Rental company Kennards Hire has continued its expansion in New Zealand with the acquisition of the three branch network of City Hire in Christchurch.

Kennards Hire has existing rental branches in Auckland and Wellington, and said this move represented its first expansion into Christchurch.

The City hire locations are in Papanui in Christchurch’s North, Hornby in the South and in Christchurch’s central business district.

Kennards Hire New Zealand general manager Tom Kinross said, “All local DIYers and trades people can expect the three new Kennards Hire branches to be in full operation with an even wider range of quality tools and equipment. Kennards Hire is a family business, so we treat our customers like family.”
