Mabey Group expands into Australasia

Mabey Group has acquired APlant Hire and its entry into the Australasian shoring market.

Known as Mabey Hire PTY Ltd (Aust) & Mabey Hire Ltd (NZ), the company launched its hire operations from three the existing depots in Australia and one in New Zealand.

Mabey will use the newly acquired depots in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Christchurch to provide the construction and engineering industry with a range of rental and resell equipment; including aluminium shoring boxes and safety handrails, steel road-plates, bridging, sheet piling and hydraulic supports; with the potential to add further Mabey products in the future.

Expansion plans, based on those of Mabey Hire UK, include the addition of numerous depots in Australia and New Zealand in the next 12 months.
