News Item: Balloo Hire Centres Awarded IPAF Rental+ Gold Standard

Balloo Hire Centres has successfully passed their recent IPAF Rental+ audit for powered access and has been rewarded with the highest quality mark possible, the IPAF Rental+ 'Gold Standard'. Only an elite group of other companies within the UK have this accreditation with Balloo Hire being the only IPAF member to hold ‘Gold Standard’ on the island of Ireland.

The IPAF Rental+ audit scheme is designed to give the management a tool to signpost where and how their business can improve its health and safety, quality and environmental performance. It also adds recognised value to powered access businesses and reduces time and cost spent completing pre-qualifying questionnaires on supplier forms and tenders.

Achieving the ‘Gold Standard’ means Balloo Hire Centres have displayed extremely high standards and are recognised by IPAF as a company who provides significant investment in going above and beyond the minimum standard in the powered access industry.

Mark Grundy, General Manager at Balloo Hire Centres commented on the amazing achievement: "We were already a Silver IPAF Rental+ member, to now have the Gold Standard from IPAF is a testament to the time, hard work and training our staff have put in to raise our standard enabling us to be one of the elite hire companies in the industry."
