Speedy Hire appoints MHP

Speedy Hire PLC, the UK’s leading tools and equipment hire company, has appointed MHP Communications to be its retained financial PR adviser following a competitive pitch process.

Speedy Hire operates from over 200 sites in the UK and its customers include 85 of the UK’s 100 contractors.

The win continues the momentum of MHP’s Capital Markets practice, led by Oliver Hughes and Andrew Jaques, the division’s Executive Chairman, and adds to the agency’s impressive roster of support services and construction clients including Northgate, Grafton and Marshalls.

Other significant wins for the Capital Markets team include the Restaurant Group, the company behind some of the UK’s most popular restaurants and pubs including Frankie and Benny’s, Chiquito and Joe’s Kitchen. In July, the team also announced that it had completed a record half of IPO mandates in 2018, advising on 10 per cent of all the new listing on the London Stock Exchange.

Commenting on the latest win, Oliver Hughes, Managing Director and Head of Capital Markets, said:

“Speedy Hire is exactly the sort of industry leader we enjoy working with and we are delighted to have been chosen to advise the business as they communicate their growth strategy to the market.”
