HSS Hire, the UK’s award-winning tool and equipment hire company, has secured a 5 year, multi-million pound contract for the hire of tools and equipment to Thames Water.

The agreement will see HSS supply any contractors working on Thames Water projects throughout the region from their extensive range of small tools and equipment as well as safety & survey equipment and health & safety training.

It’s the latest in a series of big contract wins for HSS based on their its innovative ‘through the line’ approach which sees it supply all contractors working on behalf of the end-customer. Acting as a supply base for any of the equipment requirements at all Thames Water projects, HSS will offer one point of contact and a 24 hour service to any onsite contractors for the provision of reliable, safety-compliant tools and equipment at centrally pre-agreed, competitive rates. This will not only ensure consistently low costs and encourage a level playing field for those contractors but will also guarantee HSS’ rigorous service levels throughout all areas of the supply chain.

Thames Water will also be using HSS’ revolutionary online business management system, ‘HSS LiveHire’, which will provide them and their contractors with unprecedented transparency and control over their equipment hire portfolio.

Announcing the contract, HSS Chief Executive Chris Davies, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Thames Water on this exciting new agreement. We believe firmly in helping our customers to save time and money and this new collaborative partnership model is a pioneering approach that will do just that by promoting price transparency and operational efficiency. It will also encourage the cross-hire of equipment between contractors which will help reduce both any potential downtime and the environmental impact of multiple deliveries to site.”
