Private contractors, landscape gardeners, sports clubs and golf courses can benefit from Swan Plant Services’ short-term hire and contract hire schemes through a new service aimed at the private sector. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Knutsford-based firm made the announcements at IoG Saltex last week and also launched a series of support initiatives for councils. The service will trade under the name Swan Direct, with a dedicated team operating through the company’s network of depots. “The fleet of 6,000 machines enables contractors to employ large, expensive machines, such as ride-on mowers and chippers,” said Swan chairman Ted Mitchell. “Hiring from Swan also enables contractors to benefit from the latest technological advances in grounds care equipment.” New services aimed at local authority customers include training, health and safety, and equipment maintenance programmes. “We believe grounds maintenance will follow the construction industry in legally requiring all operatives to prove their competency with all relevant equipment before they can work,” said Mitchell. Swan Plant Services is also expected to open a new depot in London during 2004.
