Our Group

Our Group is divided into two businesses: Rental, which accounts for approximately 70% of Group revenue, and Services, which is the balance.


Our Rental segment comprises rental income earned from HSS-owned tools and equipment and directly related revenue e.g. resale, transport and other ancillary revenues. This business serves the very fragmented £1.9bn market for small tools, power generation and powered access, via a combination of our HSS Tool Hire and specialist businesses, ABird, and Apex. The rental business has a truly national network of convenient locations, a unique 24/7 distribution operation, knowledgeable colleagues, and a wide range of well-maintained compliant equipment. This business is also increasingly accessed through the digital channel thanks to our industry-leading fully transactional website, which stands out in a digitally immature market.


Our capital-light Services segment directly complements our Rental business and comprises income from our OneCall rehire and HSS Training businesses. The fast-growing OneCall rehire business allows us to serve the entire £4bn UK hire market with 1,000s of additional products, without the requirement for capital investment. It has a network of over 400 accredited suppliers, is inherently scalable and has improving margins. The fast-growing HSS Training business offers customers a national training solution for their employees, predominantly servicing the c£328m UK H&S training market. It is market leading in PASMA, CITB and Ladder training and number two in IPAF. With over 200 courses, 56 trainers, 47 venues throughout the UK (and increasing), and a leading online training management and online booking system, we are able to serve over 60,000 delegates a year.
