Rubi Slim System Tile Cutter added to Brandon Tool Hire’s fleet

LEADING THE WAY

Brandon Hire continues to be at the forefront of new developments, helping customers take advantage of the latest products on the market.

As a result the Rubi Slim System tile cutter has been added to the company’s hire fleet. This is a manual cutter that’s specially designed for large format porcelain tiles up to 3m by 1.2m.

Commercial Manager Nigel Strickland said: “We were recently approached by one of the world’s largest tile manufactures to be their preferred hire partner to supply their customers, which is great news.

“These cutters have been developed due to the growing popularity of large tiles, which are being used increasingly on commercial buildings, hotels and refurbishment works.”
