Southern Plant motors ahead

Southern Plant Hire reports brisk business levels. The Henley-on-Thames-based company has also enhanced its delivery fleet and has expansion plans.

“Telehandlers have been very much in demand, along with mini excavators, dumpers, rollers, mixers and the like,” says Commercial Director Vince Rose. “During lockdown many home owners and contractors were busy on domestic projects.”

The latest vehicle addition is a bespoke 32-tonne rigid truck from the specialist supplier Andover Trailers, mounted on an 8x2 Scania chassis. It includes a double crank beavertail connected to hydraulic power toe rams, and an electric winch to facilitate loading and unloading.

Southern Plant plans to open a second depot in Brackley, Northamptonshire, early next year.
