Executive Hire News was originally launched in December 1971 to serve the developing plant and tool hire sector. Having re-branded the magazine as Executive Hire News in March 1993, and acquired the controlling interest in the publication in July 1998, the current management team has clearly established Executive Hire News as the Voice of the Hire Industry.

    Executive Hire News enjoys an unrivalled reputation for its integrity, independence, credibility, relevance, reach and impact throughout the tools, equipment and plant hire industry. 

Throughout its history, Executive Hire News has helped to set the industry agenda by identifying key issues affecting hirers, especially Health & Safety. Our pro-active outlook led us to host two dedicated Hand Arm Vibration Conferences in 2005 and 2006, as well as publishing separate Supplements on Work At Height, as well as Hand Arm Vibration.

The magazine is also the platform for the Executive Hire Show, which is the foremost exhibition for the UK plant and tool hire industry.

The circulation for the January 2021 edition of EHN was 5650 copies, comprising hire industry professionals who have the responsibility for purchasing tools, plant and equipment.
