Commenting on this year’s shortlist, HAE EHA’s managing director, Graham Arundell said: “We’re delighted with the calibre of the companies who have made the shortlist for the Hire Awards of Excellence 2017. There is a fantastic mix of major players alongside smaller, independent hirers so it is a good cross section of the hire and industry. The standard of entries was very high so the judges had their work cut out just to get the shortlist, never mind deciding on the winners.
