January 1983. 1200 square feet in Strathaven. The local demand for a hire business that could react quickly to those urgent trade demands and last minute DIY needs was the cornerstone of the business founded by Ronnie Fraser 40 years ago. And really, it is still the reason we exist today, steered on by Colin Fraser and with a focus on putting the customer first with leading brand names across our ranges.
Our HQ now extends over 2 acres, based in Hamilton, with 40 professionals looking after the needs of all kinds of organisations from national construction companies to local Council Works, skilled tradesmen to individual homeowners. Add to that, a service depot that looks after upwards of 200 pieces of heavy Plant Equipment at any one time.
