Kennards Hire joins the Westgate community with a purpose-built 2600sq m branch


Westgate is home to one of New Zealand’s biggest town developments, and now also home to Kennards Hire’s newest branch, bringing the New Zealand network to 25 branches.

Located north-west of Auckland in a bustling hive of activity, the family-owned and operated business is meeting demands of the growing region, bringing much-needed equipment to current construction projects and the locals of Westgate.

Auckland’s $200 million Westgate Town Centre development will see the regional town transformed into a hub for retail and commercial activity in the north-west.

Along with an up and coming industrial area laced with a heap of residential infrastructure, it’s safe to say Westgate is a quickly developing town that will become a very busy and lively centre of activity.

Kennards Hire Westgate sits on a 2600sq m site, with the purpose-built branch offering an extensive range of equipment, including a vast variety of the latest cordless, battery-powered tools from STIHL, Hilti, Makita and Milwaukee.

North Auckland area manager Nigel Annear says with the north-west region of Auckland projected to be home to around 186,000 people by 2050, about 40,000 new homes are starting to be built, and several transport projects are underway.”

“As a family-owned and operated business, it’s an exciting opportunity for Kennards Hire to be a part of the growth in Westgate. We look forward to helping service developments to better the community and provide homes to the families of Westgate,” Mr Annear says.

Kennards Hire Westgate will be led by branch manager Drikus van der Hoven. Joining him at the new branch will be assistant branch manager Mitchell Carter, service person driver Hux Roni, and small engine mechanic RG Constantino.

With more than 20 years’ combined experience, the team at Kennards Hire Westgate has a wealth of knowledge, so finding the right tools for the job has never been easier.
