Our Journey

The beginning
Origins of the company

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!

New premises
Moving on up

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.

Continued expansion
The next level

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.

Professional accreditations
and associations
Getting fully qualified

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+.

New premises, new products
Setting up at Stacey

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.

Together we are stronger
Joining forces

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.

Moving in to Morson Road
Reaching for the skies

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.

Celebrating 40 years of trading
Building on experience

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.
