Sustainability & Macroom Tool Hire and Sales

Economically

Thanks to you,  our loyal customers and a bit of hard work, we’re still in business. Hiring tools & equipment offers an easy alternative to purchasing in the short or long term. It omits maintenance, storage, insurance and calibration costs as well as the cost associated with idle tools. Hiring offers an inexpensive way to test new products, with the option to ‘buy’ always available. When you hire or buy equipment from us you also get our expertise and user-guidance. 

Socially

Environmentally

The Tool Hire strives to reduce, reuse, recycle wherever possible, at the heart of our business we offer hiring and repair services, saving money and reducing waste. We recycle wherever possible and look for environmentally friendly alternatives wherever available, both in the running of the business and the equipment. 

Further Steps:

  • Becoming an agent for Aspen Fuels  – When you use Aspen alkylate petrol, you can be sure that you are making a great choice, both regarding your health and our environment.
  • All of our Scrap Metal is collected and recycled.
  • All of our Cardboard is collected and recycled by KWD Recycling
  • We are currently assessing the best option for recycling or reusing our Waste Oils

We consider our business as a fundamentally sustainable business. Hiring equipment and tools is an environmentally and financially sound option, reducing the need for everyone to buy and own equipment. We are committed to taken even more steps towards being even more sustainable
