Capital win


A general manager of a Porstmouth contractor has won £5,000 of free hire from GE Capital Equipment Services in an online competition. Paul Lewis, of Reds Builders, won the bounty after doing an online survey. Mr Lewis said while he used the internet to get contacts and information, he would not hire plant online, since he preferred to negotiate prices with a real person.
