Hamblin Hire had its early beginnings as Airport Handi Hire, a business
established by Bob Hamblin in 1978 Located in a small rented property at the
In 1980 the business moved to Fallon Street and occupied an area
of land at a garden supply business. The business changed its name to Hamblin
Handy Hire and Bob operated with a very small amount of equipment in what was
seemingly an oversized garden shed.
In 1982 Bob Hamblin’s son Michael joined the
business and together they began to grow the business slowly increasing the size
of the plant and equipment. In 1986 another name change took place to reflect
the true nature of the business and became Hamblin Hire.
After steering the
company through very hard and tough years Bob Hamblin retired in 1992. The
business is now owned by Mike and Ursula Hamblin and has continued a steady
growth. The expansion of the business can be reflected in its current location
in Drome Street Albury.
Since its early beginnings in the late 70’s Hamblin Hire
has grown from the smallest hire business in the region to what is arguably one
of the largest and best between the capital cities. Mike and Ursula today still
maintain the values set by Bob Hamblin in those early years that can be
attributed as a factor to the growth of the business.
Hamblin Hire is now
focussed on developing further their services in the Commercial Sector,
Contractors and Builders as well as the Home Handy person areas providing
ever-increasing ranges of equipment in those areas.
