John Hill and Sons Acquires Trime Lightning Sets


John Hill and Sons, a family owned and Hereford based hire firm, has ventured into LED site lightning with the purchase of four Trime X-ECO LED lightning sets.

“We purchased just four sets of Trime lighting towers from Trime UK. These were purchased via their sales manager, Andrew Owen. One of the main reasons we decided to go with the Trime brand, even though it was a small order, was that Andrew took such a great interest and did his best to get the machines to us as quickly as he could,” commented Lewis Hill on the purchase.

The firm was impressed with the X-ECO’s compact, fuel saving properties, and energy conservation attributes. Trime engineers have calculated that the X-ECO uses approximately £336.00 less in fuel each month, when compared to many lighting sets currently available. These savings equate to a reduction in Co2 output by around 888 kg per month. Additionally, thirteen X-ECOs can be loaded on one single truck, which can potentially lead to an increase in the delivery vehicle fleet utilisation.

“We were impressed with the complete Trime team and their knowledge designing and manufacturing lighting towers. We now run almost 20 lighting sets. However we anticipate that we will continue to update some of older sets to Trime units later in the year. This is one of the best services we have received when purchasing new machines,” concluded Lewis Hill.

Trime UK has been developing and marketing environmentally sustainable lightning sets for the hire industry for over 50 years. The Trime manufacturing plant is based in Cassinetta di Lugagnano, near Milan and Trime UK is situated in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

John Hill & Sons has been providing a comprehensive range of tools, plant and ground care equipment for private and commercial customers in Hereford and the surrounding areas for over 20 years. They are based in Swainshill, Hereford.
