West End Park on Cayman Brac was a hub of activity, fun and excitement last Saturday April 24th as the MASSIVE GROUP Company of Grand Cayman launched their Brac outlet. The function got underway shortly after mid-day and continued until around 4:30 in the afternoon.
Massive is a Caymanian owned business, now in its 22nd year of operation. Established back in 1998, the company’s main focus is the provision of services for the contractor, “do-it-yourselfer,” as well as, event sector.
“We will be offering a wide range of facilities and construction equipment rentals coupled with equipment and tools, portable toilet rentals and servicing,” said Mr. David Kirkaldy, President of Massive Equipment Rental and Sales Services. “There will also be the provision of party and special event equipment. With the number of projects in the pipeline geared towards Cayman Brac we saw the need to make our presence felt here.”
Massive’s business vision is to rent and sell equipment and provide allied services to contractors, homeowners, and the special events market. Products include compaction equipment, concrete equipment, construction lighting, generators and welders and a host of other equipment. Mr. Kirkaldy advised that opening up on the Brac came after lengthy discussions with a variety of interest groups on the island. He also mentioned that it will be a lot easier to get the island back on track in the event of a hurricane hitting the island. They have also put together a list of how to prepare your home for a hurricane.
Residents were treated to a wide variety of fun activities. There was the ever popular bouncing castle that was a hit with the little ones. Those a little older enjoyed themselves on the slides and swings. Adults and youngsters alike participated in the trail walk with those completing it receiving a bag of Massive goodies. The Bingo event also attracted both adults and children who had an enjoyable time.
Residents were also treated to a wide variety of refreshments throughout the evening’s activities.
In the words of residents, “this will be MASSIVE indeed.”
