GAP scores a hat-trick of award nominations

Hire Association Europe and Event Hire Association (HAE EHA) have announced the chosen finalists for their prestigious Hire Awards of Excellence 2018.

GAP Hire Solutions has been shortlisted in three categories:

• Event Equipment Hire Company of the Year
• Catalogue of the Year
• Best Sustainability and CSR Initiative

All nominations have been independently judged against stringent criteria, with the awards providing an excellent way of acknowledging and showcasing some of the very best practices that the hire industry can offer.

An independent family-owned business, GAP has been providing companies with equipment hire solutions for nearly 50 years’. With eight specialist divisions and over 130 locations throughout the UK, the company has come a long way since its humble beginnings as solely a plant hire company.

GAP’s Joint Managing Director Iain Anderson said: “The award nominations are testament to the hard work of our teams across the business. At last year’s awards ceremony, we won three prizes including the headline Hire Achiever accolade. Hopefully this year’s event proves to be as successful!”

Following the announcements, HAE EHA’s Managing Director Graham Arundell commented: “The calibre of all the finalists is extremely high and the judges had some tough decisions to make in order to choose the nominations. We are proud to be involved in such a vibrant industry which is not only supporting and rewarding its experienced members, but is proactive in nurturing its youth skills too. I’m very excited to see how the evening turns out.”

This much-anticipated awards ceremony will be held at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Saturday 28th April and will be hosted by BBC Breakfast’s Chris Hollins.
