SERVICES (PLANT HIRE) LTD, was founded in 1972, and is the UK’s largest specialist excavator hire company, boasting a fleet exceeding 3500 items of plant, which are offered for hire nationwide, via ten strategically located depots. H.E. SERVICES pride themselves on having Britain’s most up-to-date fleet of machines and are committed to replacing their entire fleet every two to three years to ensure customers get the most efficient, reliable and high-performing products on the market.

GLOSROSE was established in 1976 as a family business. Having successfully developed into a nationwide company, they still retain the values that have been the foundation for their growth over many years. The close relationship that H.E.

The order consists of a large number of 6 Metre Manitou MT625T machines, as well as MT932 9 Metre machines, MT1335 13 Metre machines and MT1840 18 Metre machines. To maintain a high standard for all their customers, all machines in H.E. SERVICES fleet are between 0 – 3 years of age, so as to maintain consistency and reliability for every customer.

Commenting on the decision to order Manitou Telehandlers for their fleet renewal programme, Peter Durey, Managing Director of H.E. SERVICES said: “The purchase of our new Manitou machines underlines H.E. SERVICES’ strategy of ensuring we have the most up-to-date fleet in the UK, comprising the most advanced and productive machines currently On the market. We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Glosrose Construction over the years and had no hesitation in increasing the number of Manitou telehandlers in our fleet.”
