ERA welcomes Ardent Hire and Continest as members

By ERA05 May 2021

The European Rental Association (ERA) is very pleased to welcome Ardent Hire and Continest as new members. Ardent Hire has joined ERA as a direct member and Continest as an associate member.

Ardent Hire Solutions Limited is a leading provider of technical expertise and plant hire equipment in the UK. With a ‎fleet of more than 7,000 assets, 11 depots and 250 employees, Ardent supports ‎housebuilders, national/regional infrastructure contractors, building merchants and local contractors.

‎Its hire fleet includes excavators, telehandlers, rollers, dumpers, roto-telehandlers and ancillaries, among others.

A‎s a relatively new company, founded in 2015 following the acquisition and merger of two family businesses, Ardent Hire is challenging the hire industry to do things differently. The core of their proposition is about helping customers to improve their productivity, reduce their operating costs and reduce risk in their businesses. They are increasingly using technology to do this and as a way of differentiating their proposition in a sector that is often seen as reluctant to change.
