Jeff and Sheryl Wallis are Taranaki born and bred. They started their first business Wallis Developments Ltd in 1981 and this is still running today. Because people kept asking Jeff if they could borrow his tools and machinery it was decided to create and develop Equipment Hire in 2002 and it’s still growing. They have just celebrated 20 years!

Jeff and Sheryl love their community so they like to help out by sponsoring schools and kindergartens, sports teams, clubs and volunteer organisations. They genuinely enjoy helping and are often seen giving back to the people.

If they don’t have what you need they will try and source it for you.
