  • Brandon Hire is a long established, well managed profitable business which is an extremely positive addition to the Vp group. With an extensive branch network, Brandon Hire is an excellent geographic fit with our current specialist tool hire operations and we expect this acquisition to be earnings enhancing to the Group in the first twelve months of ownership

Brandon Hire Station Overview

As a major national provider of tools and equipment we are always looking to improve and invest in our business...

Health and Safety

Excellent health and safety performance is fundamental to our business. It is essential that we provide a safe working environment for our employees and that the equipment we supply to our customers is safe and fit for purpose.

We strive to minimise accidents and dangerous occurrences. We aim to continually improve standards of health and safety within all our businesses and with our customers. The Group sets an overall policy for the management of health and safety.

All businesses, within the VP group have clear policies and procedures and appropriate risk assessment techniques backed by training and clear communication.

Training is focused not only on specific hazards but also the wider obligations of management. These activities are overseen by appropriately qualified and experienced health and safety advisers and are subject to regular audit, both internally and externally.

The Health and Safety performance is monitored within the business. This incorporates analysis of accidents, near misses and dangerous occurrences. Where accidents, near misses or dangerous occurrences happen these are investigated in order for them to be fully understood and for appropriate action to be taken to minimise the risk of occurrence.

Business Relationships and Ethics

The Vp plc group has always conducted its business responsibly and ethically. The Vp plc group is committed to operating with honesty and integrity, and all employees are expected to maintain high standards. The standards expected are specified in codes of conduct to which employees are required to adhere, including compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Vp plc group has clearly stated any zero-tolerance policies in relation to acts of bribery and corruption and anti-competitive behavior.

The Vp plc group also supports the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. At Vp, we believe in the rights of individuals and take our responsibilities seriously with regard to all our employees, as well as those who may be affected by our activities. In particular, Vp supports the objectives of the Modern Slavery Act and will not tolerate slavery or human trafficking within its own supply chain.

Our procurement activities are aligned to our company values and to the laws of the countries in which we operate. We take a risk-based approach regarding our supply chain; where possible we build longstanding relationships with our suppliers and make clear our expectations of behavior and we have systems in place to encourage the reporting of concerns. In the small number of instances where we assess the risk to be relatively high, we carry out checks to ensure compliance with stated policies and procedures. During the year the Group, having continued its reviews of the supply chain, published its second modern slavery statement.
