Eureka Hire is now owned and run by Simon Reddy, son of Phil and Sue Reddy who originally brought the Capri Marquee design to the UK market in 1994.
Capri Marquees were originally used as a sun shade in America to help block out the heat, however with some product development they could see that there was also an opportunity to bring the design to the UK.
In 1994 Phil and Sue Reddy ordered two Capri’s as a trial and proceeded to offer them as an alternative to their already established framed tent business ‘The Main Event Marquee Company’. The decision to take that gamble turned out to be a great success! The Capri hire department soon outgrew the frame tents and at it’s peak is installing over twenty Capri’s each weekend throughout the Summer months, across the South East of England.
“As the hire department continues to grow we carefully select products that could further enhance our premium Capri hire service. For us it’s not about becoming a ‘one stop shop’, but about really specialising and focusing in on what we do best!
We set ourselves a certain standard, with only the cleanest, freshest equipment being installed. From beautiful white Capri tops, to immaculate dandy dura matting and polished chrome uplights. Too often we see tired marquees; grubby, patched and dated. This is where being the European Distributor for this beautiful structure gives us a winning advantage over our competitors.
Our customers deserve better, you deserve the best!” (Simon Reddy)
Eureka now specialise in the following services – Capri Marquee Hire, Pagoda/Chinese Hat Hire, Bar Hire, Dance Floor Hire, Refrigerated Trailer Hire and Furniture Hire.
