After successfully playing host the the popular magazines flagship event in 2021, M O’Brien is pleased to welcome back the UK Plant Operators to our LB Silica sand quarry for their revamped, bigger and better Plant Operator of the year competition.

M O’Brien Plant Hire will join Topcon as co headline sponsors for this spectacular event. The UK Plant operators team are searching the UK to find the most skilled plant operatives and give them the recognition they deserve and we are proud to be helping them with that journey.

The 2021 event was highly successful and provided a spectacle for spectators, exhibitors and fellow operators, with over 21 exhibitors in attendance it also provided suppliers to the construction industry a platform to showcase their products and innovations to a unique target audience.

With interest high and registrations from operators growing rapidly, the whole team are very excited to be presenting an even bigger event this year. Tickets for the event will be available from spring as we look forward to welcoming fans and families for a fun packed day out that will see the champion of operators for 2022 crowned.

M O’Brien Plant hire is renowned across the UK for the experience and skill of its plant operators working on some of the largest and most technical infrastructure projects across the UK, including HS2, Thames Tideway, multiple Rail and Smart motorway schemes.

M O’Brien is always on the lookout for skilled operators to join our team. UK Plant operators published a great feature about what it is like to work for M O’Brien in their last issue which can be found here they also feature a fantastic gallery of images from last years competition.
