A new hire company specialising in materials handling equipment has been set up as an off-shoot of the general equipment rental firm, Kennards Hire.

Called Kennards Lift & Shift, it has a large range equipment, including many new and exclusive items for lifting, carrying and pulling. “Whether it’s carrying a one tonne load up stairs, lifting a 60t load with only 5mm to get the jack under, or lifting material up a 100, shaft, we have the answer,” says Allen Besseling, who heads the new company. “We have put together a team which has a great deal of experience in materials handling and is keen to offer help and advice.”
