Growing business boosted by accreditation

The firm, which has employed 13 Islanders over the past three years, recently achieved the BSI ISO certification 9001 and National Highways Sector Scheme certification.

The accreditation rounds off a busy summer of events for the team, who now turn their attention to the winter weather and continued resurfacing of the Island’s roads.

The team, who primarily provide traffic management for the Island’s PFI contractor, began with just two operatives but now boasts a team of 13 who work around the clock, seven days a week.

The traffic management division of HSS Hire began its venture at the Parkhurst Road Hire Shop in Newport, but rapidly outgrew the space, and in April this year the firm opened its first dedicated traffic management depot on Nicholson Road, Ryde.
