Kennards Hire has boosted its test and measurement operations with the opening of its first fully operational calibration laboratory. Located at the company’s new and improved East Brisbane facility, the hub branch has a team of three dedicated employees and is built on just 150m2 of space, sharing the site with the company’s general hire branch.

The East Brisbane location was actually the first Kennards Hire Test & Measure to open in 2015, and so it is only fitting for this to be the first to feature a fully operational calibration laboratory. The lab is temperature-, pressure- and dust-controlled, and is equipped with state-of-the-art calibration instruments.

Kennards Hire’s range of instrumentation and equipment caters for electrical, data and communications, plumbing, civil and utilities, HVAC, environmental and occupational hygiene, mining and oil and gas, and general industrial applications.

According to Kennards Hire Environmental Specialist, Chris Lynch: “It’s vital to have a facility that allows us to help our customers promptly whilst supplying a high quality product that produces reliable results.

“The new lab is temperature and dust controlled to test and store various water quality analysis instruments. It features a serviceable ‘well’ pump testing rig to clean, leak test and pressure test the pumps. Not to mention, the lab also has a revolutionary intrinsically safe fume hood to extract any hazardous gases when testing and calibrating gas analysis instruments such as PID's, landfill, confined space and methane gas analysers.”

Leo De Sousa, Product Manager of Test & Measure, adds: “Innovation is the vanguard of business development and customer service here at Kennards Hire, and we’re very excited to have this brand new lab to test and calibrate instrumentation equipment that aid our environmental and occupational hygiene product range.

“Being the first of its kind for our entire branch network and the Australian equipment hire industry, we’ve now got the in-house ability to keep our range of highly technical instruments accurate to industry standards and compliance, meaning better services and more precise results to make our customers’ jobs easy.”
