As part of a programme of expansion, we are pleased to announce that Martins Tool Hire, part of The Champion Group of Companies, will be moving to a new, purpose-built unit during May 2021.
Based at the newly developed Champion House complex on Wella Road, the new unit will see a massive investment into the business, allowing us to service trade and retail customers more efficiently.
This includes investment in a wide range of new stock, the installation of a state-of-the-art computer management system and a new larger team led by Ryan Griffen, who joined us in January 2021 as Business Manager and brings a wealth of experience to the business alongside Hire Manager, Mark Steed.
A major part of this move will also see Martins Tool Hire become Champion Tool Hire, as we bring all of The Champion Group Of Companies under one roof for the first time.Barry Champion, Managing Director of The Champion Group, said,
“It’s an exciting time for the whole business as we consolidate into the new location. Martins Tool Hire continues to be an integral part of our group, and it will be good to have all the teams together at the new building, especially as Champion Tool Hire.”
The move is expected to take place by May 2021, with the fit-out and finishing touches currently taking place. The name change will be introduced over the same period, with the launch of a new, intuitive website and re-branded price lists.
Ryan Griffen, Business Manager, added,
“Starting in January 2021, during a national lockdown, I have spent a lot of time with the team getting to understand what we need to do as we move and grow, and we have identified a range of things to help us build on Martins Tool Hire’s history in the town.
“As we make this move to the new unit, and with the new name, we fully intend to grow the business for trade and retail customers while ensuring we retain our high levels of personal service”.
