Equipment rental specialist Hiretech Limited is investing over £1 million in additional equipment this year to meet industry demand.
The firm has seen a dramatic upturn in business since mid 2017 and is celebrating another record breaking month by taking delivery of a new Zone 2 Well Service Pump. The unit, which was contracted to Prior Diesel in Great Yarmouth to package, will complement the existing rental fleet of pumping spreads, powered umbilical reels, hydraulic power packs and supporting equipment.
John Milne, Engineering Manager at Hiretech, comments, “There are some great opportunities in the market at the moment as the industry plays catch up for lower investment levels through the downturn. Additions made to our rental fleet over the last three years are reaping rewards now, and we asked Prior Diesel to augment our own manufacturing capacity this year to help meet increasing demand.”
Hiretech has also recently entered the Offshore Personnel Supply market, offering personnel to operate the range of rental equipment it has available. Six new jobs have been created at the company’s base at Fintray near Dyce, with another four jobs expected to be created before the year end.
