HAE has confirmed several events and initiatives to be held during the 2011 Executive Hire Show. As well as having its usual stand, the Association will be running practical surgeries during the exhibition to assist hire companies with specific business advice, and several HAE partners will be taking part. It will also be presenting certificates to successful candidates of the Level 2 NVQ - Hire and Rental Desk Operations to kick off the Show’s traditional Party on the Wednesday evening. This presentation will showcase the commitment of hire professionals and will recognise the investment in training made by

GenQuip creates Fusion solution

GenQuip recently devised a special site solution for Balfour Beatty personnel working on the Forth Road Bridge, who found that tight space constraints meant a standard welfare unit was inappropriate. The principal issue to

overcome was the entry and exit to the welfare unit from the side. The manufacturer recommended that a re-designed doorway access at the rear of its Groundhog Fusion+ mobile unit would provide a satisfactory solution, and a total of six were delivered to site.

The Fusion+ is powered by on-board batteries, enabling all systems to operate without assistance from the engine-driven battery charger. This reduces fuel costs and extends service intervals. The water, heating and lighting are all powered by the same 12V system.

New premises for Lyte

Lyte Ladders & Towers has re-located its manufacturing operations to Swansea Enterprise Park from its previous factory in Ystradgynlais, where it had been based for ten years. Lyte, which employs 100 people, has been established since 1947 and manufactures a large range of domestic, trade and industrial steps, ladders, towers and bespoke access equipment. The new premises also include PASMA ladder and tower training facilities.

HAE members. From the successful candidates, one will be chosen to be the Hire Achiever of the Year, to be announced at the HAE Awards of Excellence at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 7 May. MD Graham Arundell said, “Our members are major participants in the Show, so it made perfect sense for HAE to take a more active role for 2011. We are delighted to be part of next year’s line-up and to be given the opportunity to recognise our members’ achievements. The surgeries proved very successful last year, and members were keen to make sure they were part of our offering for 2011.”

Makita makes an entry

Makita tools are being used to train police officers in appropriate techniques for making a forced entry into all types of property. A special Method of Entry skills course has been developed by the National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA) at Coventry, a central resource for British policing, where technical and tactical operations are developed. The course includes guidance in using a DPC6430 disc cutter with a Nemesis diamond blade to slice through metal bars, security grilles and entrance doors. Training is also given on using the manufacturer’s impact drivers and wrenches, reciprocating saws and cordless grinders. Specialist NPIA trainers have themselves attended bespoke courses at Makita’s UK headquarters at Milton Keynes.
