The history of H. E. Services Backhoe Loaders

In 1985, the groundwork for the H. E. Services (Plant Hire) Ltd empire was being meticulously laid by our visionary chairman, Hugh Edeleanu. During these formative years, Hugh was already demonstrating his prowess in the world of construction. In particular the hire of backhoe loaders and dumper trucks.

A Remarkable Assignment

One of the initial chapters in our storied history was the commissioning of a car park project that demanded Hugh’s specialised expertise. This project wasn’t your run-of-the-mill endeavour; it was entrusted to Hugh by a highly respected member of the Gillingham business community.

In keeping with his hands-on approach, Hugh took it upon himself to personally oversee the project’s successful completion. He did so with the assistance of his dependable JCB 3C and a Dumper to ensure every detail was executed flawlessly.

Unwavering Commitment to Excellence

During these early days, the primary focus was crystal clear: deliver excellence, meet demanding timelines, and adhere to strict budgets. Hugh, as the dedicated figurehead of our burgeoning enterprise, exemplified these principles through his active involvement in this pivotal project, a fact that can be observed in the photograph where he stands proudly in front of the dumper.

The Versatile JCB 3CX Backhoe Loader
