About HAE

Hire Association Europe (HAE) was formed in 1974 and often referred to as The Association by its members.  HAE is a Birmingham-based industry-leading trade body representing plant, tool and equipment hire with a membership base of 900 members based in the UK, Europe and across other parts of the world.

HAE assists businesses, from sole traders to larger independent and privately owned organisations, by providing operational resources to support the hire industry.  Membership provides access to products and services covering all aspects of hire, including terms & conditions, safety checks, publicity, equipment, responsibilities and general day-to-day requirements. Accompanying services include legal advice, training, publicity, safety checks, leaflets, lobbying and finance advice; necessary documentation and information that will hold organisations in better stead for the long term. In addition, safeguarding can also be made easier for members, who have access to HAE’s essential range of health & safety, economical and credit control services.

All members are invited to become part of a board with the choice of Tool, Plant & Equipment Board, Event Equipment Board or the Supply Chain Industry Board.  Alternatively, members are able to take part in a technical panel to review and develop new practices which impact the industry and subsequently, their own business.
