With over 35 years in the forestry and construction industry Elliot Henderson and Son Ltd have always been involved with PLANT HIRE and took the decision in 2015 to expand the fleet and range considerably. Now the company has in excess of over 50 items of plant ranging from 1 to 40-ton excavators, 1 to 30-ton dump trucks and almost everything in between.


Being in the industry for as long as we have has given us the knowledge and contacts to grow the plant department to what we believe to be one of the largest and fastest growing businesses in its sector today in the south east of Scotland. The plant hire business can be a competitive market and in order to compete and be ahead of the game we have invested in some of the most up-to-date equipment and technology such as dozers with the latest GPS systems and excavators with ENG-CON hitches.

We have 2 low-loaders which are available to move machinery as and when required, making the transition from order to site run as smoothly as possible. We also use these to move third-party haulage requests in between our own work so please call for any low loader requests.
