By Thomas Allen25 November 2019
Kennards Hire has expanded into Kalgoorlie, western Australia, with the opening of a new depot.
With a focus on serving mining and resource projects in the region, the 4,300m2 depot will hold niche equipment to meet the growing demand for specialised machines in the area.
The branch will also stock a range of tools and equipment to support other groups such as local trades, and commercial and residential construction.
The depot’s equipment is fitted with cloud-based and Bluetooth tracking technology to give easy access to real-time data that can help with preventative maintenance and monitoring efficiency.
Also available are spare parts, personal protective equipment and consumables.
Hugh McKenzie, Branch Manager, said, “It’s great to be operational in the Kalgoorlie-Boulder region. We’ve got a lot to offer customers and the local community. There’s plenty of opportunity and growth in the region.”
The branch is located just off the Great Eastern Highway in West Kalgoorlie and is open six days a week.
Family-run Kennards Hire has more than 180 depots across Australia and New Zealand. The company ranked 48th in this year’s IRN100 league table of the largest rental companies in the world, achieving revenues of €239 million in 2018.
