Kennards Hire announces the acquisition of The Hire Guys in Joondalup, taking another step towards growing the business in Western Australia. The Joondalup branch is Kennards Hire’s thirteenth operation in Western Australia.

Kennards Hire and The Hire Guys have come to an agreement and the changeover will officially take place on February 3, 2014.

Kennards Hire has been targeting the Joondalup suburb located in Perth’s west for many years. The new branch, which represents an important milestone for the family-owned equipment hire company, will continue to operate out of the existing site at 3 Winton Street, Joondalup. 

Steve Burnell from The Hire Guys has been involved in the hire industry for over 20 years and has co-owned the business with his wife, Paula for 15 years.

Western Australia Kennards Hire General Manager Tony Symons assures customers that the professional Kennards Hire service and range of equipment will be available from day one. All local DIY-ers and tradesmen can expect the new Kennards Hire branch to be fully operational come February 3rd, 2014.

The Hire Guys are a group of four individual operators who all trade under the same name and operate with a range of products very similar to Kennards Hire. All staff will move across to Kennards Hire, and all the regular Kennards Hire equipment and machinery will be ready for hire at the existing premises.

Rob Mammoliti, the current Branch Manager at Malaga will take up a mentoring role to assist in the changeover at Joondalup.
