Late September, as NSW was in the midst of its longest lockdown yet, Kennards Hire quietly set up shop in Lismore, building upon its regional presence across its booming New South Wales network.
With regional NSW becoming more popular for those looking for a tree-change, Lismore is primed to become a thriving cultural and community city. Situated in the Northern Rivers Area, the new Kennards Hire branch is going to help local tradies and DIYers with their projects of all shapes and sizes.
The North Coast Area Manager, Jim Green, said, “Kennards Hire is committed to offering great service with an extensive range of products and equipment. We are excited to be able to offer the people of Lismore the best quality service available.”
Jim has worked in the hire industry for almost 30 years. Starting out working for his father’s hire business, which he eventually took over, his business was acquired by Kennards Hire in 2009 and he has now been with the team for 13 years.
Jim’s story is much like Jordan Tomkins who is the son of the owners of the hire company that previously occupied the branch location. Jordan will continue to represent his family and their history in hire by continuing to grow his career in the industry at the new Kennards Hire branch.
“It’s a great industry, we are lucky to keep Jordan on with us, he is passionate about hire and keen to develop there is a lot ahead of him here at Kennards Hire. There will be lots of career growth opportunities for him within the business,” shared Jim.
Alongside Jim and Jordan, newcomer Luke Collier is also set to help run the branch. The team are excited to continue to hire more Lismore locals to help meet the needs of the growing infrastructure industry, tradies and DIY’ers in the region. The team are also eager to start building relationships with the local community and are currently on the lookout for a community or sporting group to support as an extension of Kennards Hire’s family values.
“As a family-owned business, it’s important to us that we give back and continue supporting the communities where our people live and work," Jim said.
With an extensive product range, expert advice and contactless service and delivery you can count on the Lismore team for whatever, whenever, wherever the job.
The new branch, which brings Kennards Hire to 60 branches across NSW, is equipped with a full range of hire equipment including large access hire such as, earthmoving, lifting, site, landscaping, and general hire equipment to help support local industry, construction and DIYers.
The new branch is conveniently located at 10 Lancaster Drive, Goonellabah NSW 2480.
