O’Flaherty Holdings expands hire offering
O’Flaherty Holdings, the Irish motors-to-plant group, is expand its plant hire interests in the UK and Ireland.
Announcing its acquisition last month of the Derbyshire-based Mainline Hire Group and of Irish-based Drogheda Hire & Sales, which took effect last May, the group will continue to expand its presence in the plant hire market through a combination of strategic acquisitions and organic growth, offering its customers access to a wider offering of modern products and services.
Based in the Co. Louth town of Drogheda, some 30 miles north of Dublin, Drogheda Hire services a burgeoning marketplace stretching along Ireland’s north eastern coast, reaching south into Dublin county and suburbs.
Plans are currently in place to further expand the business, with the opening shortly of a second depot under the Drogheda Hire & Sales name on Dublin’s Long Mile Road, on the busy south-west approach to the city.
O’Flaherty Holdings first invested in plant hire in 2014 with the acquisition of London-based Mr Plant Hire. Going forward, the group states that it will continue to expand its presence in the plant hire market through its AER Rents subsidiary – to be achieved through a combination of strategic acquisitions and organic growth with each business retaining its identity whilst capitalising on the strengths of their collective offerings and reach across the UK and Ireland.
