Q3 2021

52 BUILD Q3 2021 Top Equipment Hire Launched in 2018 by directors Richard Hayward and Tony Cross, ME Hire UK has quickly become established as one of the UK’s leading mechanical and electrical hirers. Its aim is to provide the best products, on time at competitive rates, and to work closely with its customers to build excellent working relationships for many years to come. Recognised by BUILD magazine as Most Outstanding for Mechanical and Electrical Plant Hire 2021 – UK, we take a closer look at the company. E Hire’s core business is based around it being able to supply a full range of mechanical and electrical equipment from the world’s best manufacturers. It has many partnerships with many of the leading manufacturers, allowing it to offer the best and latest equipment available for next day delivery from its modern depot close to London City Airport. A large modern fleet of mechanical, access, site security, lifting and handling equipment is distributed from ME Hire’s Docklands premises throughout London and the South East. And the company’s recent expansion has seen it double the size of its premises and add a brand-new LPAF approved training facility, providing customers with a true one-stop-shop. In addition to this, ME Hire is investing in staff, technology and equipment on an ongoing basis, which has resulted in the company being awarded Service Partner status with several leading manufacturers, enabling it to be able to supply and service a vast range of the most up-to-date equipment. This is combined with the many years of industry experience of the individuals who work within the company; its directors and staff who bring excellent levels of customer service and product support, and its experienced drivers and qualified technicians who complete the picture. Speaking about their experience of dealing with ME Hire, one customer said, “ME Hire is a company that treats its customers properly. When hiring from this company, the staff engage with you as a person and always try their hardest to exceed expectations. I highly recommend this company over any of the larger competitors, who treat you as a pound note and an annoyance to their day. A pleasure to do business with you, ME Hire.” All of ME Hire’s staff play a key role in enabling the company to provide customers with the service they require, along with inhouse and independent training on equipment. Nearly all staff have worked at the company since it began only two and a half years ago, making the working environment enjoyable for all involved. The team is lead by company directors, Richard and Tony, who have both enjoyed long careers within the mechanical and M Jun21330 electrical supply industry and have over 50 years’ experience between them. That’s not to say they haven’t had their challenges, though. Due to COVID-19, Richard and Tony have recently been put to the test on their business resources and ability to adapt under pressure due to staffing issues. However, the company managed to remain fully operational and maintain support for all of its customers’ needs throughout the pandemic, showing its resilience and dedication to its work, staff, customers and industry. The company is now looking ahead towards a bright future. It plans to continue to invest heavily in new equipment and to add to and develop its team so it can consistently provide its customers with the outstanding service they require and deserve.
