A-Plant buys Poole hirer


A-PLANT has bought Poole plant and tool hirer Howard Plant for £436,000 to beef up its south coast network.

The final price is subject to the firm physically inspecting the assets it is to buy and to a deferred payment based on the hire income from the new firm.

Howard will retain the skip hire section of its business, which will be moved to a new location.

The Howard plant and tools business had a turnover of £600,000 last year.
