Test & Measurement Hire continue to thrive 10 months into acquisition

We are pleased to announce that ESS Safeforce’s Test & Measurement division, Test & Measurement Hire, continues to grow since parent company and equipment rental specialist, Vp plc acquired the business in November 2015.

Since the acquisition the business sector has continued to thrive whilst meeting its business objectives: to offer customers quality products at great prices, best suited to their application, when and where needed.

Ken Grannell, Director at Test & Measurement Hire commented:

“It is hard to believe that it is less than 10 months since Test & Measurement Hire became part of the ESS Safeforce business and we have already exceeded our short term goals. We always knew there would be some real opportunities by being part of such a successful organisation but the business growth to date has surpassed our expectations.”

Dennis Wilson, Operations Manager at Test & Measurement Hire commented:

“As busy as we were before, it was obvious, immediately after the acquisition that things were only going to go in one direction for Test & Measurement Hire. From day one, the support and backup from ESS Safeforce, both personally and financially, have been brilliant, and with other plans in place to take us even further, it really is an exciting time to be a part of Test & Measurement Hire and ESS Safeforce.”

It is hoped that this successful partnership will continue to cultivate more business opportunities, enabling the group to provide an even greater level of service to its existing and new customers.
