Phoenix Hire & Sales are the largest independent hire company in Wales, employing over 80 people across six branches. Established for 12 years the company has seen rapid growth of its plant hire offer and significant expansion of its plant sales business which includes Yanmar, Amman and Stihl.
Phoenix Hire & Sales Director Jason Derraven commenting on the new deal with Thwaites said, "First and foremost we are really pleased to become part of the Thwaites family. The product and brand are recognised across the market for their quality, reliability, and durability. These are values Phoenix Hire and Sales share and values the business continues to be driven by. We very much look forward, as the market recovers, to widening our offer and supporting further, contractors across West South Wales, in these challenging times."
Thwaites General Sales Manager Andy Sabin said "We are operating in unprecedented times, with unique challenges, however we remain positive about the industry's ability to recover. It is essential therefore to ensure the Thwaites network is complete and robust. We have been most impressed by the enthusiasm and energy Phoenix Hire and Sales have shown ahead of this announcement. We look forward to supporting the business and its customers with the best dumpers on the market, for many years to come".
Thwaites, in line with the Government's essential service plan, returned to manufacturing on May 4th. Thus ensuring continuity of supply through its 13 strong UK distribution channel as the phased return to work of hire companies, contractors and housebuilders begins, all with the objective to get Britain Building.
