The PSS Hire Story
We are proud to be firmly established as the market leader in the gas, water, electricity and civil engineering sectors, with over 8,000 items of specialist plant available to hire, a dedicated team of over 130 colleagues, and more than 12 Service Centres across the UK and Ireland.
In December 2015, we acquired the trade and assets of Euremica Limited - the specialist provider in the sale and hire of test, measurement and process control instruments.
In September 2014, we acquired the hire and repair business of East Coast Construction Services Ltd (ECCS), based in Bathgate near Edinburgh. Just a month later we announced the acquisition of Hy-Ram Engineering (Scotland). Both businesses have been successfully integrated into the PSS Hire network.
In July 2013, Plant & Site Services was acquired by A-Plant, one of the UK’s leading plant, tool and equipment hire companies. This significantly enhanced our fleet of equipment and network coverage, as A-Plant’s Trenchless Technology depots were incorporated. The company was re-branded as PSS Hire and became a division of A-Plant.
Our depot network grew over the years and by late 2012, the company operated a total of five locations.
Plant & Site Services was formed and was initially based in St Albans, Hertfordshire, at a site where we are still based today.
