Kennards Hire expands into Toowoomba

Family-owned and operated equipment hire company, Kennards Hire, is branching out and expanding into Toowoomba, bringing the network in the Sunshine State to 30 branches.

With the opening of the new 2600sqm location in the iconic GrainCorp shed, Kennards Hire is positioned to deliver big things in the growing economic hub of south east Queensland.

Toowoomba, Australia’s largest inland city has long been home to industries as diverse as agriculture, construction and mining, and Kennards Hire’s newest branch offers an extensive range of equipment suited to all of these specialty areas and more.

Whether its specialist equipment like boom lifts, hybrid light towers, power generators, forklift cages or ride on floor scrubbers for the construction professional or a floor sander or wallpaper steamer for the weekend DIYer, Kennards Hire Toowoomba has it all!

Kennards Hire Area Manager, Jamie Bach, is excited to bring much-needed tools and specialty equipment to the company’s newest branch: the most westerly in Queensland.

“Our team is looking forward to supporting the locals with all their hire needs, assisting tradies, building crews and DIYers with essential equipment and being part of the community in Toowoomba,” said Jamie.

Built inside the iconic GrainCorp shed at the end of the 11 grain silos, the branch offers a unique drive-through experience. Kennards Hire’s innovative branch design allows you to literally drive through, digitally sign the hire schedule on a tablet and be out the other side within minutes, loaded up with the gear you need.

Leading the team at Toowoomba is Branch Manager Luke Wolff:

“It’s such a great opportunity for us to bring Kennards Hire’s practical and reliable service to the people of Toowoomba. With so much growth in the region and projects such as the boom in resource production and the Inland Rail construction taking place, our new Toowoomba Branch, only two hours west of Brisbane, offers convenience to local industries.”

Joining Luke at Kennards Hire Toowoomba is Michael Fahey, Sam Tonkin, Jason Tredinneck and Ryan Heusser. Together, the team has nearly 40 years of combined experience in the equipment hire industry. So when it comes to finding the right tools for the job, Toowoomba locals are definitely in safe hands.
