Nottingham, the latter site having been acquired following the demise of Hewden at the end of 2016. Previous sites in Bradford and Wakefield have been combined into larger facilities in Castleford, while the Warrington depot has been re-located to bigger premises. In all, the business employs more than 470 people.


Eighteen months ago, the company closed its operation in Qatar, which was originally formed in 2009 to serve the construction market, but since the price of gas and oil crashed in 2014 many infrastructure jobs were cancelled and business in the region became difficult. However, Graham Nixon says that the company would look at other overseas opportunities if they arose.


Potential new depots


Nixon Hire has supplied new accommodation units for Phase 1 of the HS2 project at a number of compounds near Milton Keynes, and it hopes to provide more equipment as construction activity develops. Indeed, Graham Nixon says the company is looking to open additional depots in the Birmingham area, with other regions under consideration, including the south coast and London.


To increase efficiency, the business has embraced paperless, digital technology with systems such as the JobWatch product from BigChange Apps for fitters and other mobile workers. Job details are sent via the app, which links to Nixon Hire’s MCS-rm software to ensure records are up-to-date.


In 2011, Nixon Hire launched ‘2020 Vision’, a ten-year strategic business plan for the family-owned operation, and this was re-launched in 2016 because many of the targets had been achieved ahead of schedule. Now, just two years away from its 2020 goal, the company has engaged with Deloitte to draft a further five- year business plan to help realise its strategic growth ambitions. “Celebrating 50 years of business in 2017 gave us a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the many achievements and successes of the company,” said Graham Nixon. “It is certainly a history of growth to be very proud of. However, we can't stand still. We never take our eye off the ball.”
