About Pink Boots Hire

Pink Boots Hire is an access equipment company providing scissor lifts, knuckle booms, cherry pickers and more to the signage, electrical and construction industries. $10 from every hire is donated the the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre.

Why the Pink Boots?

Another cause very close to our hearts having had many family and friends go through breast cancer, we decided to help Steel Blue give breast cancer the Boot. The boots we wear as part of our uniform are designed for safety and comfort but best of all, $10 from every pair sold goes directly towards people across Australia that are affected by breast cancer.

Our People

Hugh Gilchrist


Hugh is the jack-of-all-trades. He has been in business for over 30 years and is very passionate about mentoring Jake and Jess through a successful career – so he can retire! Hugh has a number of businesses in the manufacturing and construction field. Focus and motivation is an understatement for Hugh, he literally lives and breathes business and absolutely loves it. He has a strong interest in building and developing as a sole proprietor. Hugh is a dynamo.

Jake Gilchrist


Jake is full of energy and thrives on life. He is a dedicated family man, has a strong interest in business, is a qualified electrician with a specialty in solar and likes to be hands on. He is practical in his work and a problem solver. Jake is passionate and always looking for ways to move the business forward. He is a lover of the ocean and approach with caution should you bring up fishing (you may never be able to leave)

Warren Fowler


Warren, aka ‘Wazza’ is a man of routine. This is a quality that is imperative to the Pink Boots family. He is loyal, has a sense of humor (he did take a little time to crack) and consistently on time. Warren has a navy service background and you can certainly see the training history in his everyday practices. Nothing worries Warren, he is always open to learning new things, is a team player and most importantly is always cautious and careful on the roads.

Jess Gilchrist

Business Development

Jess wants to live in a world filled with innovative businesses. She is an exuberant go getter and constantly poised to tackle the next big challenge. Jess sees what she does as more than a job, she is on a mission to transform and illuminate, with a sharp eye for detail and execution. In 2015 she beat a serious battle with cancer and of course, she approached her cancer journey the same way she faces every bump in the road, with tenacity and optimism. Jess is a powerhouse.

Kat Knight

Sales & Operations Manager

Kat is our go to for everything. She holds the team together and keeps us all on our toes. She is always looking at the bigger picture and therefore one of her most common questions is the reason “why?” something is to be done rather than “how”. She is our most creative minded team member being an illustrative artist in her spare time. Kat loves a pint of dark ale in the afternoon, will try to convert you to Pilates and – very true to her name – loves four legged friends.

Dean Lowe

Service Manager

Dean is our equipment, fitting and hydraulics specialist and comes to the team with former access industry experience, previously residing at one of our valued partnered JLG industries. Dean is a family man and his ultimate goal is to be the best Dad in the world (which he says he has already achieved). Being a man of many talents, you can give him a challenge and his first response is always “If I don’t know how to do it, I will figure it out”. Dean finds order amongst chaos, maintains a great attitude, loves a good game of baseball and can be a bit of a clown – once the penny drops.
