Now established in the industry for over 30 years Broughton Plant Hire has a wealth of experience and expertise throughout the business from our trained drivers, engineers and depot staff through to our hire desk and management team. This combined with our commitment to ensure that our customers receive the best service possible and a constant investment in our hire fleet has allowed us to build a reputation in the industry of supplying our customers with quality tools and equipment quickly and effectively.

What started in a small yard in east London now operates from four locations in the UK, head office and central hub in Romford Essex, South western depot in Clevedon Bristol, Midlands depot in Alfreton Derbyshire and our latest addition Teams Valley Newcastle. The depots are staffed and resourced locally, fully committed to training and investing in regional communities.
