HSS Hire strengthens industry position

HSS Hire Services Group, the UK's leading national supplier of tools, equipment and related services, has acquired Premiere FCM Limited (TecServ), the specialist provider of maintenance services for cleaning machines, from Premiere Products Group.

The acquisition will accelerate HSS' growth in the cleaning sector - adding a national fleet of engineers famous for their 'first fix' record and bringing a new dimension to Reintec, HSS' own cleaning equipment service known for its range of green machines and service proposition.

TecServ's capabilities will complement and broaden the footprint of Reintec, HSS' fully outsourced cleaning equipment service which launched in 2011 and has grown rapidly by delivering on its promise to save facility managers time and money in equipment management - going straight to the heart of FM's everyday problems.

TecServ has a successful track record in expert maintenance services in contract cleaning for local authorities, PFI sites and specialist food facilities throughout the UK as well as to major contract cleaning contractors. They will continue to maintain a substantial range of cleaning machines for national customers as well as supporting growing numbers of those who choose Reintec.

Chris Davies, chief executive officer at HSS Hire, said: “The addition of TecServ to the HSS Group is a strong step for the growth of our company in the cleaning sector. TecServ fits well within our existing equipment portfolio and will further enhance our position as a trusted partner and service leader in the tools and equipment rental, outsourcing and services sector. It is an exciting time for our business as we embark upon the next stage of growth and development - increasing our presence in existing markets and expanding in new ones throughout the UK and Ireland.”

Paul Lewis, managing director at Reintec, said: “Reintec remains a unique model in the market that really is helping our customers to save time, save money and guarantee their equipment compliance. However, we know that one size does not fit all and there is still a significant amount of owned cleaning equipment in use today which needs to be managed and maintained effectively. I am extremely pleased that with the addition of TecServ we will now be able to offer an even more complete cleaning equipment service to our customers - whether they use Reintec equipment or their own - designed around their needs and backed by innovative technology.”

Graham Stevens, commercial director at TecServ UK, said: “We believe there is enormous potential to grow TecServ with the backing of HSS - significantly increasing our combined market share, skilled capabilities and overall customer offering at a dynamic time in cleaning services industry.”

HSS and TecServ will continue to partner with Premiere Products Group to provide complete cleaning solutions for all customers.
