SSE's Hire division, together with Canegreen ended 2009 with empty warehouses - which is the way we like it!
2009 was SSE Audio Group's most successful year ever, after joining forces with Canegreen in 2008, expanding the installations business of SSE London, launching Sigma Fabrications, achieving a record turnover with SSE Sales and acquiring the corporate hire and installations business of Green-i.
For SSE Hire, we were delighted to be voted Favourite Sound Rental Company at the 2009 TPi Awards. Adding L-Acoustics K1 to our inventory was a really key event and the system has quickly gained plaudits wherever it has been on tour.
The last quarter of the year was especially busy for the hire division and as we've recently updated some of our projects on the website - here's a summary of some of the tours & events we were involved with in November and December. Read more about all those with links (each opens in a new tab/window).
