Australian rental company Kennards Hire has acquired family-run rental business Hire It Plant Hire, based in Doncaster, Victoria.

The companies said an expanded range of equipment would be offered from the outlet, with all customer accounts transferred to Kennards Hire. The Doncaster branch will be Kennards Hire’s 26th branch in Victoria.

Hire It Plant Hire’s Mike and Lesley Gaffney and Rodger Knights issued a joint statement: “We and all the staff would like to thank our customers for their loyal support over many years and commend Kennards Hire, also a family business, to you for their excellence in customer service and equipment.

"After many years of providing community and customer service through Hire It, the time has come to pursue some personal interests.”
