Newmarket Plant Hire Ltd
Newmarket Plant Hire Ltd was established in 1987 supplying mechanical plant and equipment to the Construction and Civil Engineering Industry. In 1998 a sales shop was formed within the Newmarket Depot to service the requirements of local builders and DIY enthusiasts with small tool sales and consumable items.
1999 saw the opening of our Newmarket Plant Cambridge depot in Nuffield Road Cambridge and in 2000 negotiations were completed with the Sargeant family for the purchase of Sarbir Plant Hire Ltd (Cambridge and Harlow Depots) and Watlington Plant Hire near Kings Lynn. Both Companies had been hiring out plant to the construction industry for the last 30 years bringing with them added experience and expertise to combine with the already well established knowledge of the existing Newmarket Plant Hire team.
This gave Newmarket Plant Hire Ltd depots in Newmarket, Harlow, Kings Lynn and Cambridge. In 2001 the Newmarket Plant Cambridge Depot was moved from Nuffield Road and combined with Sarbir Plant Hires Cambridge depot operating from their Winship Road, Milton, Cambridge premises.
In 2002 the assets of P&R Tool Hire, Luton were acquired adding a fifth depot to the group. In November 2003 the location of the Luton Depot was moved to Bolton Road , this placed the Depot in a more central area and enabled the addition of tool hire, sales and service for Luton . When this new Luton Depot was opened we took the opportunity of rebadging. The Luton Depot was then known as Newmarket Plant Hire Luton. In 2010 Luton Depot was combined with Harlow Depot and the Luton area is now serviced from Harlow.
In 2005 the Plant & Tools Division of Rawley Plant Hire in Basildon were acquired adding a further depot to the Newmarket Plant Group.
To complete full coverage of East Anglia in 2006 a new depot was established in Ipswich which now boasts a large customer base within Suffolk and the surrounding counties. All six depots now have their own sales shops to service local customers.
