HerCanberra Team

Canberra’s own event hire company and HerCanberra’s preferred event supplier and sponsor of UNVEILED The Event, Barlens, has been named Rental Company of the Year – Events in the Hire and Rental Industry Association’s (HRIA) national Hire Industry Excellence Awards for 2017 .

The win is no small feat for the locally owned and grown business operating out of Canberra and Albury for over 50 years. The annual Awards, which pay tribute to the exceptional standards of service and innovation displayed throughout the hire sector, attract entries from the rental industry’s elite, right across Australia.

The HRIA is the key national industry body representing the AU$6bn hire and rental industry in Australia. Accepting the award on behalf of the company, Barlens CEO Peter Taylor said everyone in the Barlens family is ‘chuffed and very humbled’ by the win.

“This is the third time in five years Barlens has been nominated for this coveted accolade, which is an achievement in itself. To win it this year is the icing on the cake.

“Barlens is a unique business through which we get to be part of the happiness and enjoyment of Canberra and the surrounding community. From weddings and backyard parties to Floriade and the Multicultural Festival, Barlens is there – and that is an incredibly rewarding experience for us all.

“I want to thank our staff and our long-standing customers for the part they play in the ongoing growth and success of our business. Barlens’ customers are a testament to the dedication, professionalism, and exceptional customer service provided by every member of the Barlens team,” says Peter.

“Large-scale community events are no longer the domain of the big cities. Regional Australia has embraced the growth and innovation of the event industry nationally and Barlens is at the forefront of that evolution.”
