They say time flies when you’re having fun, and that’s certainly the case for Nigel McKinley, Managing Director at Uphire. In April, Uphire celebrated two years in business. In 2 years Uphire has grown from a one man operation to a full team of 9, and from a handful of machines to a fleet of over 100.
Careful planning, coupled with a wealth of experience in the hire and access industries has enabled this stellar rate of growth and there is plenty more to come, with an ambitious 5 year plan still being executed.
Some key achievements from the last two years include developing a full range of equipment from the smallest 19ft Scissor Lifts, right through to Australia’s biggest boom, the JLG 1500 SJ Cherry Picker. Uphire has also become a Master Agent for Powerlift, the sole supplier of Nissan Forklifts in Australia. Uphire’s customer portfolio includes large organisations from the Mining, Manufacturing, Event Management, Construction and Infrastructure sectors.
Uphire are not just about supply of equipment. As the product range has expanded, Uphire has retained a focus on an extremely high standard of business operations from customer service to workplace health and safety, Uphire’s aims are always about best practice and continuous improvement, factors which will no doubt ensure continued success for many years to come.
