After more than a decade of serving customers, Australian rental company Kennards Hire Lift & Shift is moving from its location in Richmond, Melbourne, to larger premises in the nearby suburb of Abbotsford. The new branch is already open for business.

Andrew Lambert, general manager of Kennards Hire Lift & Shift said that at approximately 1,260 sq metres, the Abbotsford branch is almost double the size of the previous site and will allow for future growth plans of the business to be implemented.

“The move has been in the planning for 12 months,” said Mr Lambert.

“Securing the ideal site in a central location and with an area large enough to accommodate expansion were critical factors.

“The new location enables us to better serve the growing needs of our customers in the Melbourne metropolitan area and surrounding suburbs.

“It also allows for the addition of new, larger equipment and will play a central and multi-faceted role in providing customers with an extensive range of material handling solutions for hire across a variety of industry sectors.”

The growing range of Kennards Hire Lift & Shift products extends from hydraulic equipment such as porta power rams up to 600 t and the Durapac Syncmaster Hydraulic Jacking System, to torque wrenches up to 35,000 Nm, and 15 t and 30 t air skates.

The company has nine branches throughout Australia.
