NSW equipment hire specialist Hire Express has chosen Enerpac tools to comprehensively stock the hydraulic lifting and bolting sections of its business.
Blacktown-based Hire Express is a relatively new player in the industry and differentiates itself in the hire market by providing full technical and compliance data for its equipment online, accessible via QR codes on the equipment. The data include service histories, risk assessments, operator manuals, registration and insurance.
Hire Express Managing Director Allen Besseling has more than 30 years’ experience in the hire industry, including three years as CEO of a long-established national hire company. When it came to hydraulic lifting cylinders and bolting tools for his new business, he immediately thought of Enerpac.
“Enerpac is a strong and trusted company with a history of safe, high-quality products, backed by a reliable brand and strong traceability of product. I’ve had a long association with Enerpac and have always been impressed by their products and quality customer service,” says Besseling.
“In our industry, the word cylinder is practically synonymous with Enerpac. Companies that make smaller components, accessories and parts often design them specifically for use with Enerpac tools, as these are the benchmarks of safety and reliability,” he adds.
To date, Hire Express has used Enerpac tools on projects as diverse as bridge extension and mine-site cable termination, as well as simpler lifting and bolting tasks.
“Another major advantage is Enerpac’s comprehensive range. They have cylinders for lifting hundreds of kilos, right up to a thousand tonnes, as well as bolting tools for every task,” says Besseling.
