Plantforce Rentals acquires Hawk Plant Hinkley assets

Filed under: Latest News — EHN Team @ 4:16 pm

South-west of England based construction machinery hire company Plantforce Rentals has agreed to acquire the assets and staff from Hawk Plant (UK) Ltd associated with the Hinkley Point C project in Somerset.

Hawk Plant (UK) recently fell into administration and Plantforce has taken over the affected 100-plus machines and associated workforce situated at the site.

Plantforce, which already has 186 items of plant on the site and has worked alongside Hawk for the last four years, has agreed to take on all site-based machinery, contracts and infrastructure, in turn securing the employment of over 100 full time plant operators based in the south-west.

Claire Trott, MD of Plantforce Rentals, said, “This is a sad outcome for a company which has dominated the plant hire world for many years and a company we have very much respected. This is a strategic decision with our main priority being to secure the continued employment of the workforce on site and minimise the impact on the Hinkley Point C project.

“It has taken the last four days to secure the contract, works and staff. Plantforce’s fast reaction and ability to adapt has been key in making this deal happen but it could not have been done without the input of Peter Carney and Alastair Lomax from [law firm] TLT and all the team members from administrators EY and venture capital group BGF who have worked tirelessly through the weekend and this week to achieve what is a good outcome for all parties.”
