H. E. Services Celebrates Managing Director In His 25th Year With The Company

Undoubtedly, a significant portion of H. E. Services (Plant Hire) Ltd‘s remarkable success can be attributed to its current Managing Director, Peter Durey. Peter’s journey with H. E. Services began in February 1982 when he crossed paths with Hugh during military training in Weymouth. Notably, Peter’s father held the role of Commandant at the Army Training site, a connection that Hugh still vividly remembers to this day. He recalls a young Peter skillfully performing wheelies on his motorbike within the Army Training Area.

In 1987, Peter’s dedication led to his promotion to Workshop Foreman, where he played a key role in establishing the new workshops at Holborough Works in Snodland. This facility was a substantial improvement from their previous cramped shed. By 1990, Peter had advanced to the position of Snodland Depot Manager. When H. E. Services relocated from Snodland to its current site in Strood in 1994, Peter continued to serve as the Depot Manager, overseeing an even larger depot.

A short while later, Peter relinquished his Depot Manager role to spearhead the creation of the ‘Company Service Department.’ Responsible for managing the mechanical aspects of the entire organisation, not limited to the Strood Depot. Peter’s career continued to ascend within the company, and in 1998, he was offered and accepted the position of Operations Director.

In 1999, as H. E. Services underwent a restructuring into the current Group format. Peter was once again promoted, this time to the role of Managing Director of H. E. Services (Plant Hire) Ltd. This is the position he proudly holds today. At that time, the company operated only seven depots. Thanks to Peter’s unwavering dedication and hard work, more depots were opened over the years.

It’s worth noting that 25 years ago, Peter started as an Apprentice Fitter. Today he stands as the Managing Director of ‘Britain’s preferred company for excavator hire.’ Peter’s remarkable journey and achievements are truly commendable, and the entire H. E. Group extends their warm congratulations to him while hoping he enjoys the Grand Prix.
