Parker Plant Hire Director Charlie Perry explains the reason for the sale: “The decision that my co-director, Barry Williams, and I have taken to sell the plant and associated equipment from our construction and agricultural machinery business is part of a strategic plan to grow the portable accommodation and welfare business both in Llanelli and at our new depot in Reading. Our investment will include new towable and static welfare cabins, new anti-vandal cabins, stores, and toilets, as well as introducing new generator technology and renewable energy systems to power all our cabins, plus updating the delivery fleet. The staff within the business will remain in post, and that dedicated team will remain at the Llanelli and Reading depot and be instrumental in the continued development of the business.”

David Betts, of Euro Auctions and manager of this sale, said: “I have known Parker Plant Hire and its associated business for many years. The inventory for this sale is bound to pique the interest of buyers in the contracting sectors, as on sale is a good solid compliment of well-maintained equipment. With equipment ranging from 2007 to 2019 plate machines and in excellent overall condition, this sale will draw much attention from bidders looking to re-stock their own businesses, as well as buyers of single items, so this sale will have something for everyone.”
