Kennards Hire has acquired Power Distribution Rentals (PDR), a Sydney-based specialist temporary power rental business with a strong reputation for supplying generators, switchboards and cables along with installation and expert advice for more than 15 years. This has included designing and deploying temporary power and electrical solutions for events such as Groovin’ in the Moo, New Year’s Eve Sydney, VIVID and the Perth Fringe Festival.
The acquisition will enable Kennards Hire to offer a more comprehensive and complete solution Australia wide. According to Kennards Hire CEO Angus Kennard, “PDR have a great reputation in the film and event market. We look forward to growing this business and adding the scale and complementary assets that Kennards Hire brings.
“We are delighted that PDR founder, Kevin Joy, will stay on to oversee operations and continue to look after the relationships he’s built since starting the business. PDR will continue to operate under their current brand and source their rental products from trusted suppliers.”
PDR will continue to trade under its current brand for the foreseeable future.
