GAP Event Services shortlisted at Hire Awards of Excellence 2019

Among the six awards that GAP Hire Solutions has been shortlisted for at the Hire Awards of Excellence is the SafeHire Event Equipment Hire Company of the Year accolade.

GAP’s Events division, a part of the UK’s largest independent rental company, has gone from strength to strength since its establishment in 2014. With over 140 depots strategically located across the country, GAP has the coverage to service any event – regardless of size, location or timespan.

GAP’s Event Services made it onto the shortlist by successfully demonstrating to the judges how the division achieves commercial success through the adoption of company values and procedures by all employees. The provision of stimulating and supportive workplaces, the active development of all their employees and a sustainable approach to business were also acknowledged to be key judging criteria.

The ever-growing GAP Event Services team is made up of specialists and combines the expertise of all of GAP’s divisions with their full backing: Plant & Tools Hire, Lifting Hire & Sales, Survey & Safety Hire, Welfare Services and Non-Mechanical Plant. From tower lights and portable toilets to man baskets and extension forks, we have what you need, providing a complete solution for the events industry.
