Patti’s Hire acquires Pages Event Hire

Patti’s Hire has acquired Pages Event Hire as a going concern, following the recent purchase of the events division of Exponet (formerly Butlers Hire).

Despite a COVID-19 affected market, Patti’s Hire says it is ideally positioned financially and operationally to grow through the current conditions, integrating the vast equipment resource of Pages inventory and recognising and building on the goodwill developed over more than 60 years of Pages’ history.

“This additional acquisition signals a new era for Patti’s Hire, strengthening their strategic position with the ability to easily service the temporary infrastructure needs of the East Coast of Australia with a vast resource pool,” the company said in a statement.

Many key personnel have been retained from Pages.

“With this acquisition we have now got a highly experienced team with a huge knowledge and skill base to draw on, coupled with one of the largest combined structure and furniture inventories in the country, providing our clients with an increase in quality and variety of equipment available,” said Patti’s Hire CEO Darren Wheeler.
