Steve has over 15 years’ rental experience and saw an opportunity to grow a hire business within a thriving market having cut his teeth in the rental business at Aggreko. Within a short space of time the hire business has grown and is now an integral part of the Swegon landscape in the UK.

Kevin has been in the rental industry for over 13 years, "Temperature Control" Hire for 8 years, and at Swegon Hire since 2013.

Kevin says “I love the urgency that the role brings. The combination of helping customers guard against downtime and helping customers find a solution when plans are not necessarily in place brings with it a certain satisfaction that is hard to match. The fact that emphasis in Swegon Hire is on customer retention appealed to me from the start - you can only retain customers by meeting/ exceeding their expectations. This is what I aim to do on a daily basis”.
