’s home to the largest boom lift available in Australia. With a reach of 180 ft, the boom lift has been a game-changer for jobsites that need reach, stability and safety.
Kennards Hire Area Manager, Trent Torrens shared, “Kennards Hire is excited to be carrying on an already amazing legacy started in Darwin by Top End Access Hire.
“We’re lucky to have the experienced staff from their team join us to continue the friendly and knowledgeable service customers are used to.
“This is the first Access-specific branch for Kennards Hire and its specialised equipment range will cater to the growing infrastructure developments and needs in the Northern Territory. We are very excited to host a range of equipment, including the 180ft boom lift, in our fleet. We’re confident this will continue to be a very sought-after piece of kit.”
Trent, who has over 12 years of experience working with Kennards Hire and over 25 years within the hire industry joins forces alongside locals, Branch Manager Lisa Bretherton, Assistant Branch Manager Wally Drescher, mechanic Dave Whelan, drivers John Bretherton and Mark Sherwood, alongside Serviceperson Patrick Bretherton. The team is also lucky to have live-in mascot, Ava, a 5-month-old Great Dane puppy, owned by Branch Manager, Lisa.
The Kennards Hire Access team is looking forward to growing existing relationships with the extended community and will continue to support local sporting groups and community events.
Having entered the Northern Territory market in 2011, the company’s latest acquisition expands Kennards Hire’s ever-growing network to six branches across the region, and will support the growing population and construction activity anticipated over the coming years in the Top End.
The new branch is conveniently located at 898 Stuart Highway, Pinelands, NT, 0829. For all your hire equipment needs, call the Kennards Hire Access team on 08 7929 3800 or visit our website.
