We supply construction equipment, replacement parts and workshop services to many of the UK’s national plant hirers, as well as many smaller operators, so it is fantastic to be recognised as the exemplary supplier in the industry.”
At the awards ceremony, Graham Arundell, Managing Director of HAE said that there was a record number of entries for the awards this year. The awards presentation was hosted by well-known broadcaster and journalist Steph McGovern, best known for her work as business presenter on BBC Breakfast.
