We’ve made equipment hiring easy! Open your account today. Get Started

Yes, you read that right, 40 years! We haven’t been short of things to celebrate here at Allen Hire over the past few weeks. Holding a series of events including an open day for customers, a visit from Tees Valley Mayor, and a significant investment in new hire equipment and staff.

We have invested tens of thousands of pounds in new hire items, including access equipment, construction hand tools, excavators, and welders. We have also sought out some of the most up to date ‘green’ equipment to help customers achieve their sustainability goals.

On top of this, we have invested in new additions to our fleet of delivery vehicles and have recruited four new members of staff, with more plans to expand the team further in coming months.

On Wednesday 27th September, we held a celebratory event to allow our customers to network and meet senior members of our team at the main depot (Bowesfield Industrial Estate). Our guests also had the opportunity to meet some of our companies’ key suppliers who were showcasing their latest top of the range equipment, including Shindaiwa, Snorkel and Kubota. Boasting a long list of loyal customers, mostly based in the North-East, many of which attended the drop-in event. They included WOODSmith Construction Group and Texo.

Gary Wood, COO of the SDDE Smith Group and MD of WOODSmith Construction Group, said: ‘’We’ve been a regular customer of Allen Hire since we formed in 2021 and we were delighted to attend their birthday open event to celebrate with them. Allen Hire continues to provide an efficient and cost-effective service, and the day proved particularly informative as we were able to learn more about some of the great new equipment they’ve added to their offering.’’

Then, on Friday 29th September, we saw Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen pay us a visit to show his support! Mr Houchen spent time with our Managing Director, Gerry Carruth, to learn more about his plans to continue to significantly grow the business and strengthen our presence in the market.

Our Managing Director then said, ‘’It was important for us to mark this big anniversary by bringing together some of our most loyal customers and we’re delighted that Ben Houchen was also able to celebrate with us. We have exciting and ambitious plans for the business over the next couple of years which I was keen to share with the mayor to gain his support. Our team has grown significantly, and we remain committed to supporting the local community by providing more jobs in the near future, as we continue to expand.’’

He then went on to say, ‘’We will also continue to heavily invest in new products each month to ensure our customers have access to the best and most up to date equipment. This is an important year for us, and we look forward to continuing to provide the highest possible level of service to our customers.’’

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said, ‘’Here in Teeside there us no shortage of construction opportunities both big and small for local firms to get involved in, so it’s fantastic to see Allen Hire growing to meet the demand of new projects taking off.’’

“With spades in the ground across the region, it’s vitally important that our brilliant local businesses get a look in, and I have no doubt that Allen Hire’s reputation for first-class service will go far in serving new investors coming here.”

We hope you are as excited as we are to see what plans we have for the future, big things are coming!
