About Kensite Events
Kensite is one of the North West’s leading independent hirers of portable toilets and welfare stations, mobile site accommodation and secure onsite storage solutions.
Formed in 1988 as a hirer of mobile chemical toilets to the North West’s construction industry, we have expanded our product range since then to meet our customers’ evolving requirements. Today, our product range includes portable toilets, static and mobile welfare cabins, toilet blocks and stores.
Privately-owned Kensite’s operations are based on the Chanters Industrial Estate in Atherton, Greater Manchester. From this location our senior management team, supported by a dedicated and highly experienced workforce of drivers, fitters and administrative staff, is responsible for a hire fleet of more than 1,500 welfare and storage units. We also offer a wide range of generators for hire at competitive prices using our specialist hire partners.
Our client base ranges from local event organisations to the UK’s largest music festival. As such, our systems are designed to service customer requirements of all sizes, be it 1 unit or 100 units.
We are passionate about quality standards and carry ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditation.
