    Kennards Hire Opens “Super” Branch in Hornby

    Published on 17 May 2018, Thursday, 6:13 PM

    Kennards Hire is celebrating the opening of its Hornby Branch after the recent acquisition of both Johnsons Hire and Stella Hire in Christchurch. As two branches merge into one, the Hornby “Super” Branch will serve as the base of operations for traffic and pump and power, specialist equipment, while continuing to provide high-quality general equipment for projects of all sizes.

    With 20 branches now open across New Zealand, Kennards Hire continues to expand and meet the increasing demands of customers – including DIYers. The Parkhouse Road site in Wigram is one of four exciting new locations for the family owned and operated hire equipment business — other recent Kennards Hire branch openings included Ashburton, Queenstown and Invercargill.

    Branch Manager, Dan Manning, is delighted with this opportunity to lead the team at Kennards Hire Hornby in this recently opened “Super” Branch.

    “We are really excited about our new location on Parkhouse Road, the much larger branch will now allow us to provide a greater offering for our customers, allowing them to complete any job big to small,” Dan said.

    “The great thing is we’ve got some terrific people who have joined the Kennards Hire family from the recent acquisitions.  We’re all keen to get involved in the local community and can’t wait help out our customers with any projects they’re working on.”

    As a group of equipment hire specialists with over 20 years of combined experience, customers can expect the same level of expertise and excellent customer service found across all branches in the Kennards Hire network here at the new Hornby Branch.

    DIY enthusiasts, tradies and big-project managers alike can visit the Kennards Hire Hornby Branch at 2 Parkhouse Road, Wigram, Christchurch 8042. With opening hours between 7:00AM - 5:00PM on weekdays, 7:30AM - 5:00PM on Saturdays and 8:00AM - 4:00PM on Sundays, finding the right tools for the job is now conveniently located in one location, any day of the week.
