Passionate Hirer Awards 2022 Winners

The 2022 Passionate Hirer Awards were presented by Executive Hire Publishing & Event Director, Chris Moore, at the famous evening party at the Executive Hire Show.

As before, a shortlist of four hirers was distilled from hundreds of depots in the UK and Ireland – all thoroughly researched and personally visited as part of the ‘National Visitor Campaign’.

The four finalists were divided into two categories – ‘Outstanding Single Depot Hire Company’ and ‘Outstanding Multi-Depot Hire Company’. All were seen by our independent judges and scrutinised in a range of criteria, including presentation and welcome, staff knowledge and enthusiasm, efficiency in handling orders and enquiries, cleanliness and quality of fleet, marketing and outreach activities, and notable innovations.

The Winner in the Outstanding Single Depot Hire Company category was Clements Plant & Access Hire of Coventry, which impressed our judges with its broad range of well-maintained equipment. Of particular interest was the way that Clements keeps track of its fleet. Having tailored Syrinx software to suit its needs, Clements then uses a network of monitors, which all employees can access, and a colour-coding system to denote a machine’s precise status.

The Clements depot is located a little way off the main road, although it is well signposted. The business occupies a much larger space than might be imagined, yet the company is already refurbishing an adjacent warehouse for further expansion. Meanwhile, Clements continues to update its fleet, and we eagerly await news of further developments.  

Beaver Tool Hire has six depots in and around the south coast. The company has been shortlisted in the Outstanding Multi-Depot Hire Company category before, which already says a great deal about the firm. However, the recent implementation of a slick HR system has not only helped to foster a more inclusive spirit within the company, it was the tipping point which meant that Beaver finally won the coveted award.

Beaver’s Chichester HQ enjoys a prominent and well-branded position on a main arterial road. Other depots visited during the judging process were certainly kept to a similarly high standard, with immaculate product displays and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Customers are certainly well catered for and likewise looked after, meaning that Beaver Tool Hire was an easy choice for our independent judges.
