About Us

Company Information

Hiretech are a world leader in the design and manufacture of floor sanders and steam wallpaper strippers for the tool rental and hire, contractor, professional flooring and decorating markets.

Starting out as a tool rental (hire) business in March 1955, opening the first store of its kind in the United Kingdom, the business grew to encompass the distribution of a wide range of products to the tool hire market in the UK. In 1974 Hiretech began the manufacture of floor sanders for the hire and rental markets worldwide. Both the tool hire and manufacturing operations grew through the 1980's with the opening of Hiretech Hire Centres in Sainsbury's Homebase DIY stores in the UK and the design and manufacture of the first modern steam wallpaper stripper.

Today, six decades after its founding, Hiretech is committed to delivering technologies, products and services that customers and partners can build on and grow with. Through constant innovation, Hiretech is pushing the boundaries of product design, improving user experience and adding value to its markets worldwide.

In the increasingly high-pressure world of manufacturing, outsourcing and sub-contracting has become a way of survival for many. The loss of control over process and core skills leads to a failure to be able to effectively meet and respond to market forces.

Hiretech manufacture over 80% of its products in-house, this total focus on manufacturing retains the skills and knowledge needed to meet Hiretech's customers, partners and market needs. Product design and development capabilities are retained in-house, which ensures that all Hiretech products achieve the highest standards of quality, reliability and performance.

An example of Hiretech's investment in technology and in-house manufacturing process is demonstrated in the following video. Hiretech's Robotic Polishing Cell is polishing a HTF Orbital Floor & Deck Sander bottom casting after machining, before going on to final assembly.
