Australian rental company Kennards Hire is continuing to expand into New Zealand with the opening of two specialist branches, Concrete Care and Lift & Shift, at its general hire depot in East Tamaki, Auckland.

The family-owned business first entered the New Zealand market at the end of 2012 with the acquisition of McEntee Hire. Its two new specialist branches will service industrial and trade sectors with a range of equipment and expertise.

Lift & Shift offers equipment to help move heavy loads, access tight spaces, manoeuvre bulky goods, and shift high volumes of material.

Concrete Care is a specialist business that caters to surface preparation jobs and also provides equipment and service for concrete cutting and sawing, drilling, surface cleaning, concrete placement, demolitions, and diamond products.

While the specialist Concrete Care and Lift & Shift equipment has only been introduced to the general hire branch at East Tamaki, the increasing demand for specialist equipment in Australia suggests the network will continue to grow through New Zealand with stand-alone branches servicing new areas and industries.

The Kennards Hire specialist network in Australia also includes Traffic, Rail, Pump & Power, and Test & Measure.
