About Us

We are a market leading provider of tools, equipment, and support services to a huge range of industries across the UK and Ireland, all powered by the latest technology.

We can supply over 9,000 bits of equipment, from industrial generators and cranes, right down to carpet cleaners and floor sanders, and everything in between.

We also supply everything our customers need to get the most out of the equipment they hire from us, whether that’s fuel, training courses for their colleagues, or consumables like sandpaper. Whatever they need to get the job done, we can provide it.

Who we are

We are the UK’s original tool and equipment hire company, and we’ve come a long way since we were founded in 1957. We are incredibly proud of our journey so far, and our ability to support and service our customer’s needs – whatever they may be.  Whether it’s one off small tool hires, or specialist site solutions and bespoke support services, we can help everyone get the job done safely.

We’re really proud of how far we’ve come, and we’re not done yet. These are just some of our tech tools, and they’re getting better all the time.
