KENNARDS RELEASE NEW WEBSITE

Kennards have gone live with a new online hire website

which is proving to be a first for the industry. Using the first

live equipment hire platform in Australia, customers can now

browse, select and book all the tools for the job from their

computer, tablet or smartphone.

Chief operating officer and acting CEO of Kennards

Hire, Bill Whitehouse, said delivering a convenient,

anywhere, anytime option for hiring was a key motivator for

producing the new website.

“We knowour customers can be time poor and unexpected

jobs can pop up on-site last minute,” Bill explained.

“To help customers, we wanted to provide an easy browse,

order and pay online service available 24/7.”

Theo Triantafillides, chief commercial officer, said giving

Kennards Hire customers ease and convenience was the main driver

in the creation of the new site.

“We spent months refining it to be something that made sense

and is easy for the customer, as well as providing an excellent self-

service experience,” Theo said.

The site includes ‘how to’ guides and videos to help Kennards

Hire customers to complete jobs safely. Account customers can

access their accounts and also pay invoices online.

Widening the scope of their service, the newwebsite aims to appeal

to all varieties of Kennards Hire customers, from tradies and commer-

cial users to DIY’ers, weekend warriors and everything in-between.

FUEL SAVING DEVICE TO BE

MANUFACTURED IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Production of a fuel saving device for internal combustion engines

will begin in South Australia in the coming months.

Hydroflex is preparing final trials of its version one hydrogen-

based fuel reduction system ahead of its commercial launch.

The system can cut fuel use by 10 to 15 per cent while reduc-

ing exhaust emissions and can be fitted to diesel or petrol engines

ranging in size from a car to a cruise ship.

Hydroflex, formerly known as Hydrogen Power Systems,

relocated from San Diego in the United States to the Tonsley

Innovation Hub in South Australian capital Adelaide in April.

The company will begin by focusing on devices for large

engines such as generators on mining sites, long-haul trucks, ships

and diesel trains because they represent the biggest opportunities in

terms of fuel savings and emission reductions. Independent testing

will begin on generators for the mining industry and trucks for the

transport industry in the coming weeks.

The first commercial units are expected to be available for sale

before the end of the year.

Chief technology officer and inventor Richard Connors, who has

been working on the device for a decade, said the business was highly

scalable and would continue to expand as demand grew.

The Hydroflex system can cut fuel use by 10 to 15 per cent, reduce exhaust

emissions and be fitted to diesel or petrol engines.
