Kennards Hire has expanded south with the acquisition of South Australian-based A1 Hire.
This will be the family-owned and operated business’ southern most site, based in Victor Harbor.
It will also be Kennards’ 17th branch in South Australia.
“Kennards Hire is excited to be expanding its network in South Australia,” Kennards Hire South Australia General Manager Gareth Vines said.
“We’ve opened a number of new branches across the network in recent months, however this is our first new branch in South Australia for a while.
“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 will add a number of offerings to the A1 Hire site. This includes concrete care, Access, and a larger range of earthmoving equipment to support DIYers and tradies.
Kennards will retain A1 staff members Shane Carter, Peter Hart, Linas Leonavicius, and Rob Hale to work with Kennards Hire Branch Manager Vince Gerada.
“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 said.
