Formed in 1981 as Mr Plant Hire, MPH operated on Windmill Hill close to Enfield town centre from a shop with space for one delivery vehicle at the rear until 1997. And it looks like the price of a mini excavator hasn’t changed much since!
In 1997 the business moved to Hertford Road, Enfield which has remained our Head Office since then. We also opened a satellite depot in Argon Road, Edmonton where we grew the Powered Access (PA) division for three years between 2002 and 2005.
In 2005 we combined the fast-growing PA division with the Construction Plant (CP) venture which saw us move into a property on Mollison Avenue until 2015.
2011 Qualified member of PASMA, the international association for the mobile access tower industry | 2013 FORS Bronze was achieved | 2016 FORS silver was achieved | 2019 MPH first achieved IPAF Rental+.
In 2012 we secured premises at Stacey Avenue and moved the Powered Access division there along with the M&E division. And the depot continues to provide great service to this day.
In November 2014 the business was acquired by AER Rents. The group has expanded ever since with four further sister companies all cooperating to support the group.
In 2016 we found the Morson Road site which was purchased by the group. We developed it into a specialist hub for Powered Access vehicles with a dedicated workshop and wash-bay making it the lively, productive workplace it is today.
After 40 years Mr Plant Hire continued to expand supplying top quality plant and tool hire solutions across the south east. Steven King took over as Managing Director in the autumn.
2022 saw a major Brand Refresh reinforce the modernisation taking place. With an emphasis on the initials, an updated logo, corporate font, refreshed colours, vehicle liveries and new look lacross the board.
The opening of our new IPAF Training Centre in Enfield was a highlight of 2022. And it’s not just the premises that have had a complete refurbishment, so have the IT and booking systems.
Our range of lifting and handling solutions is ideal for moving a variety of loads safely and efficiently. The one stop provider for complete lifting and handling equipment in North London.
Change is coming. Sustainability is now widely regarded as the next big revolution and at MPH our Green Team are ready with a comprehensive range of the latest electric and self powered vehicles.
As the business expands, MPH continues to build on the strong reputation we have developed. Some impressive plans are in the pipeline, watch out for the next developments.
