Kennards Hire acquires A1 Hire
Kennards Hire has acquired A1 Hire, stepping into the South Australian southern region in Victor Harbor.
The most southern branch of the South Australian network, Victor Harbour is the business’ 17th branch which will introduce concrete care, Access and a larger range of earthmoving equipment to support DIYers, tradies and large projects alike.
“Kennards Hire is excited to be expanding its network in South Australia. As our most southernmost branch, it will enable us to broaden our hire equipment range and service to even more customers in the region,” Kennards Hire South Australia general manager Gareth Vines says.
“It’s important to us that we can give back and continue supporting the communities where our people live and work. As a family-owned business, we know the local expertise of A1 Hire’s employees is invaluable in fostering ongoing relationships with our customers, current and new.”
Gareth says he welcomes the existing A1 Hire staff members Shane Carter, Peter Hart, Linas Leonavicius and Rob Hale to the Kennards Hire family under branch manager Vince Gerada to continue the hire legacy already cemented in place in Victor Harbor.
The Victor Harbor opening follows the recent announcement of Kennards Hire’s 200th branch opening in Morwell and 201st in Ballarat, Victoria. Selected pieces of A1 Hire equipment and memorabilia will be sent to Sydney and housed in the Kennards Hire Museum.
