plasa focusPearce Hire have announced that they will be exhibiting for the first time at PLASA Focus: Leeds 2013.  This regional two-day event taking place on 30th April and 1st May is the premier entertainment technology trade show in the North of England and is run by the industry trade body PLASA.

‘We have watched the impressive development of PLASA Focus as it has established itself as a strong and effective regional event, and we felt that 2013 was the right time to get involved’, states Shaun Pearce, MD of Pearce Hire.

The past year has seen significant expansion for Pearce Hire in a number of areas, with an increased warehouse footprint at their HQ in Peterborough. The company has also made significant investments in their product inventory and expanded the team to meet the challenges and demands of a diverse and growing range of customers. All in all this should ensure that the excellent service standards Pearce Hire has built it’s reputation on are maintained for their loyal and new customers.

‘These expansion plans have been part of a broader company strategy,’ observes Pearce. ‘And part of that strategy is to expand our rental operation more into the northern market. In the past we did a fair bit of business in the north and we hope that our presence at PLASA Focus will help us to re-establish these contacts.’

Pearce Hire has recently secured the renewal of 3 major contracts ranging between 3 and 5 years with Warner’s Motor Home Shows, the Forestry Commission and the Cambridge Folk Festival. These contracts will see Pearce Hire work around the country for these important clients. Simultaneously engaging with new customers in the North is a natural progression for the company.

‘Exhibiting at PLASA Focus: Leeds 2013 is the ideal way to re-acquaint ourselves with the northern market and the events taking place in the region. There is no other regional exhibition servicing the live touring and outdoor event industry in the North. We have made significant investments in new equipment over the past year, and our plan is to augment this over the coming months. Now is the time for us to increase our brand awareness nationwide and engage proactively with the marketplace about the broad array of services that we offer. PLASA Focus will help Pearce Hire to achieve this’.

Pearce Hire services range from sales, installation, dry hire and rental, servicing and in-house electrical testing, to turnkey production management and project consultancy.
