Kier Group Case Study

The Kier Group is a leading construction, services and property group specialising in building and civil engineering, support services, public and private house building, property development and structured property financing. The Group employs over 10,000 people worldwide and has annual revenue of £2.1bn.

Smye-Rumsby in partnership with the Kier Group continue to supply radios on short term hire, long term hire and outright purchase increasing site safety, productivity and greatly reducing monthly GSM network charges

The Challenge

Whatever a customer requires at any stage of the built environment life cycle, one or more of our businesses can bring them solutions, individually or combined, locally or nationally.  The Kier group boasts a network of over 50 regional offices and our strong local relationships ensure that we can supply both the skills and the resources to meet customer demands, any time, anywhere.

Based on the very high standards we set ourselves, our suppliers in tern also need to consistently deliver the same very high standards in their specialist area. That’s why Smye-Rumsby are the sole suppliers to the Kier Group and have full responsibility for ensuring that group communications are catered for.

The Outcome

Smye Rumsby has time and again proved to be an excellent choice for the provision of our communication requirements. Smye-Rumsby supply hire radios on short term contracts when sites only require radios for a couple of days whilst also providing radio hire for long term projects. The continued support on these products whilst on-site, gives the people on the ground peace of mind.

Servicing and repairs are carried out on the small fleet of radios that the Kier Group own and competitive pricing is given for the purchase of new radios when the fleet needs to be replenished. On occasions, greater distances need to be covered and multiple channels are required on site.

Smye-Rumsby offer free site surveys and extensive site trials to ensure that all of the sites requirements are catered for. With the extensive hire fleet Smye-Rumsby operates, they are able to support our business perfectly. What sets Smye-Rumsby apart from the competition is their passion for customer satisfaction and their can do attitude.

"Often hire radios are required at very short notice and Smye-Rumsby has never let us down. Smye Rumsby has time and again proved to be an excellent choice for the provision of our communication requirements."
