The company will now be combined with One Call Hire Limited, to form an exciting new group in the UK self-drive plant hire market. Combined assets of over £150m and a turnover approaching £100m will make the new company a top ten operator in the UK hire market and top three in its field of self-drive plant.

New management

The new company will benefit from a highly experienced management team made up from a combination of some of the existing management from both companies and highly respected new personnel. This new team brings vast experience of the UK hire market, both individually and collectively, and is led by Steve Corcoran, the former CEO of the largest hire company in the UK, Speedy Hire Plc.
