Under the chairman and ownership of Hayden Smith, TRAD Hire & Sales first opened for business in 1998. In the subsequent years the company has grown considerably to have a nationwide network of depots, and to be one of the UK’s market leaders for the supply of non-mechanical scaffolding equipment to the construction and industrial sectors.
In the autumn of 2013 the ALTRAD Group bought a controlling stake, with their acquisition of the TRAD Group of companies. Their continued support has allowed TRAD Hire & Sales to move forward, increasing both its market share and turnover.
TRAD Hire and Sales is a full non-contracting member of the National Access & Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) and is a fully accredited ISO 9001 company. It also holds membership of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and has Multi Operating Centre Accreditation from the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS).
