Management Advice | Business Services | Read more

Jamieson has advised HSS Hire on its recent strategic review and raising of additional investment and acquisition facilities.

 

HSS is the second largest operator in the UK tool and equipment hire market. The business was acquired from Davis Service group in a 3i-backed management buyout in 2004. Since then, the business has been extensively restructured and has delivered significant growth in both revenues and profit.

Our continued involvement with a team we first worked with some four years ago is a demonstration of our focus on investing in long term relationships with our clients.”
