THE Preparation Group, specialists in surface preparation, removal and finishing, has achieved ‘Hire Industry Trusted Supplier’ status or HITS, the hallmark of quality, competence and safety across the UK hire industry.
It is currently one of only two companies to be both HITS accredited for supply to the Plant Hire Sector and be SafeHire certified, for customers hiring equipment direct.
The Hire Association Europe’s Supply Chain Board created HITS as an extra layer of reassurance for businesses purchasing services, that their chosen supply chain partner is fully committed to maintaining the very best practices and that its suitability as a supplier is recognised.
Kate Walshaw, The Preparation Group’s Hire Group Manager, said: "In gaining HITS, we have demonstrated our commitment to a high standard of hire operations and that we deliver across key areas of training, safety, environmental policy, R&D, production processes and data security.
"Hire customers can be assured that we run a professional service when supplying our grinders, planers, shotblasters, STG’s, hand tools and vacuums, with an emphasis on delivering full customer satisfaction.
"Having both HITS and the SafeHire Certification means that we are in a unique position and customers can be doubly assured that we are a reliable partner for hire of surface preparation, removal and finishing equipment and tools."
