The Swansea branch of Brandon Hire have hired six lighting towers to the BBC’s ‘Biggest Weekend’ music festival held at Singleton Park, just outside the City centre.
With thousands of music fans descending onto the site, naturally the safety of the visitors was of paramount importance. Consequently, the event organisers contacted Brandon Hire’s Swansea branch requesting some substantial engine-powered lighting sets that would ensure the safe passage of both foot traffic and vehicles into the main arena.
Brandon Hire’s Swansea branch manager, Chris Lewis explained, “We have close links with the event teams at Swansea Council and they recommended us to the organisers of the Biggest Weekend. The requirement was for good quality lighting along with extended running times between refuelling.”
“We decided that due to the importance of this very prestigious event, the X-Eco LED lighting sets
would be the best product to cover the organiser’s responsibilities. We have had previous experience with these units and always found them more than satisfactory,” added Chris.
And we supplied the X-Eco LED lights to Brandon Hire, we supply a wide range of lighting and associated power products to Brandon Hire throughout their branch network.
Based in the Borders of Scotland, Redpath Tool Hire is currently expanding their range of generators due to increasing demand from clients throughout Scotland and the Border region.
The company, owned and managed by Alan Redpath, have over the past two years purchased a collection of 2.5kVA and 6.0kVA petrol and diesel sets. With the call for larger sets mounting, the company has now extended their hire fleet to include 20kVA sets, following a new investment in the our GE 20 SSY-MV, UK Rental Specification model.

Before the company selected us as their principal supplier of power generation machinery, they carried out an extensive evaluation of generators offered by other manufacturers. After the completion of this evaluation process, it became evident that we led the way in meeting their technical and commercial criteria. They have now finalised a long-term supply agreement with us alongside other key suppliers.
Alan Redpath explained,” We have been dealing with Mat and the team at MHM Plant for nearly two years now. They have demonstrated on numerous occasions their ability to deliver and support hires throughout Scotland whether it be hire or sale.”
Alan continued, “They have a fantastic technical team behind the scenes that complement the sales and rehire departments within MHM Plant and their service is unquestionable. We are already in advance discussions to support MHM Plant and promote their products throughout Scotland in the coming months.”
Redpath Tool Hire also takes advantage of the our re-hire service, which gives them enhanced coverage throughout Scotland. This service helps them to extend their range of supply without having to compromise any of their commercial confidentiality. They also have plans to add lighting towers alongside 33kVA, 45kVA and 60kVA generators to support the local event market in the Scottish Borders.
