Paul Kuebler, Premier Plant Hire
Standing for Election to the HAE Tools and Equipment Board 2020
Premier Plant Hire in London was a small local Tool Hire business when I acquired it in 2006.
Tool & Plant Hire is essentially a logistics business - we provide the correct piece of equipment at the right moment to the right place and return it to our depots at the end of the hire, typically at short notice.
The skills I developed whilst working for DHL Solutions (I was VP for their Healthcare Logistics Business) and as the MD for a family owned warehousing and distribution business in Benelux helped me to expand Premier Plant Hire during the last 14 years. We are proud of our fleet of 40+ mini excavators, a fleet of 12 vehicles and an innovative strategy, focussing on clients who work in tight spaces (e.g. basements), which led us to create niche products such as modular conveyors and emission control equipment for small diesel plant.
The focus on small diesel plant led to the creation of our second business - BISAF Ltd. - which represents Johnson Matthey's NRMM department – we make large construction machinery compliant with Clean Air Regulations (e.g. London's CAZ) specifying and installing JM's DPFs. Our R&D department created BISAF's own Diesel Particulate Filter, the PARTICULATOR®, which we manufacture and sell to construction and hire companies.
HAE is a trade organisation that has blossomed during the last years as a result of its strife to make our industry more professional and credible. I would like to show my support by working with HAE's other board members for the common good and I would embrace being elected to serve on its board.
