EXECUTIVE REPORT


Showing passion


A cross-section of hirers from Scotland to Surrey tell us why they are so excited about attending the Executive Hire Show, and why other passionate hirers should do so.





Tim Smith, MD, Brandon Hire


The Executive Hire Show has become an important date on our calendar. It’s an opportunity for us to bring our senior managers together in an exciting environment and to make sure we all know what’s new in the industry. In the current climate it’s also a really cost-efficient way for us to catch up with all our key suppliers and network with a whole host of people, because it’s literally a who’s who of the hire world.

Paul O’Brien, MD, Hire & Safety UK, Liverpool


I am really looking forward to the Show. It is


vital for hirers to stay in touch with new products and suppliers. Most independents have individual customer bases and target distinct markets, and at Hire & Safety UK we certainly serve a diverse range of clients, not just builders and tradesmen, but also rail contractors and power station operators. I will be looking out for new products to target particular market niches. I started Hire & Safety UK last November,


having previously worked for other hirers since leaving school at 16, including HSS, A-Plant, Speedy and Supply UK, and I wanted to run my own operation. I am looking forward to meeting other industry colleagues and contacts at the Show.





Tony Boulger, Sales Director, TM Newburn Group, Bradford


I have been to the Show several times and I’ll be going again in February. We specialise in generator hire and sales, and at this year’s Show we were very impressed by SDMO’s compact R10C Powerbox, which we added to the fleet shortly afterwards.


For me, the exhibition is all about networking. You see people you know and you get to see all the new equipment. All hirers should be looking to stay one step ahead and gain a competitive edge, and if you don’t go the Show, how can you know what is happening in your industry?





Chris Stapleton, Branch Manager, Hirebase, Nantwich depot

Neil Russam, Sales Manager, Prestige Hire, West Bromwich


Although this will be the third time I will have been to the Show, it will be my first visit representing Prestige, which I joined last November. I’ll be going in order to find out about the latest equipment designed to make it easier for our customers to get jobs done effectively, and which can give us a competitive edge. There is hire business out there: you just have to knock on more doors and tell people about the benefits of the equipment you can offer them. I plan to take some of our key customers with us to the Show, to enable them to see the latest problem-solving equipment and practical solutions.

We chiefly serve small builders and tradesmen, rather than big national contractors, and they have remained busy all year. Tools and equipment, and our mini excavators up to 2.8 tonne, are constantly in demand, and we have been cross-hiring larger machines to meet demand. So we continue to consider new fleet acquisitions, and I’ll be going to the Show again to see what’s new. New products are coming out all the time and it is vitally important that hirers keep in touch with the latest market opportunities. I will be able to make contact with existing suppliers, like The Hire Supply Company, Takeuchi amd Thwaites, as well as potential new ones. At the Ricoh, you can see them all under one roof. The venue is easy to get to, and I’ll make a full day of my visit. I have been in the industry for more than 20 years and the Show is a great opportunity to meet old colleagues and contacts.
