HSS Hire, the nationwide award-winning tool and equipment hire company, has opened a HSS Hire Waterford branch at 6 Cross Roads Business Park, offering ease of access, more choice and larger equipment to the South-East market.
HSS Hire Waterford – A decade in the making
HSS Hire Group Managing Director, Michael Killeen says they are delighted finally to begin operating in Waterford, a move which has been in the pipeline for a decade.
“We originally looked at opening in Waterford around 10 years ago, but we held back with the recession. Now is the right time to go for it. We have a big customer base that moves around the country and does a lot of work in Waterford.
“Adding to the HSS Hire and Laois Hire Group’s already established network of 26 hire branches and super centres across Ireland and Northern Ireland, the increased footprint will result in a number of new jobs,” confirms Michael Killeen.
Opportunities in Waterford
“Waterford is really up and coming. There’s more activity here, and we see a lot of development happening in the city in the next few years.”
HSS Hire Waterford Branch Manager Patrick Cunningham, who is well experienced in the industry, is delighted with the progress made so far. “We have already won some good local contracts, and there is great potential to grow the business even further in this part of the country. We are looking forward to a long and successful future here.”
