While the Australian hire industry largely remained resilient during the COVID-19 years, thanks to government infrastructure commitments and temporary financial support measures, some industry suppliers have been adversely affected by notable construction industry liquidations and the potential of more to come.
Recurring topics at this year’s conference sessions included the current unprecedented supply chain delays, fuel cost challenges and the national staff shortages threatening the ability to meet the current demand for hire services, particularly for the hard-hit events sector during its 2022 resurgence.
HIRE22 is the annual HRIA member conference combining workshop and expert panel sessions with a major exhibition showcasing the newest machinery, tools, and software to enable hire businesses to meet their clients’ needs professionally and efficiently.
About hire in Australia
Australia’s hire and rental industry was valued at $8.5 billion by data analyst IbisWorld in their 2019 Industry Report. The majority of the country’s hire companies provide rental equipment to the construction industry with the remainder supplying, in descending order, the sectors of infrastructure, home DIY, major events and parties.
