Qdos also provided and managed a range of added value services to complement the products being supplied, this included carpenters to build and install over 80 purpose built access steps and ramps and cladding to finish and dress units.

James Thomas, managing director of Qdos Event Hire said: “It is a fantastic achievement to be recognised by such an esteemed panel of judges from the hire industry. It was a hotly contested category with a number of very deserving companies shortlisted alongside us. It was an excellent evening all round and receiving the commendation was the icing on the cake.”
