OUR COMMITMENT TO making a difference

At THX we recognise that we have a corporate responsibility to consider the effect our business has on the wider world around us – the environment, local communities, our customers, and our colleagues.

Our core values reflect how we conduct ourselves as a business – with transparency and accountability. That is why we actively look at ways to make a positive contribution, improve sustainability, reduce our impact on the environment, invest in people, and give back to the community – both near and far.

sustainability and the environment

We believe in looking ahead and protecting future generations. Therefore, as part of our corporate responsibility, we are committed to operating as sustainably as we can and identifying areas that we can make improvements.

Sustainability

Minimising our impact

Operating within the hire industry means single products are used over and over again in a sustainable cycle of  hiring, servicing, re-purposing, re-hiring.

However, we believe that as a business we should aim to minimalise the impact we have on the world around us.

We are committed to continuously assessing and improving the way that we work – to ensure operational efficiency and lessen the impact of the footprint we leave.

Examples of sustainability initiatives

Supporting New Initiatives

At THX we support initiatives, both big and small, that contribute to achieving our sustainability goals. For example;

  • We recently became FORS Gold Accredited – demonstrating our commitment to reducing our environmental impact.
  • We have introduced the option for customers to select greener ‘Anytime’ slots for deliveries and collections. This enables fleet vehicles to be packed and dispatched in the most efficient way possible to reduce the number of  journeys required.
  • We are in the process of moving our company sales fleet vehicles from petrol to electric.
  • We have improved our waste facilities at our Superhub to make segregating waste ready for recycling even easier.
  • We are bringing more sustainable products onto our hire fleet and working with an increasing number of carbon neutral suppliers.

Hire Trainee

THX HIRE TRAINEE SCHEME

THX’s Hire Trainee Scheme proactively supports access to work for people entering the workplace for the first time – such as school leavers.

We offer trainees the opportunity to gain experience across different aspects of the business from warehouse operatives through to account management.

We endeavor to equip those in their early careers with self awareness, a range of transferable skills, and potential career direction.

“I Joined THX from school as part of the Hire Trainee scheme, this helped me get a thorough understanding of all departments, improve product knowledge, and learn a lot of skills that have been very useful since I’ve moved into the Account manager team. I have been part of the Account manager team for 2 years now and there would have been a lot of questions I would have been stuck on, if it wasn’t for the experience gained through the hire trainee scheme.”

I joined the THX team at the beginning of 2022.  Following a brief introduction to various roles across the company, I have started off in the warehouse to gain a thorough knowledge of the products and processes including forklift training and delivery driving experience. It’s early days but I appreciate the benefits the hire trainee scheme is bringing and the investment THX makes in its people.”
