The HS2 high speed rail network linking north and south is a massive and monumental project. Phase 1 from London to Birmingham is due to be operational by 2026 and part of a whole new railway route being delivered by 2033. With Royal Assent granted, HS2’s developers have termed 2018 the ‘Year of Design’.

HS2 is already bringing about thousands of new opportunities within the HS2 supply chain for SME’s in a raft of sectors. As this exciting new railway changes the landscape of Britain, opportunities will spring up, requiring different capabilities, for suppliers and businesses of all shapes and sizes, in the rail supply chain and many others too, including hospitality, retail and professional services.

HS2 Supply chain SME support from Nationwide Hire

As a leading, national emergency hire business, Nationwide Hire can play a key role supporting businesses involved in HS2 by taking responsibility for ensuring timely and reliable hire and off-hire of equipment – for enabling works and main works – archaeology, ecology, demolition, earthworks for tunnels, cuttings and embankments, drainage, bridges, viaducts, and many other structures.

Without momentum, your HS2 project could grind to a halt. In commercial terms, that’s unthinkable. To avoid major disruptions and delays, you need things to work. Plant, equipment, services – you need them all functioning, in the right place, at the right time.

We take full responsibility for providing a rapid response for projects large and small, sourcing plant, access equipment, drones, accommodation, tools, supplies and specialist services, especially when deadlines change or other supply chains fail. Stock, geography or resources do not restrict us.

Nationwide Hire makes hundreds of same day deliveries every week. With reliable and cost-efficient service and transparent charging, we turn stressed construction site managers and buyers with immediate operational needs into satisfied customers, who rely on us so they can focus on the project at hand.
