Demand Driving Dumper Investment for Colmer Plant Hire.


Essex based Colmer Plant Hire have invested further in their growing fleet of Thwaites 9-ton and 6-ton cabbed dumpers, starting 2019 with the delivery of their 10thmachine.

The Brentwood based business, which was started 12 years ago by Michael Colmer said, “Our business remains as committed today as it was when we first started, we offer Customers quality equipment at a reasonable rate, with a first-class service”.

Driven by a strong housing and infrastructure market, the South East Hirer now operates a fleet of six cabbed dumpers.

Mr Colmer went on to say, “We are very close to our customer, it became apparent that Thwaites cabbed dumpers were being asked for by name, driven by the safety, control and comfort features the dumper offers. Our initial order of two machines, went out on hire as quickly as they came in. So we backed them up with two more, which in turn led to more orders, meaning we added a further pair”.

The machines have each been sourced through Thwaites Distributor for the region Ernest Doe. Sales Manager for Doe, Nigel Booley said, “Colmer plant hire run a mixed plant and tool hire fleet. I have worked closely with Michael, ensuring the Colmer dumper fleet is ideally sized and specified to match their Customers’ needs, in addition to adding value to their operation”.

Thwaites Distribution Manager Paul Rodwell said “Plant Hire is a key sector for Thwaites, we have been serving and satisfying the Hire market since the mid 1960’s, when we dealt with the pioneers of plant hire. So it is always a great pleasure when we see more hire companies growing, owning and operating a Thwaites dumper fleet”.

Concluding Michael Colmer said “We are very confident about the future of both the Construction and Plant Hire markets.  With demand and project starts in the region set to continue, we look forward to offering Colmer customers a continued supply of products and machines that will improve productivity on site.
