As part of Qdos Event Hire’s ongoing plans for growth and national expansion, it has opened an office in Glasgow with Jonathan Reid appointed regional manager. Reid, a highly respected event professional with 28 years’ experience in delivering temporary accommodation and welfare facilities will be developing the business throughout Scotland and the north of England.

Vice-chair of NOEA Scotland with strong links to Portable Sanitation Europe (PSE) and regular involvement with the Event Industry Forum, Reid brings with him an unrivalled knowledge of events in the region. This, along with an established client base and reliable supply chain of sub-contractors and freelancers, following the withdrawal of his previous employer from the events industry, make him an excellent addition to the Qdos team.

Commenting on his appointment, James Thomas, managing director of Qdos Event Hire said: “Extending our reach nationally has been part of our long-term ambitions for the business for some time now. Jonathan’s reputation and dedication are very much aligned with Qdos’ commitment to delivering high quality products and excellent customer service and he’s already proving to be a superb addition. With his professional approach and excellent knowledge and understanding of clients’ requirements, Jonathan is perfectly placed to develop our dedicated operation that services events in Scotland and the north of England.”

Reid adds: “I jumped at the opportunity to join the Qdos team, having kept a watchful eye on the business as a competitor, I’m more than confident that together we can offer an excellent range of products with service levels to match and develop the business as a truly national brand. We’ve hit the ground running with both the reception and comments from clients being exceptional. I think Qdos has a successful future ahead of it serving events in Scotland.”

Most recently Qdos has delivered a combination of cabins and toilets to several golfing events held in the north, including the Ladies Scottish Open, Scottish Open, Ladies Amateur Championship and Men’s Amateur Championship. In addition, it has secured a long-term contract to supply toilets to

Edinburgh University and is providing toilets, offices and standby staff at Edinburgh Airport for a series of drive-in movies.
