Hireco, the Northern Ireland based company which provides a full rental, leasing and 24/7 breakdown service for trucks and trailers across the UK and Ireland is delighted to announce an investment of £500k in securing the purchase of 20 GRP box vans from leading trailer manufacturer Krone.
Set up 30 years ago, Hireco now employs over 100 people across the UK and Ireland, with depots in London, Manchester, Reading, Belfast and Dublin and has more than 5,000 vehicles on the road across the UK and Ireland.
This deal underlines Hireco’s commitment to investment in fleet having spent £25m last year and £20m so far this year.
“Our customers need the assurance of high security and secure loading when conducting logistical tasks,” said commercial director Tony Wan was keen to highlight his reasons for choosing Krone trailers in this investment;
“Krone’s dry liners have a unique door locking mechanism which guarantees against break ins and owing to the trailers’ inherent strength, they can also cope with form-fitted loads without the need to strap.”
In addition, he said the principle of buying quality equipment created dividends long term;
“Flexibility is key to a good rental trailer and in this regard, the Dry Liners tick the box. Our customers will be delighted to be able to avail of Krone trailers as our business grows and invests in the future.”
Hireco rents trucks and trailers to industry leading transport and logistics companies including Wincanton and DHL, as well as Norbert Dentressangle and Asda. It also provides transport companies with long term fixed price servicing and breakdown cover from its 24/7 service centre located in Belfast.
Established in Dublin, Hireco now has seven outlets throughout the UK and Ireland supplying premium equipment for contract hire and rental. Hireco has grown by redefining articulated rental, providing high quality equipment while introducing pioneering concepts in customer service.
