Brit Plant Hire is based in Hollington, just three miles from JCB’s world headquarters in Rocester. The company’s machines have been supplied by dealer Gunn JCB.

Brit Plant Hire Director, Glyn Douglas said: “We’ve seen first hand how rental firms in Derbyshire and Staffordshire are struggling to supply the booming local building trade with compact kit – so we set up Brit Plant Hire to address this need.

“Once we had identified the opportunity, the decision to go with JCB was a simple one. We want to support British industry, we want to support jobs in Staffordshire and we want to offer our customers the best machines and backup available.

“The advice and support we have received from Gunn JCB in Stoke-on-Trent has been fantastic while planning the business and we’re hoping to forge a long-term partnership with a world-class local manufacturer. Early feedback on our business concept has been exceptional, so we’re excited to start working with plant users in the region.”

The new Brit Plant Hire machines will make their first public appearance on the Gunn JCB stand at the Staffordshire County Show on May 31st.
