EXECUTIVE REPORT continued


incorporating an aesthetic of 19th century industrial machinery. It certainly looked impressive and provided the power for the company’s hospitality unit, which was decorated in a similar style. The adaptation was undertaken by Flying Hire’s technician Paul Baker, and the generator was adorned with six exhaust pipes and characters made from pistons and other engine components. The company specialises in the events market and offers chiefly Inmesol and Himoinsa machines.


Flying Hire’s ‘steampunk’ generator.


Kenton Hughes, a Himoinsa dealership based in Herefordshire, displayed examples of the machines that it can configure for extremely quite operation to meet the needs of users in the TV and film production industries and for other noise-sensitive environments throughout the country .


The business now has more than 30 of these sets in the fleet with very high utilisation rates, according to founder Kenton Hughes, and rather like the lorries in some road hauliers’ fleets, each machine has a name painted on the side. The 45kVA HYW 45 model on display was called Reggie. “We actually purchased another at the same time, and it is named Ronnie. When we added another two, we christened them Chas and Dave. It’s a bit of fun, and customers who order from us again literally ask for the machines by name!”





Kenton Hughes’ fleet includes customised low-noise Himoinsa generators.
