A1 is Dorset’s leading independent hire company in the field of industrial plant, tool and machinery hire.

Michael Barcia and Darren Thompson, Directors of Meridian led the transaction and Jamie Wollen, a partner at Lester Aldridge Solicitors led the legal input.

Jan Robinson commented, "We have been working with Meridian for some time and they have helped us achieve the best possible deal.”

Commenting on the transaction, Michael Barcia said, "A1 is a great acquisition for HSS.  This acquisition establishes HSS as the market leader in the Dorset area.  We are delighted to have helped Jan and Katie achieve their financial aims through the sale of their business and we look forward to our next deal in this sector."
