One Stop Hire Ltd has completed the acquisition of specialist training provider WHS Safety Solutions Ltd based in Great Harwood, Lancashire & will market the company as One Stop Safety Training Solutions.
WHS is accredited to carry out many training courses including IPAF, PASMA & Ladder Association. In total over 100 courses are offered from their brand new training facility which opened in 2013.
Lead trainer Ross Ciraolo will be joined by James Mckinnell & Beckie Thompson who are dedicated training people with an excellent track record of sourcing & delivering training to single operators to large national giants. The new staff will work hand in hand with the One Stop Hire sales team to offer existing clients a full training offering as well as source new business from new sectors.
Steve Hitchen, M.D of One Stop Hire commented, “last year more & more clients enquired about training, in particular in relation to Access which was & still is our biggest growth area. We began to source training providers & it became another arm to our re-hire service. WHS was one of our suppliers & they always delivered a first class service to our clients so when the company came on the market it made perfect sense to buy them. Adding this dedicated centre to our network takes us one step nearer our aim of becoming a “Total Solutions Provider” to our clients for Hire, Sales, Training & Equipment Repair & Testing. As construction grows again & employs more people the requirement for training will grow & we see this part of our business contributing a million pounds of revenue per annum within two years”.
