Kennards expands in New Zealand

By Euan Youdale31 October 2016

Kennards Hire has expanded its branch network in New Zealand to 17 with the acquisition of Tauranga Hire.

The equipment and tool hire company now has almost 170 branches across New Zealand and Australia, with Tauranga opening as Kennards Hire today, following the launch of the Hamilton branch in August.

Tom Kimber, general manager of Kennards Hire New Zealand said, “Being the largest city in the Bay of Plenty, Tauranga is an exciting step for our network of hire equipment branches. By extending our footprint into Hamilton’s neighbouring region, we are well-situated to help make our customers job easy.”

“Infrastructure projects, housing and commercial construction are all projected to see strong growth over the next few years. This is a great opportunity for us to invest in and grow our brand and equipment hire service offering in one of the fastest growing population areas in New Zealand,” added Mr Kimber.

The existing Tauranga Hire team, led by Kris Wright, will remain in place. New Zealand customers can also take advantage of the Kennards website which allows hired equipment to be picked up at their local branch or have it delivered direct to their door.
