“This year is Hire Safe Solution’s 10th year in business. Our customers trust us to deliver products and services on time, and we will not commit to anything we cannot do.

“I saw the SX-135 XC for the first time at Vertikal Days in Silverstone in 2017, and promptly bought three of them that day because of their outreach, making us one of the first companies in Europe to purchase the machine and offer it to the UK market. The performance and reliability of the SX-135 XC has lived up to our expectations, that and its performance a just two of the reasons we are adding more units to the fleet,” said Jennings.
