GAP Hire Solutions has been shortlisted for Large Rental Company of the Year by the European Rental Awards.
The awards celebrate the best companies in the hire industry and will take place during the European Rental Awards (ERA) Convention, which takes place in Rome on 3rd June.
The nomination comes after a hugely successful year for GAP, in which they expect to exceed £140m turnover, an increase of 20% on the previous year, and executed a complete rebrand to GAP Hire Solutions.
GAP focused heavily on training and development in 2014, creating a new Vision and Mission that sets outs its aim to be the UK’s most innovative hire solution provider. The company also launched its GAP CODE, a set of values that define the way that GAP approaches their employees, customers and the working environment. GAP’s workforce of over 1300 all received training on the Vision, Mission and GAP CODE to ensure that the values are embedded throughout the business.
Joint Managing Director, Iain Anderson, said, “We are ecstatic that we have been shortlisted for this award as it is one of the most prestigious awards in the industry and it is a true testament to the hard work of our employees, who are our biggest asset.
“GAP is growing rapidly, with the opening of four new divisions in the past year and we have ambitious plans to grow even further in the next few years. We have focused on providing a full hire solution to our customers through our divisions by delivering excellent customer service. We also invest around 50% of our turnover on new equipment annually, so our customers know they are getting the best kit available.”
